Voice Concerns Over BuildingCostly
New Vogtle NuclearReactorsin Georgia
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 Supplemental 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.
Please submit written comments no later than November 24, 2010.
