NRC seeks data on running Connecticut reactors in warmer water

Jun 29th, 2013 | By | Category: General

U.S. nuclear regulators asked Dominion Resources for more information about the company’s plan to continue running the Millstone nuclear plant in Connecticut when water in the Long Island Sound is warmer than the plant’s current permit allows.

Dominion in May submitted an application to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) seeking a change in the water intake temperature limit from 75 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit for both Millstone reactors.
