NRC to discuss Nine Mile Point's nuclear safety record at April 28 open house

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is hosting an open house April 28 in Oswego, New York, to review the 2014 safety performance of Exelon’s Nine Mile Point nuclear power plant.

The two-unit plant is located in Scriba. The open house is scheduled from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. on the campus of the State University of New York in Oswego. The meeting will be held in the auditorium -- Room 132 -- of the Marana Campus Center, at 7060 New York 104. NRC staff will be available to talk about the plant’s 2014 performance and the agency’s 2015 oversight plans for the facility.

According to the NRC, the plant operated safely in 2014.

“By assessing each plant’s performance in a comprehensive manner, we are able to focus our inspection resources on those areas most in need of attention,” NRC Region I Administrator Dan Dorman said. “Because Nine Mile Point did not have any safety or security issues rising above very low significance in 2014, we are not currently planning any inspections above and beyond our normal reviews.

The NRC’s annual assessment letter and the most current performance information for the plant are available on the agency’s website, www.nrc.gov.
