The Community Workgroup for the decommissioning of the closed Reactor Facility at NASA Glenn Research Center's Plum Brook Station will meet on Tuesday, July 13, from 7-9 p.m. at the Huron Public Library, 333 Williams Street, in Huron, Ohio. The public has been invited to attend this meeting.
These quarterly meetings provide NASA a vehicle for disseminating information on the decommissioning process to the members of the Workgroup and the community. The Workgroup consists of local area residents, including health and public safety professionals as well as members of Erie County's educational, environmental and minority communities. The meeting also provides an opportunity for the public to raise questions and concerns.
On Wednesday, July 14, the public is invited to view a documentary on the Plum Brook Station Reactor Facility entitled "From Ashes to Atoms." This premier showing will take place at the Sandusky State Theater at 7 p.m.
The documentary traces the history of the Reactor Facility as experienced through the eyes and words of several NASA retirees and community members who worked at the facility or lived in the area. It also looks back at the rich history of the land, including the acquisition of the land by the Army and its use as an ordnance facility during WWII prior to NASA purchasing the land for Plum Brook Station, which continues to be home to four active research facilities.
Media representatives interested in attending the meeting and/or the documentary premier or obtaining additional information about the decommissioning project can contact Sally Harrington at 216-433-2037 or the Media Relations Office at 216-433-2901.
Information on the decommissioning project can also be obtained by calling the 24-hour, toll-free Decommissioning Information Line at 1-800-260-3838 or on the Web at: http://www.grc.nasa.gov/WWW/pbrf
