Southern California Edison (SCE):

             Southern California Edison (SCE) is about to begin shipping the
             last of four retired steam generator lower assemblies from the
             San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station via truck to a disposal
WHAT:     site in Clive, Utah. As at the plant, safety is the No. 1
             priority during the transport, which will safely 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-10 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:        Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2012
TIME:        9:30 p.m. (Pacific Standard Time)
WHERE:       The San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station, Old Pacific Coast
