Lowey Calls For Investigation Into Indian Point Fire

Congresswoman Nita Lowey announced today that she would be calling on the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to conduct an investigation into the cause of the Saturday fire at Indian Point’s Unit 3 which triggered an automatic shutdown and emergency procedures be put in place. Lowey stated that the fire caused “an inadvertent release of radiation,” something originally denied by the company though Spokesman for Entergy Jerry Nappi was unavailable to be reached for comment. Lowey is also demanding the NRC release information explaining why the plant was approved for safety exemptions, specifically fire suppression after a transformer fire from 2007 forced two shutdowns in one week.
