On May 31, 2018, NRC staff held a meeting in Homestead, Florida to seek the public’s views on environmental issues that the agency should consider in reviewing an application from Florida Power & Light (FP&L) for an additional 20 years of operation for Turkey Point Nuclear Generating Units 3 and 4.
During the meetings, which were held at the City of Homestead City Hall, staff gave presentations that describe the environmental review process and the proposed review schedule. Each meeting’s presentations were followed by a formal public comment period. NRC also held open houses to provide the public with the opportunity to speak informally with agency staff. NRC staff will consider written comments that were submitted on environmental issues before the deadline of June 21, 2018.
FP&L submitted the Turkey Point subsequent license renewal application on January 30, 2018. The subsequent license renewal process determines whether an operating reactor license can be extended for an additional 20 years.
The FP&L application, minus proprietary details, is available on the NRC website at www.nrc.gov. For additional information, please contact Scott Burnell of the NRC at (301) 415-8200.
