Safety Meeting

OREPA will host an important public meeting on safety issues at the new bomb plant proposed for Oak Ridge. Even after the half-billion-dollar design fiasco at the Uranium Processing Facility, the government continues to cut corners on safety to save money. The potential impacts on people living within 25 miles of Oak Ridge are monstrous.


This meeting, on Sunday, December 8 at Church of the Savior on Weisgarber Rd in Knoxville will look at documented safety issues. We will begin at 6:30pm with a potluck dinner; the meeting will begin at 7:00pm.


Two days later, on Tuesday, December 10, the Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board will hold a public meeting in Knoxville at the Convention Center beginning at 8:00am and lasting until 6:00pm.


Sunday Vigil at Y-12 in Oak Ridge Tennessee

Sunday Vigil

The OREPA Board has now decided that we are prepared to do a limited re-opening of the Sunday vigil to allow for slightly more participation.  We are asking anyone who wants to attend a Sunday vigil to sign up in advance—by the Thursday before. There are two ways to sign up. You can email Ralph at or you can call him at 865 776 5050. If the five slots are already taken, we’ll ask you to wait until next week. All vigilers are expected to wear masks. Bring your own chair. Avoid physical contact and maintain an appropriate social distance in the circle of chairs. Of course, if for any reason you feel you may have been exposed to the virus or to someone with the virus, you should not attend the vigil. At this point, we are not resuming our monthly potlucks.
