The federal agency initially rejected a request for a second meeting in Idaho to take public comment on the project.
The Snake River Alliance and other officials sought a second public meeting as a means for broadening public input on the agency’s environmental impact statement.
The Snake River Alliance opposes Areva’s $4 billion Eagle Rock plant, saying the nuclear facility could have a profound impact on the state and region.
The company intends to produce fuel for nuclear reactors at the facility.
The NRC is hosting the Boise public meeting Aug. 9, then a second in Idaho Falls Aug. 12.
