Advisory for Thursday, Nov. 1: Third Shipment of Original Steam Generator to
Utah to Begin
-- November 03, 2012
Southern California Edison:
Southern California Edison (SCE) will begin shipping the third of
four retired steam generator lower assemblies from the San Onofre
WHAT: Nuclear Generating Station via truck to a disposal site in Clive,
Utah. Safety is the No. 1 priority during the transport, which will
pass through San Diego, Riverside and San Bernardino counties before
entering Nevada and Utah.
The steam generator is approximately 700,000 pounds and will be
transported by a special 400-foot-long vehicle. The steam generator
contains extremely low levels of radiation. The exposure that a
person could receive standing five-to-ten feet away from the
transport for an hour would be equivalent to a dental x-ray. The
transport will travel by night in California and take approximately
three weeks to arrive in Utah.
WHEN: Sunday, Nov. 4, 2012
TIME: 9:30 p.m. (Pacific Daylight Time)
WHERE: The San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station
Old Pacific Coast Highway
