San Luis Obispo Mothers for Peace presents arguments to the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board to show that PG&E's Severe Accident Mitigation Analysis inadequately considers seismic risks at Diablo Canyon nuclear plant.
PG&E's attempt to disqualify Mothers for Peace's Contention EC - 1 should be denied because the Scheduling Order of the ASLB is still in effect. Omissions in PG&E's seismic studies of the Shoreline Fault result in a lack of understanding of the seismic risks to the Diablo Canyon nuclear plant.
