An update on San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS)

Surfrider is concerned about the apparent lack of transparency leading to this issue. SCE knowingly received modified Holtec canisters, different than the original proposed design used for spent fuel on site, without adequately sharing this information with the public. This, after pushing the importance of using a standardized dry storage system in their reasoning for moving forward with the Holtec canister in the first place. Additionally, SCE found the first faulty shim pin in February, notified Holtec who found several of their canisters had the same issue in other locations, but SCE didn't make a public announcement of this potential issue until late March. Understanding that an initial internal safety assessment and investigation is necessary before sharing information on issues pubically, it would be preferred that the public is notified as soon as possible.
