|WHAT:||Southern California Edison (SCE) will begin shipping the third of four retired steam generator lower assemblies from the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station via truck to a disposal site in Clive, Utah. Safety is the No. 1 priority during the transport, which will pass through San Diego, Riverside and San Bernardino counties before entering Nevada and Utah.|
|The steam generator is approximately 700,000 pounds and will be transported by a special 400-foot-long vehicle. The steam generator contains extremely low levels of radiation. The exposure that a person could receive standing five-to-ten feet away from the transport for an hour would be equivalent to a dental x-ray. The transport will travel by night in California and take approximately three weeks to arrive in Utah.|
|WHEN:||Sunday, Nov. 4, 2012|
|TIME:||9:30 p.m. (Pacific Daylight Time)|
|WHERE:||The San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station|
|Old Pacific Coast Highway|
