Editor,

Congratulations are in order for our City Council for their commitment and leadership to pass this important Resolution.
On December 16th, The City of Laguna Beach became the second City in Orange County to pass a Resolution and the first one dealing with the gravity of the problem with San Onofre decommissioning plan to leave the Nuclear Waste.  Edison created the waste and profited from it by increasing dividends for 10 years in a row to their shareholders and plans to leave the waste  with the blessings of the Dept of Energy and the Nuclear Regulatory Agency.

The City of Laguna Woods will consider a Resolution at their City Council meeting january 21st at 2:00 PM

I have attached a photo of the 487 signed letters that I mailed to the NRC today to meet their December 22nd deadline for Public Comment.  Also, I have attached a copy of the letter as well as the cover letter and Resolution that was included in the package.  The letters were collected in just 20 days.  In addition we obtained 383 more signatures on an online petition.  You can view it at www.LetLagunaVote.com   A copy of the letters are available if you would like to view them.

The Resolution that is attached along with the City Staff report will have a couple minor changes such as adding “as soon as possible”  I am waiting to get the official one.  It is being signed by Council.

Thank you for your coverage on San Onofre. Wishing you and your family a happy Holiday season.

  1. I and so many others in Laguna Beach are forever indebted to Audrey Prosser and the good people of Let Laguna Vote for all the hard work they have put in to ensuring SoCal Edison be held accountable for removal of the waste from SONGS. Although victory is not yet won – Thank you all, happy holidays, and a peaceful New Year!

    Sincerely,

    Ari Grayson

  2. It will be years before waste can or will be removed from San Onofre. In the interim, Edison plans to buy inferior thin (5/8″)canisters that are subject to cracking. These canisters cannot be inspected or repaired. Edison has no plans in place to deal with a cracked canister leaking millions of curies of radioactivity into our environment. They have no early warning system, so we’ll only know after the radiation leak. Instead, Edison should buy thick casks (up to 20″ thick). Take action before it’s too late. Go to SanOnofreSafety.org for details and petition. The Laguna Beach resolution needs to more clearly define safe nuclear waste storage. It’s subject to interpretation by Edison due to the general way it is written.
