Keathley University Center
MTSU Campus Murfreesboro, TN
Know Nuclear in the TN Valley is an opportunity for community leaders, environmental advocates, public officials, and concerned citizens to learn more about nuclear waste and the nuclear industry in Tennessee. Registration for the half-day seminar begins 11:30am and the program begins at noon, Saturday September 27. It will be held in Room 322 of Keathley University Center on the MTSU campus in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. A $10 registration fee payable at the door covers the cost of refreshments and seminar handouts. Students with student ID cards are free.
Three panels will cover TN nuclear waste processing, burning, and dumping in TN; the storage and transport of high level nuclear waste generated in our state; and the concerns for TVA's current nuclear power program across the TN Valley. Panelists are local, regional, and national activists. The purpose of Know Nuclear in the TN Valley is to inform concerned citizens about the need to stop generating nuclear wastes and the need to responsibly manage the nuclear wastes we already have.
