Voice Concerns Over BuildingCostly

New Vogtle NuclearReactorsin Georgia

takeactionAttend PublicMeeting & Submit Comments

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is holding a public meeting on Thursday, Oct. 7, 2010 in Waynesboro, Georgia to discuss the NRC’s Draft nonukeSupplemental Environmental Impact Statement (DSEIS) that unfortunately recommends approving the Vogtle combined operating license that could allow Georgia Power and their utility partners to build two more nuclear reactors costing an estimated $14 billion at the existing Vogtle nuclear power plant in Burke County near Waynesboro along the Savannah River. The NRC is also accepting public comments on the draft report until November 24, 2010. Speak out!

The NRC needs to hear your concerns—this may be the LAST opportunity to comment on the federal licensing of the proposed Vogtle nuclear reactors! Let them know that Georgians need, want and DESERVE clean, safe and affordable energy choices such as energy efficiency, wind, solar, and biopower that don’t drain our pocketbooks or our precious water resources.

  • When: Thursday, Oct. 7, 2010 from 7-10 pm (Informal “open house” session with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission from 6-7 pm)
  • Where: Waynesboro Auditorium of the Augusta Technical College, Waynesboro/Burke Campus, 216 Highway 24 South, Waynesboro, GA, 30830.
  • How: Sign up at least 15 minutes before the start of the meeting to provide public comments. For further information, contact Mallecia Sutton by telephone at 800-368-5642, x0673, or via email at VOGTLE.COLAEIS@nrc.gov.
