NRC to Meet with Public to Discuss License Termination Plans for Trojan Nuclear Plant

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff will meet with the public to hear comments and answer questions on the plan for terminating the commercial operating license of the Trojan Nuclear Plant, Unit 1, held by Portland General Electric Company.

The meeting will be Tuesday, December 7 from 7-9 p.m. at the Best Western -- Oak Meadows, 585 S. Columbia River Highway, St. Helens, Oregon.

All interested citizens are invited to attend and ask questions or comment on the license termination plan as submitted to the NRC by PGE on August 5. PGE officials will make a short presentation on the details of the plan, and NRC officials will discuss applicable regulations.

A copy of the termination plan is available for review at the Branford Price Millar Library, Portland State University, 934 S.W. Harrison, Portland, OR, 97207; and at the NRC Public Document Room, 2120 L St. N.W., Washington, D.C., 20037.

The Trojan Nuclear Plant began commercial operation in May 1976 and was shutdown permanently in January, 1993. The plant currently is being dismantled and decontaminated. The reactor vessel, which represented 99.9 percent of the remaining radioactive material, excluding the spent fuel, was removed from the site in August. Spent fuel will be stored in a dry cask storage facility at the site until a permanent U.S. repository is available.
