Public Meeting Alert

Nuclear Advocacy Network


Public Meeting Alert

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will host a public meeting on consent-based siting of spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste on June 2. This is the fifth in a series of public meetings aimed at hearing from the public and interested stakeholders on what matters to you as DOE moves forward in developing a consent-based process for siting storage facilities.
As nuclear energy advocates, we must ensure that the conversation around the siting and storage of nuclear materials is balanced and therefore it's important that we engage in this process that DOE is undertaking. Your expertise is valuable so please plan to attend, view the webcast or submit questions and comments.
