Federal regulators plan a hearing Jan. 26 on a challenge to a French company's bid to build a third reactor at the Calvert Cliffs nuclear power plant, and will take public comments the day before.
The Atomic Safety and Licensing Board will air contentions by four anti-nuclear groups that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff has not adequately weighed alternatives to building the facility. The hearing begins at 9:30 a.m. in the Albright Building, 205 Main St. in Prince Frederick.
Two separate sessions for the public to comment on UniStar's application will be held at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. Jan. 25 at the Calvert Marine Museum 14150 Solomons Island Road in Solomons. Pre-registration is required to speak there. For details, see http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-collections/news/2012/12-002.pdf
