The NRC will hold the meetings to consider an early site permit for a potential SMR in Oak Ridge at the Pollard Technology Conference Center, 210 Badger Ave., in Oak Ridge from 2-4 p.m. and from 7-9 p.m on April 12. The NRC said its staff will describe the overall site review process, which includes safety and environmental assessments, as well as the public's opportunities to participate. The NRC will host open houses an hour before each meeting so members of the public have the opportunity to talk informally with agency staff.
