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.
