Federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission Meeting on Indian Point Held

On Wednesday the Federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission held a meeting on their review of Indian Point Power Plant, following the transformer failure that led to a fire and one of the reactors shutting down. Nearly 400 residents attended the meeting in Westchester where NRC officials stated they determined the power plant was, “operated safely, consistent with its license conditions.” Officials also assured attendees that the investigation has begun that was launched into what caused the electrical equipment to fail and why there was water in the supply room where it was housed. Many residents on Wednesday night raised concerns about the Spectra Pipeline, which was recently approved and was deemed safe by the NRC, many stating that it is too dangerous to put a possibly combustible natural gas pipeline within 2,000 feet of the nuclear plant.
