Duke Energy has asked the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) for approval to keep the Oconee
Nuclear Station operating until 2053. What has Duke Energy done to ensure continued public safety at a
nuclear facility that might be operated for 80 years? The integrity of the Jocassee Dam is a real concern.
Representatives from Beyond Nuclear, Nuclear Watch South, and the Sierra Club will provide evidence
that Duke Energy has both failed to ensure the safety of the Oconee Nuclear Site because of the
possibility of Jocassee Dam failure, and their unwillingness to properly protect the three nuclear
reactors in an unlikely, but possible Jocassee Dam breach.

Sat, March 12, 2022, 1:30 pm, Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) @ Clemson.  Linda and Paul
Gunter from Beyond Nuclear will be presenting. A virtual option will be announced at a later date.
