Re: Town hall meeting held regarding nuclear waste burial [Village News, 3/9/17]

Your article about the town hall meeting regarding nuclear waste at San Onofre repeats one of the erroneous statements made at the meeting by the Public Watchdog group that storage of the waste will begin on January 13, 2018.
