Panel to discuss Vermont Yankee closure

Posted: Updated:

BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont State Nuclear Advisory Panel is meeting next week to discuss topics related to the closure of Vermont's only nuclear power plant.

Plant owner Entergy Nuclear announced in August that it will shut down Vermont Yankee at the end of next year.

The panel plans to meet in Brattleboro on Wednesday night to discuss license termination issues and impacts on staff operations, emergency planning and environmental surveillance. It also plans to talk about state oversight during the decommissioning of the plant.

The public is invited to attend.

The meeting takes place from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Brattleboro Union High School.
