The meeting will be open to the public. It will be held at 9am July 27 at the Doubletree Hotel, 1616 Dodge St. The subject of the meeting will be post-flooding recovery actions at the plant, 19 miles north of Omaha.

Fort Calhoun was already shut down when Missouri River flooding began late in the spring. It remains in a safe mode under an Unusual Event, which was declared June 6 because of the rising river.

Members of the NRC staff will also be available to answer questions from the public after the business portion of the meeting.

In June, Gregory Jaczko, chairman of the NRC, toured Fort Calhoun and the Cooper Nuclear Station in southeastern Nebraska. Cooper is operated by NPPD. He reviewed anti-flooding efforts at both plants.
