According to regulators the idle Fort Calhoun
nuclear plant is making good progress toward restarting for the first time in
more than two years.
However, there are still some
significant issues that remain unresolved.
Fort Calhoun initially shut down for
routine maintenance but significant flooding in 2011 along with a small fire
and a series of safety violations forced it to remain closed.
The nuclear regulatory commission said
Fort Calhoun has resolved about 70-percent of the items that must be dealt with
before the plant will be allowed to restart.
