NRC Reviews Oyster Creek After Sandy

Three Nuclear Regulatory Commission inspectors are in Ocean County taking a closer look at the nation’s oldest nuclear power plant.

Oyster Creek Nuclear Power Plant (Exelon Corp)

The Oyster Creek plant in Lacey Township issued an alert during Superstorm Sandy when water rose outside the plant, threatening cooling equipment. An alert is the second-lowest designation in a four-tiered warning system.

The reactor was out of service at the time for refueling and maintenance.

NRC Region I administrator Bill Dean said in a statement there are certain observations involving procedures and onsite activities that warrant a closer look.
