“Indian Point shuts down for 2nd time in 2 weeks”

“BUCHANAN, N.Y. (AP) — The Indian Point 3 nuclear power plant has been shut down for the second time in less than two weeks.

Plant owner Entergy Nuclear says the reactor turned off automatically at 6:40 a.m. Thursday after water levels rose in a steam generator.

The company says there was no release of radioactivity and no danger to workers or the public. It says the cause of the problem is being investigated.

The reactor is one of two in Buchanan, north of New York City. It also was shut down May 15 because of a problem with a valve in a steam generator. It went back into service the next day.

Entergy is seeking 20-year license extensions for both reactors.”
