  • Follow Metro

The Nuclear Regulatory Com­mission will hold a public meeting Feb. 8 in Atlanta to discuss construction related to the addition of two reactors at Plant Vogtle.

The two-hour meeting will begin at 1 p.m. at NRC offices at 245 Peachtree Center Ave. NW and include discussions by officials from Southern Nuclear and the NRC’s Center for Con­struc­tion Inspection, according to the agenda.

Though site preparation and related activities have been under way for years, the company is awaiting NRC action on a final combined operating license that would authorize the construction and operation of the new reactors.

About 1,700 workers are employed at the site of Units 3 and 4.
