Very Urgent! Shut Diablo Canyon Nuke Opportunity!! Tuesday, 11/18: State Water Board Hearing, Cal/EPA Building, 1001 I Street, Sacto Arrive before 1 pm to sign up to speak on Agenda Item 12 – Cooling Towers at Diablo Canyon. * From the World Business Academy, Safe Energy Project, Santa Barbara: PG&E must stop killing sea life - either build cooling towers or SHUT DOWN DIABLO CANYON! PG&E has requested that the California State Water Resources Board (Water Board) allow them an unprecedented exemption for their lack of cooling towers at the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant. Basically, they're saying the towers would be too expensive to build. But independent experts (along with the California Energy Commission and the California Public Utilities Commission) have concluded that this is not so, and that cooling towers can and should be built. (For more info, click here). Please let the Water Board know how you feel about all that hot water cooking the bay. Diablo Canyon’s antiquated OTC system draws in about 2.5 billion gallons of water a day and discharges hot water back into the ocean, killing more than one billion young fish and other species annually. The power plant is responsible for nearly 80% of all OTC ocean water withdrawals in California. Don’t let PG&E gut the state’s water and marine protection policy.

Also reply to cynthia_papermaster@yahoo.com if you want to receive the Water Board Agenda, a Background Info Sheet on Diablo Canyon OTC, and a letter to the Water Board signed by several organizations, including the World Business Academy, Friends Of the Earth and Sierra Club.
