TOWN OF CARLTON - A public meeting has been set to discuss the future of the shuttered nuclear power plant in Kewaunee.
The federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission called the meeting. The NRC says representatives of Dominion Energy Kewaunee, which owns the Kewaunee Power Station, will also attend. NRC staff members plan to present the results of the plant's 2012 annual assessment, along with the plan for transitioning to the decommissioning phase.
The NRC says the Kewaunee plant operated safely overall in 2012; however, at the end of the year, the agency says it found one apparent violation in the area of emergency preparedness that had not been resolved.
The Kewaunee Power Station shut down last month. After being unable to find a buyer for the plant, company leaders cited low energy prices in the Midwest and the plant's isolation from other plants as factors in the closure. The closure put more than 600 people out of work.
The meeting is set for 7-9 p.m. June 25 at the Carlton town hall, N1296 Town Hall Road.
