Given the avalanche of known and expected nuclear reactors on the chopping block, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission has freshened up its webpage on decommissioning. Bonus: Learn what the corporations and its captive regulator want you to know in this shiny new video, “Five Minutes with an NRC Experts [sic] on Decommissioning.”
The public is invited to make comments at two points: after the owner’s post-shutdown decommissioning activities report goes to the NRC, and after the license termination plan goes to the NRC. “In addition, when NRC holds a meeting with the licensee, members of the public may observe the meeting (except when the discussion involves proprietary, sensitive, safeguards, or classified information).” The video mentions the possibility of a Community Advisory panel or board but there is nothing on the webpage about that.
Here is the website: http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-collections/fact-sheets/decommissioning.html and the video on YouTube
