2013-09-10 Mothers for Peace asks SLO Board of Supervisors for Faster Transfer of Radioactive Waste into Casks

The overcrowded spent fuel pools present the greatest dangers at the Diablo Canyon nuclear plant.

On September 10, 2013, San Luis Obispo Mothers for Peace addressed the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors during public comment time.  MFP asked the Board to send a letter to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and Pacific Gas and Electric Company urging an accelerated schedule for moving the radioactive wastes currently stored in overcrowded and unprotected spent fuel pools at the Diablo Canyon nuclear plant into dry casks.

Jane Swanson and Linda Seeley, spokespersons for MFP, delivered a prepared statement on behalf of the organization.  Read it here: http://mothersforpeace.org/data/2013-items/2013-09-10
