Meeting set to discuss Besse reactor-head flaws

PORT CLINTON — A June 3 meeting has been set for the public to hear what federal regulators have learned about the premature aging of Davis-Besse's nuclear reactor head, a massive device which had flaws detected in 24 of the 69 metal nozzles after only six years of operation.

Reactor heads are expected to last decades.

The meeting will be at 6 p.m. in Building 600 of the Camp Perry Lodging & Conference Center, 1000 Lawrence Rd. The camp is west of Port Clinton and east of the plant. Those attending are subject to vehicle checks by Ohio National Guard personnel.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission said a toll-free audio teleconference is being established for those who cannot attend. For details, go to www.nrc.gov or call 1-800-368-5642.
