The effort to place a Spent Nuclear Fuel Storage Facility in Lea County continues. The public comment deadline for the draft Environmental Impact Statement has been extended to July 20, 2020.
A national webinar and five public meetings in New Mexico during the public comment period to present the staff’s preliminary findings and receive public comments are planned. As the COVID-19 public health emergency evolves, the NRC staff will continue to re-evaluate these plans for engaging the public and will consider additional extensions to the comment period.
