NRC to Conduct Open House May 21 in Limerick, Pa., to Discuss 2014 Performance of Limerick Nuclear Power Plant
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission will hold a public open house on May 21 in Limerick, Pa., to discuss the agency’s annual review of safety performance at the Limerick nuclear power plant.
NRC staff will be on hand from 5-6:30 p.m. at the Limerick Township Municipal Building, located at 646 W. Ridge Pike. Agency employees responsible for inspections of the plant, including the Resident Inspectors based at the Limerick (Montgomery County), Pa., site on a full-time basis, will be available to discuss the facility’s performance in 2014 and the agency’s oversight plans for 2015.
Under the NRC’s Reactor Oversight Process, the agency gauges plant performance through the use of color-coded inspection findings and performance indicators, which are statistical measurements of plant performance that can trigger additional oversight if exceeded.

Three Mile Island Generating Station
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Three Mile Island Offline for Electrical System Repairs
LONDONDERRY TWP, PA. (May 6, 2015) – Operators removed Three Mile Island Unit 1 from service earlier today to repair an electrical component that powers one of the unit’s control rods. This repair cannot be performed while the plant is generating electricity.
During the course of shutting down the plant, a valve opened allowing steam to be released to the atmosphere. The steam release was audible to nearby residents.
Three Mile Island Generating Station is located approximately 12 miles south of Harrisburg. The plant generates enough carbon-free electricity for 800,000 homes.
NRC Response to Concerns in March 16, 2015, E-Mail From the Alliance for a Clean Environment Regarding Limerick Generating Station, Units 1 and 2.
Major civil construction work has been completed for an underground dry used fuel storage facility at Ameren's Callaway nuclear power plant in Missouri. The first canisters containing used fuel are scheduled to be put in place in July, Holtec International said.
