Regulators to Offer Update on Fort Calhoun Nuclear Plant

Posted: Updated:

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — The public will have another chance to learn more about the status of the troubled Fort Calhoun nuclear power plant later this month.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission will hold another meeting on about the idle plant on Sept. 24.

Fort Calhoun, which sits across from Iowa on the Missouri River about 20 miles north of Omaha, has been offline since April 2011.

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.

Regulators will provide an update on Omaha Public Power District's efforts to repair Fort Calhoun.

The meeting will be held from 6-9 p.m. on Sept. 24 at the Comfort Inn and Suites near 72nd Street and Interstate 80 in Omaha.
