OMAHA, Neb. (AP) —
Federal regulators will provide another update on the efforts to repair
the troubled Fort Calhoun nuclear power plant.
The power plant,
which sits across from Iowa on the Missouri River about 20 miles north
of Omaha, has been offline for 27 months.
Fort Calhoun initially
shut down for routine maintenance, but significant flooding in 2011, a
small fire and a series of safety violations forced it to remain closed.
Regulatory Commission spokeswoman Lara Uselding says Fort Calhoun is
making progress, but the Omaha Public Power District still has to
address 15 items on the restart checklist.
Regulators must sign off before the plant can restart.
The meeting will be held from 6-9 p.m. on Wednesday at the Ramada Plaza Hotel near 72nd Street and Interstate 80 in Omaha.
