The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is opening its doors to the public to outline recovery efforts at the Fort Calhoun nuclear plant.
The NRC will hold a public meeting with Omaha Public Power District officials on September 24 to discuss the status of the plant north of Omaha.
Those attending will have an opportunity to ask questions on topics related to the NRC’s oversight and inspections at Fort Calhoun. OPPD will provide the current status of actions it has taken to address the items on the restart checklist.
Fort Calhoun entered into the NRC’s increased oversight category in 2011 after it shut down for a refueling outage. The outage was extended due to historic Missouri River flooding followed by an electrical fire and other restart complications.
The upcoming meeting is one in a series the NRC is holding to keep the public informed about OPPD’s efforts to address performance issues.
