The Nuclear Regulatory Commission will hold a public meeting Tuesday, October 9 to discuss the status of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station with the public.

The two-part meeting will be held between 6 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Hotel, located at 1 Monarch Beach North in Dana Point. There is a nominal parking fee.

The first part of the meeting will be a facilitated discussion of topics of significant public interest. The second part of the meeting will include a question-and-answer session between regulatory commission representatives and the public. Representatives are currently being selected by the commission and local interest groups.

The regulatory commission is also trying to set up a webcast of the meeting for those who are unable to attend. Additional details will be provided at a later date.

“We want to provide members of the public with an opportunity to get their questions answered on a broad range of topics related to San Onofre,” regional administrator Elmo C. Collins said in a news release. “We think the roundtable discussion, along with an open question-and-answer session, will provide people with a means of doing this.”
