Decommission San Onofre

The Nukes at San Onofre are mirror images of each another. To shutdown one, and startup the other, is suicidal.

    I approve of this message!
    The NRC is wasting valuable time and money enabling SCE attempt to justify restarting their already damaged Unit 2 in a test mode to see what happens, instead of telling them to replace its defective poorly designed replacement steam generators!

    This matter will not be “swept under the rug” since the safety of about 8 million people hangs in the balance of this 1.3 Billion Dollars debacle!

    Note: The NRC just assessed San Onofre 2 & 3 “as needing to resolve one or two items of low safety significance,” WHICH IS A BAD NUCLEAR JOKE, considering Unit 3 has failed and can’t be operated!

    San Onofre Unit 2 and Unit 3 have given the NRC (and the nuclear industry) a pair of BLACK EYES!

    It is time for the NRC to restrict any restart discussion until every allegation has been answered completely and all 9,737 tubes of each steam generator have been inspected visually, using the most modern techniques for both external and internal fatigue/wear damage, which has not been done to date, instead SCE has used Bobbin-coil inspection methodology which is not as effective.

    To help readers learn more about how Steam Generators (SG) can “fail” here is a link to an amazing accurate animation that was done to illustrate San Onofre’s Replacement Steam Generators (RSG) problems (which included MULTIPLE SG tube failures) and the animation even illustrates a Main Steam Line Break (MSLB):
Note: By scrolling over the animation a large number of additional animations can be viewed!
