NRC Schedules Webinars to Present Environmental Findings on Proposed Spent Nuclear Fuel Storage Facility in Texas

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission will hold four webinars in October to present its draft environmental findings and receive comments on Interim Storage Partners’ proposed consolidated spent nuclear fuel storage facility in Andrews County, Texas.

The NRC remains committed to opportunities for the public to inform the agency’s decisions related to its draft Environmental Impact Statement on the ISP proposal. In 2017, the NRC staff held two webinars and two in-person meetings in Texas and New Mexico. This fall, the agency planned similar public meetings; however, in-person meetings during the comment period will not be possible because of the COVID-19 public health emergency.

Information for the webinars will be posted on the NRC’s Public Meetings webpage. They will be held at different times of the day to maximize opportunities for the public to participate. The webinars are tentatively scheduled for Oct. 1 from 6-9 p.m.; Oct. 6 from 2-5 p.m.; Oct. 8 from 6-9 p.m.; and Oct. 15 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. All times are Eastern.

The draft EIS for ISP’s proposed consolidated interim spent nuclear fuel storage facility was published in May for a 120-day public comment period, which has been extended because of the COVID-19 public health emergency, for a total comment period of 180 days.

Comments will be accepted through Nov. 3, including by mail to the Office of Administration, Mail Stop: TWFN-7-A60M, ATTN: Program Management, Announcements and Editing Staff, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555-0001; email at WCS_CISF_EIS@nrc.gov; and posting online at the federal government’s rulemaking website, using Docket ID NRC-2016-0231. Information regarding the NRC’s review of the ISP application is available on the NRC website, including the draft EIS, reader’s guides in English and Spanish, and a detailed explanation of how to submit comments.

ZOOM WEBINAR: Security & Nuclear Power, 9/28, 8 pm ET

ZOOM WEBINAR: 

Security & Nuclear Power, 9/28, 8 pm ET


The September 11, 2001 attacks on the U.S. using hijacked commercial aircraft heightened security concerns around the nuclear power industry. The hijackers flew flight training missions over New York’s Indian Point nuclear power station. United Flight 99 crashed just 130 miles from Pennsylvania’s Three Mile Island power station.


Nuclear security concerns include criminal and military-style acts -- armed intrusion, vehicles or missiles carrying explosives, and insider sabotage -- targeting operating nuclear stations or radioactive materials including nuclear waste. 


Three Mile Island Alert security consultant Scott Portzline is hosting a Zoom webinar on this topic Monday, September 28 at 8PM ET. Register
