OREPA will host an important public meeting on safety issues at the new bomb plant proposed for Oak Ridge. Even after the half-billion-dollar design fiasco at the Uranium Processing Facility, the government continues to cut corners on safety to save money. The potential impacts on people living within 25 miles of Oak Ridge are monstrous.
This meeting, on Sunday, December 8 at Church of the Savior on Weisgarber Rd in Knoxville will look at documented safety issues. We will begin at 6:30pm with a potluck dinner; the meeting will begin at 7:00pm.
Two days later, on Tuesday, December 10, the Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board will hold a public meeting in Knoxville at the Convention Center beginning at 8:00am and lasting until 6:00pm.
