Nuclear Agency to Discuss Safety of North Anna Plant

April 24, 2012

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has scheduled a public meeting to discuss its annual assessment of the safety performance of Dominion's North Anna nuclear power plant.

Federal regulators are set to hold the meeting next week to answer questions on the safety performance of the plant about 40 miles northwest of Richmond and discuss the NRC's role in ensuring plant operations.

NRC officials say that the plant operated safely in 2011 and is under normal oversight. The NRC, however, says it has not yet finalized the significance of an inspection finding related to the failure of a gasket on one of the plant's emergency diesel generators

The meeting will take place May 1 from 5-7 p.m. at Louisa County Middle School in Mineral.
