NRC to discuss oversight of California San Onofre nuclear units

(Reuters) - The Nuclear Regulatory Commission said it will hold a public meeting in October to discuss the status of its oversight of the two-unit San Onofre nuclear plant in California.

The nuclear regulator will hold the meeting on October 9 to respond to questions about tube degradation issues at the plant, it said in a statement on Thursday.

The 2,150-megawatt San Onofre nuclear station operated by Edison's Southern California Edison utility has been shut since January after the discovery of premature tube wear in the giant steam generators.
