USA Alert: Nebraska Nuclear Power Plants Missouri River Flood Conditions

17/06/2011 § Leave a comment

The Fort Calhoun nuclear power plant (REP reactor) in Fort Calhoun, Nebraska, currently shut down for refueling, is surrounded by flood waters from the Missouri River, Tuesday, June 14, 2011. On Tuesday, the releases at Gavins Point Dam in South Dakota hit the maximum planned amount of 150,000 cubic feet of water per second, which are expected to raise the Missouri River 5 to 7 feet above flood stage in most of Nebraska and Iowa.

Due to a fire in an electrical switchgear room at FCS on the morning of June 7, the plant temporarily lost power to a pump that cools the spent-fuel pool.
