The California Coastal Commission will meet Tuesday in Long Beach to hear testimony about the shuttered San Onofre Nuclear Power Station in San Diego County and how to best store spent nuclear fuel. This is the Chapter's stance. If you want to attend, the meeting starts at noon Tuesday at the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center. Here's a link to the agenda and other details, including how to live stream the session.
To: California Coastal Commissioners Effie Turnbull-Sanders, Dayna Bochco, Mary Luevano, Wendy Mitchell, Mary Shallenberger and Mark Vargas:
I write in support of the application by Southern California Edison Company to construct and operate an Independent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI) for storage of spent nuclear fuel from Units 2 and 3 at the San Onofre Nuclear Power Station in San Diego County.
Those who care about the California coast have two primary concerns regarding spent nuclear fuel at San Onofre. The first concern is to move fuel rods from pools to dry cask storage as rapidly as possible. The second concern is to remove storage casks from the vulnerable San Onofre site at the earliest available opportunity.
