Fort Calhoun safety meeting set for April 16th
(NET Radio) - Federal regulators and Omaha Public Power District officials plan to discuss safety problems at the utility's Fort Calhoun nuclear power plant. According to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, a water valve that was improperly installed on May 11th, 2005 was not discovered for 454 days. The system sprays water in the reactor building to reduce pressure during some accidents. The N-R-C rated the mistake as a low to moderate safety problem, and says the appropriate corrective actions have been taken. NRC staff and O-P-P-D officials are set to meet Monday at 1 pm at the Nuclear Regulatory Committee's regional office in Arlington, Texas. Members of the public who want to ask questions may use a telephone bridge.

To join the telephone bridge call (800) 952-9677 a little before 1 pm on Monday, April 16th.
