The Diablo Canyon Decommissioning Engagement Panel meeting this week will no longer be open to the public.

Due to the current circumstances surrounding the coronavirus, the panel will conduct the meeting via electronic broadcast.

The County of San Luis Obispo and the California Coastal Commission will present on the permitting process of land related to the future decommissioning of the power plant.

The California Public Utilities Commission has recently adopted a new policy called the Tribal Land Transfer Policy and will discuss just how this new policy is applicable to the lands surrounding Diablo Canyon.

According to the California Public Utilities Commission, the policy provides Native American Tribes the opportunity to regain corruptly lost lands in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

The meeting will also include updates from PG&E on its bankruptcy proceedings, the status of the 2018 Nuclear Decommissioning Cost Triennial Proceeding (NDCTP) settlement and the Request for Proposal (RFP) process related to the potential selection of a new spent fuel storage system.

The live stream will go from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Those interested in viewing can visit https://diablocanyonpanel.org/ [diablocanyonpanel.org] or www.pge.com/engagementpanel [pge.com].

Viewers will be able to submit comments and ask questions using the online comment form on the Panel's website during the meeting.
