NRC seeks comments on annual assessment of Peach Bottom nuke

In addition to an open house planned for tonight to discuss its 2011 assessment of the Peach Bottom nuclear power plant, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff will provide a formal opportunity for any member of the public who would like to offer comments or ask questions to do so.

The open house set for tonight will take place from 6 to 7 p.m. at the Peach Bottom Inn, at 6085 Delta Road in Delta, Pa. Members of the public will have an opportunity during the open house to learn first-hand from NRC staff members about the plant’s safety performance during 2011 and the NRC’s oversight of the facility. It will be followed by a more traditional public comment session which will get under way at 7 p.m. at the same location.

Peach Bottom, which is the site of two boiling-water reactors, is located in Delta (York County), Pa., and is owned and operated by Exelon Generation Co. LLC.
