Oral history Interview with Richard Pierre Oubre
The Rancho Seco oral histories document the story of the, now closed, Rancho Seco Nuclear Power Plant located in Ione, California. The oral histories present a broad range of perspectives and attitudes. Issues included plant safety; environmental concerns; down time due to technical problems resulting in increased cost to SMUD users; organizational structure and relationship of managers, staff and contractors; closed board meetings; and plant operations that were eventually closed down by voters. Richard Pierre Oubre was a SMUD worker who held various positions over time at the Rancho Seco station as Assistant Superintendent of Nuclear Plant, Superintendent of Nuclear Plant, Nuclear Operations Department Manager, Project Manager and Assistant to Assistant General Manager for Planning, Programming and Financial and eventually as Acting Assistant General Manager for Engineering.
