Call in Today on Ft. Calhoun Nuclear Reactor

Fort Calhoun Nuclear Power Plant

Fort Calhoun Nuclear Power Plant

Nebraskans and Iowans

Please call in Tuesday, Aug. 27, from 1:30 until 4 p.m. CDT to listen and speak at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission meeting with Omaha Public Power District (OPPD) to oppose the restart and call for a License Amendment before restarting the Fort Calhoun nuclear reactor

Dear Friends,

The Omaha Public Power District (OPPD) plans to restart the dangerous Fort Calhoun nuclear reactor after more than two years of being shut down for refueling, flooding, lost blueprints, insufficient structural beam and column support of equipment, future flood dangers from routine floods and an upstream dam failure. Flooding during operation of the plant could short electrical systems and affect cooling and other operations. It has also been discovered that the plant was built on top of fractured limestone, so a radioactive leak would go into the groundwater and the Missouri River.

This meeting will be on Tuesday, Aug. 27, from 1:30 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. Central time.

The public can present comments and questions at the end of the meeting.

We need as many folks as possible to let the NRC know that Fort Calhoun is not ready to restart and that OPPD needs to apply for a license amendment before the plant is allowed to restart.

The call-in number for the meeting is 1-877-917-3405, passcode 3179621.
