The Department of Environmental Protection is announcing the postponement of an Oyster Creek Safety Advisory Panel public meeting scheduled for Monday, Nov. 5, due to Hurricane Sandy.
The meeting, which was to take place at the Ocean County Administration Building in Toms River, will be rescheduled at a later date.
The Oyster Creek Safety Advisory Panel was created to assist the DEP with the evaluation of the continued safe operation, decommissioning planning and cessation of operations at the Oyster Creek Nuclear Generating Station in the Forked River section of Lacey Township.
The Panel, which consists of DEP Commissioner Bob Martin, Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness Director Edward Dickson and independent consultant Dr. Adam Cohen, is seeking public input relating to the continued safe operation and closure of Oyster Creek by December 31, 2019.
