Oyster Creek Nuclear Generating Station hosting Community Information Night
Your chance to learn more about the Oyster Creek Generating Station and its history in Ocean County is upon us.
You'll get to see interactive displays and activities, and collect information from Exelon representatives and technical experts on nuclear energy topics including plant operations, decommissioning, emergency preparedness, used fuel storage, safety, security, environmental stewardship and community outreach.
The Oyster Creek Hall of Memories, a museum-like exhibition which celebrates the generating station's history, legacy and impact on the community, will be showcased at the event.
Created by employees themselves, it takes visitors on a walk through the history of the plant with photos, displays, artifacts and other memorabilia.
"For nearly a half-century, the men and women who work at Oyster Creek have been dedicated professionals with a commitment to safe, reliable operations and a great deal of pride in what they do. Events like Community Information Night are a perfect opportunity to show our neighbors that pride and commitment," Tim Moore, Oyster Creek site vice president said. "And our new Hall of Memories is a recognition of every employee who has ever had a role in Oyster Creek excellence."
Light refreshments will be available.
Head to the Oyster Creek Training Center off Route 9 on Intake View Lane, just north of the plant's main entrance in the Forked River section of Lacey Township this coming Monday and check out all the displays and activities.
This annual educational event, runs from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
