NRC plans meeting on Davis-Besse

OAK HARBOR, Ohio - The Nuclear Regulatory Commission's Davis-Besse oversight panel will meet Tuesday for the first time since Dec. 6.

The meeting will be from 2 to 5 p.m. in the plant's administration building, 5501 North State Rt. 2. The forum, held monthly until recently, provides area residents an update of plant inspections.

The oversight panel was formed weeks after Davis-Besse's old reactor head was found to be so badly corroded in 2002 that it nearly blew apart. FirstEnergy replaced the massive steel lid with a nearly identical head built in the 1970s for a nuclear plant in Midland, Mich., that was never finished.

The federal regulatory agency allowed Davis-Besse to resume operation 11 months ago following a two-year shutdown related to that issue and numerous others.
