NRC Cites Callaway Nuke Plant

FULTON, Mo. (AP) — The Nuclear Regulatory Commission says an inspection of central Missouri’s Callaway power plant found two problems of what it calls “very low” safety significance.

The inspection of the nuclear plant operated by St. Louis-based Ameren took place in September. Results were released Thursday.

The NRC says one problem involved a motor-operated valve that failed after maintenance procedures were not followed. Inspectors also cited an incorrect setting for the breakers for an alternate emergency power supply.

The nuclear plant is located near Fulton in Callaway County.
