RELEASE : 06-058
Plum Brook Reactor Facility Decommissioning Update Scheduled
The eighth annual Community Information Session (CIS) on the decommissioning of the closed Reactor Facility at NASA Glenn Research Center's Plum Brook Station will take place on Wednesday, October 18, from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Engineering Building at Glenn's Plum Brook Station at 6100 Columbus Avenue in Perkins Township, Ohio.

The information session will provide an informal atmosphere in which to learn about the progress made on the decommissioning over the last year. Members of NASA's Decommissioning Team and the project's Community Workgroup will be on hand to meet community members and answer their questions. Printed information including fact sheets and the latest edition of the Decommissioning Newsletter will be available.

In addition to a series of displays about the decommissioning, there will be information about the other research facilities at Plum Brook and the exciting research that takes place in them.

An important part of NASA's mission is the focus on education, and the CIS presents an excellent educational opportunity for students of all ages and their parents.

The quarterly meeting of the Community Workgroup for the decommissioning of the closed Reactor Facility will precede the CIS at 5:30 p.m. at the same location. The Workgroup 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 Erie County health and public safety professionals and representatives from the educational, environmental and minority communities. The public is welcome to attend this meeting.

Media representatives are invited to both the Community Workgroup Meeting and the CIS.

All attendees must be U.S. citizens, and all visitors age 18 or older must present a driver's license or other valid photo I.D. at the Plum Brook Station security gate in order to attend the event. Visitors without proper identification will not be given access. Vehicles are subject to random search.

Further information about the Decommissioning Project is available via the Decommissioning Information Line at 1-800-260-3838 or the Decommissioning Website at:
