The Honorable Allison Macfarlane
Chairwoman
U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission 
Washington, D.C.  2055-0001 

RE:   San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) and public safety concerns 

Dear Chairwoman Macfarlane: 

The City of Encinitas wishes to express its desire that a complete evaluation and elimination of 
any potential risks posed by leakage of nuclear contaminated materials are fully addressed at 
the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS).  Encinitas is coastal city located 25 
miles south from the SONGS facility.  Any potential incident causing significant radiation 
leakage or contamination from the facility would have severe impact on the Southern 
California population and potentially cause serious environmental damage.   
Recent evaluations of the SONGS facility have identified several issues regarding the design 
and operation of mechanical equipment and various operational safety issues have been 
identified over the years which are causes for serious concern.  The Southern California area is 
in a seismically active area.  The consequences on the Fukushime-Dalichi Nuclear Generating 
Station from the earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan in March 2011 are sobering 
reminders of the vulnerabilities and consequences of facilities in earthquake prone areas.

One of the primary responsibilities of government is public safety and welfare of it citizens.  It 
is of the utmost importance that all measures be taken to assure the complete and total safety of 
the SONGS facility, both mechanically and operationally, before any consideration is given to 
permitting reactivation, up to and including consideration of deactivation of the facility.
