NRC to Hold Mandatory Hearing on North Anna New Reactor Application
Nuclear Regulatory Commission will conduct a mandatory hearing March 23
on an application for a Combined License to build and operate a new
reactor at the North Anna site in Virginia. This hearing marks the final step in the agency’s Part 52 reactor licensing process.
Commission’s hearing will include testimony and exhibits from applicant
Dominion Virginia Power, as well as NRC staff, on the question of
whether the staff’s review adequately supports the findings necessary to
issue the license. The Commission will vote later this year on whether
that question has been properly answered.
