Assessment finds Wolf Creek operated safely

Wolf Creek

Federal regulators say the Wolf Creek nuclear power plant near Burlington is operating safely except for its oversight of contractors.   The Nuclear Regulatory Commission said in a news release Thursday it will discuss its findings in a public meeting at 7 p.m. April 18 in New Strawn.  Overall, the NRC found Wolf Creek operated safely last year.  But inspectors found the plant’s workers didn’t provide adequate oversight for work that could affect safety-related equipment. The plant also has recurring problems with its emergency diesel generators.  The release says on a scale of one, Wolf Creek is a three. The agency plans to conduct future inspections to on corrective actions.
