New Nuclear Reactors in Levy
Date: Thursday, September 23, 2010
Time: 1:30 PM – 4:30 PM;7:00 PM – 10:00 PM
(Informal “open house” sessions with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission from 12:30-1:30 pm and 6-7 pm)
Location:Plantation Inn, 9301 West Fort Island Trail in Crystal River, FL 34429
* What: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is holding two identical public meetings on Thursday September 23, 2010 in Crystal River, Florida to discuss the NRC’s Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for Progress Energy’s proposal to build two new Westinghouse AP1000 nuclear reactors at an undeveloped site in Levy County. The NRC is the government agency responsible for licensing commercial nuclear power plants and is holding these meetings to get input from the local community on their draft report that mistakenly recommends approval of the $22.5 billion project.
* How: Sign up at least 15 minutes before the start of the meeting to provide public comments. For further information, contact Douglas Bruner by telephone at 800-368-5642, x2730, or via email at Levy.COLEIS@nrc.gov.
Can’t attend? Please submit written comments no later than October 26, 2010.
Speak out! The NRC needs to hear your concerns.
Tell them that instead of new nuclear reactors, Floridians need and want affordable, clean and safe energy choices such as energy efficiency, wind, solar, and biopower.
