Del Mar supports investigation of San Onofre nuclear plant

By Claire Harlin

After hearing a detailed explanation from a San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station official about the tubing failure and radiation release that took place in January, as well as nearly a dozen heartfelt pleas from citizens to take a stand on the issue, the Del Mar City Council on Sept. 24 passed a resolution calling for a public Nuclear Regulatory Commission hearing to review the station’s license.

Southern California Edison, which operates the station, needs to go the extra mile to re-establish public confidence, said Councilman Terry Sinnott.

“There is a public confidence issue,” he said. “The public is worried.”

The resolution was adopted with some amendments, however, narrowing the scope of the issue in an effort to make it more effective in obtaining its goal — a transparent investigation.
