DIABLO CANYON POWER PLANT, UNIT 1: NRC to Hold Public Meeting to Discuss 2017 Performance of Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant

Source: Diablo Canyon Power Plant, Unit 1

Diablo Canyon Power Plant, Unit 1 issued the following announcement on July 20.

Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff will discuss the 2017 safety performance of the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant, operated by Pacific Gas & Electric Co., during a meeting with the public on August 28.

The meeting, to be held at the Embassy Suites Hotel, 333 Madonna Road, San Luis Obispo, Calif., will run from 6-8 p.m. NRC employees responsible for plant inspections, including the resident inspectors based full-time at the site, will be available to discuss its performance.

Diablo Canyon operated safely during 2017 and will receive the normal level of NRC oversight, which entails thousands of hours of inspection each year.

The NRC Reactor Oversight Process uses color-coded inspection findings and indicators to measure plant performance. The colors start at green and increase to white, yellow or red, commensurate with the safety significance of the issues involved. Inspection findings or performance indicators with more than very low safety significance trigger increased NRC oversight.

Inspections are performed by two NRC resident inspectors and inspection specialists from Region IV in Arlington, Texas. 

The annual assessment letter for Diablo Canyon as well as the notice for the meeting, are available on the NRC website. Current performance information for Unit 1 and Unit 2 is also available.
