NRC Proposes No Safety Threat Finding With San Onofre

Edison International’s request for a license amendment for a proposed restart of its crippled California nuclear reactor doesn’t pose significant safety risks, federal regulators said in a preliminary finding.

Edison’s request to operate its San Onofre reactor at reduced power does not involve an increased risk of an accident or create the possibility of a new or different accident from those previously evaluated for its license, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission said in an e-mailed document.
