NRC Increases Oversight of Three U.S. Nuclear Power Plants

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission increased oversight of three U.S. nuclear power plants, in Kansas, Nebraska and South Carolina, as part of a regular safety review.

The regulator found that the plants “required significant additional oversight, but continue to operate safely,” said Scott Burnell, a commission spokesman. Chairman Gregory Jaczko told a House panel today that the plants are operating safely.

The plants are Fort Calhoun Nuclear Generating Station near Omaha, Nebraska, the Robinson Nuclear Plant in Hartsville, South Carolina, and Wolf Creek nuclear plant in Burlington, Kansas. Three unidentified reactors targeted for stepped up oversight were removed from the NRC list.

Power plants warrant additional oversight when safety issues identified by the regulator haven’t been resolved within a reasonable amount of time or if the underlying issue is of “somewhat higher significance,” the NRC said in a news release.
