Ginna Power Plant http://wrvo.org en Potential flood risk causes citation at upstate nuclear plant http://wrvo.org/post/potential-flood-risk-causes-citation-upstate-nuclear-plant <p></p><p>The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has issued a citation to the owners of the&nbsp;Ginna&nbsp;nuclear power plant in upstate New York. Preliminary inspection findings released Tuesday cited the plant for failure to address a long-standing flood risk. The issue is considered a low-to-moderate level safety concern.</p><p>It all comes down to an improperly sealed manhole at the plant, which could have allowed flood waters to breach the rooms housing emergency batteries.</p> Wed, 19 Feb 2014 13:19:00 +0000 Kate O'Connell 51569 at http://wrvo.org Potential flood risk causes citation at upstate nuclear plant
