WATERFORD, Conn. (AP) — A citizens’ panel that oversees safety issues at Millstone Power Station has closely questioned representatives of the nuclear plant about whether three recent federal inspections signal a problem.
The Day of New London reports that Bill Sheehan, chairman of the Nuclear Energy Advisory Council, asked representatives of Millstone owner Dominion Resources Inc. at town hall on Wednesday if the plant is looking to see if alertness is a problem.
Millstone representatives made their annual presentation to the council.
The plant was subject to an NRC inspections after an unplanned shutdown of both operating plants, a backup safety pump at Unit 3 and a different problem with the same pump.
Lori Armstrong, director of nuclear safety and licensing at Millstone, said 80 Millstone staff have participated in training to improve troubleshooting.
