NRC seeks public input

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission will conduct public meetings Tuesday and Wednesday in Augusta to seek input on the planned development of a draft regulatory document for potential rulemaking on spent nuclear fuel reprocessing facilities. Topic will include classifications of nuclear waste, costs of disposal and design/safety considerations, according to the agenda.

The purpose of this meeting is to obtain comments from stakeholders on the staff's approach for the gaps and topics associated with the regulatory basis for rulemaking for spent nuclear fuel reprocessing facilities. The intended objective at this type of meeting is for the public to work with the NRC and to provide a range of views, information, concerns and suggestions with regard to regulatory issues.

 The meetings will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn Augusta, 1065 Stevens Creek Road, Augusta.
