NRC to host public meeting on Limerick Nuclear Power Plant's safety performance

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) announced on Wednesday that it will hold a public open house meeting on May 21 in Limerick, Pennsylvania, about the Limerick Nuclear Power Plant’s safety performance.

The end of 2014 saw the plant, which is owned by Exelon Generation Co. LLC, require additional oversight due to inspection findings and performance indicators pushing it into the “greater-than-green” category of the NRC’s color-coded scale of plant performance.

After a review by an NRC supplemental team, which determined Exelon took the appropriate corrective actions, the NRC returned the plant to standard level of oversight beginning in 2015’s second quarter.

“We sought to independently verify that the company fully understood the root causes of the issue and had taken appropriate steps to correct them," NRC Region I Administrator Dan Dorman said. "Our inspection confirmed that had occurred. With respect to our annual assessment of the plant’s safety performance, it serves to help us focus our inspection resources on those areas where attention is most needed.”

The open house will allow the general public to engage NRC inspectors and will take place at the Limerick Township Municipal Building.
