LACEY – The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) announced that they will hold a public meeting to discuss the Post-Shutdown Decommissioning Activities Report (PSDAR) and to receive comments from the public.

The meeting will be held on July 17 from 6-9 p.m. at the Community Hall in Lacey Township, 101 North Main Street, Forked River.

On May 21, the NRC received the PSDAR for the Oyster Creek Nuclear Generating Station. The PSDAR includes the site-specific decommissioning cost estimate, an overview of Exelon Generation’s plans for decommissioning, a schedule, projected costs, and environmental impacts for Oyster Creek.


While the public meeting is to gauge the response from the public on the report, the NRC requests that comments that are not provided during the meeting be submitted in writing by September 10, 2018.
