NRC to discuss Pilgrim Station safety inspection on March 21 at Memorial Hall

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission will discuss the NRC’s assessment of safety performance at the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station during the 2016 calendar year at Memorial Hall on Tuesday, March 21, 2017.

The NRC will also discuss preliminary conclusions from the recent inspection stemming from Pilgrim’s poor safety rating.

Members of the public will have the opportunity to pose questions and offer comments to the NRC. The meeting begins at 6 p.m. and doors will open to the public at 5 p.m. People who wish to speak will be required to sign up prior to entering the main auditorium. The order of public speakers will be determined at selection, so there is no need to line up early to reserve a place.

Since the NRC will be using a projector and laptop for its presentation, attendees will be permitted to display up to three slides or pages in PDF or PowerPoint format when speaking. Slides must be e-mailed to no later than March 17, 2017. Due to computer security concerns, the NRC will not be able to accept electronic media on site. The submission of slides does not guarantee an attendee will be selected to speak. The order of speakers will be determined by random selection.

NRC security and local law enforcement representatives will conduct searches of personal items outside the entrance to the main auditorium. No weapons of any kind are permitted. Any props should be fairly lightweight and should not contain any metal fixtures or sharp edges. Signs, banners, posters, and displays not larger than 18” x 18” are permitted in the meeting room, although sticks, poles, or other similar devices are prohibited.
