21st Annual Report, Volume II, Exhibit B7, Notice of Plant Tour and Public Meeting on June 22, 2011

The Diablo Canyon Independent Safety Committee Notice of Plant Tour and Public Meeting

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that on June 22, 2011, at 8:00 A.M., the members of the Diablo Canyon Independent Safety Committee (DCISC) will conduct an inspection tour of certain accessible areas of the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant (DCPP). This tour, which will take approximately three and one half hours, was previously advertised to the public. Because the plant is an operating nuclear power plant the number of participants was limited and space has been assigned on the basis of prior reservation taken on a first-come, first-served basis, with priority given to those persons who were not accommodated on recent DCISC inspection tours. Prior clearance of all public attendees is required in compliance with rules of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).

In the alternative, if security considerations preclude the public tour on June 22nd, the DCISC may convene an informal question and answer session at the Pacific Gas and Electric Company “PG&E” Energy Education Center (formerly known as the PG&E Community Center), 6588 Ontario Road, San Luis Obispo.
