Millstone owner Dominion holds public meeting Monday on key issues

Waterford - On Monday the owner of Millstone Power Station will publicly discuss issues affecting the nuclear complex ranging from a proposed tax on power production to environmental monitoring. The meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Waterford Town Hall.

The discussion of Senate Bill 1176 is only part of the presentation that will be made by Dominion officials at the meeting, said Ken Holt, a spokesman.

Also covered will be an overview of Millstone and the nuclear complex's response to problems at the reactors in Japan following the earthquake and tsunami of March 11.

Reactor operations, including the normal refueling outage at the Unit 2 reactor, and environmental monitoring are on the agenda, as is the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's special inspection after an accidental power spike at Unit 2 in February. Company officials will stay to answer questions, Holt said.
