January 05, 2012|By Timothy B. Wheeler, The Baltimore Sun

Federal regulators plan a hearing Jan. 26 on a challenge to a French company's bid to build a third reactor at the Calvert Cliffs nuclear power plant, and will take public comments the day before.

The Atomic Safety and Licensing Board will air contentions by four anti-nuclear groups that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff has not adequately weighed alternatives to building the facility. The hearing begins at 9:30 a.m. in the Albright Building, 205 Main St. in Prince Frederick.

Two separate sessions for the public to comment on UniStar's application will be held at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. Jan. 25 at the Calvert Marine Museum 14150 Solomons Island Road in Solomons. Pre-registration is required to speak there. For details, see
