San Onofre Community Engagement Panel Meeting to Include Updates on Dismantlement Progress
ROSEMEAD, Calif., June 10, 2021 — The San Onofre Community Engagement Panel will receive an update on dismantlement activities at the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station during its second quarter meeting beginning at 5:30 p.m. on June 17. The meeting will take place via Microsoft Teams video conference as SCE and CEP members continue to follow COVID-19 protocols for safety, which includes physical distancing.
Several structures on the San Onofre site have already been removed and more are being demolished. Time-lapse videos have been posted to the SONGS Community website showing the demolition work.
“This is an opportunity for the CEP membership and the public to learn more about the decommissioning work at SONGS,” said David Victor, CEP chair. “We’ll hear from those involved in the demolition, how they are keeping workers and the environment safe, and what will be happening at the site in the years ahead.”
The CEP will receive a presentation on waste management, taking a deeper dive on the rail shipments that will be leaving the site bound primarily for Utah but also Texas.
Members of the public can view the meeting video conference by first visiting SONGScommunity.com, where a link to the meeting is provided. Through the web page dedicated to the meeting, members of the public can register to provide comments during the meeting.
When SCE announced the retirement of San Onofre Units 2 and 3 in June 2013, it established the core principles of safety, stewardship and engagement to guide decommissioning.
