Town Hall: San Onofre And Our Future says
On April 14 at 2 pm, Superior Court Judge Judith Hayes will hear the Citizens' Oversight vs. Coastal Commission lawsuit which seeks to prohibit the burial of 3.6 million pounds of radioactive
nuclear waste from the decommissioned San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) in a privately owned nuclear waste dump at San Onofre State Beach Park.

It will be argued that the permit to bury the waste (between the Coastal Commission and Southern California Edison) was issued unlawfully and should be revoked. If this is allowed, within 50 miles of 8.4 million residents, nuclear waste that is deadly to humans for 250,000 years will be buried in delicate thin-walled steel canisters with a warranty of only 25 years and a design life of only 60 years.

Come learn more about this important issue!
