NRC wants nuclear plant operators to reevaluate plant safety procedures

By

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is reviewing specific recommendations from an appointed advisory panel to keep a close eye on all nuclear plants and their safety procedures. This move comes after the Japanese nuclear plant disaster earlier this year. Progress Energy Spokeswoman Jessica Lambert says the panel will meet with the NRC later this month and will delegate specific tasks to each plant in the nation to strengthen nuclear plant safety. Lambert adds the NRC has kept up with safety concerns and is closely monitoring plants such as the Crystal River Nuclear Facility in Citrus County.
