NRC To Hold Annual Meeting On Indian Point Safety

Jun 21, 2018

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission Thursday night is holding its annual meeting on the safety performance of New York’s Indian Point nuclear power plant.

NRC staff responsible for plant inspections will be available to discuss the performance of Indian Point 2 and 3, which are slated to close by 2020 and 2021, respectively. The NRC says both reactors operated safely in 2017, and all inspection findings and performance indicators for the plant were green, or of very low safety significance, as outlined in a February report. The public meeting begins at 7 p.m. at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Tarrytown in Westchester County. Meantime the state’s Indian Point Closure Task Force is looking at anticipated impacts of the plant’s closure.
