Three U.S. nuclear power plants need increased oversight from federal regulators because of safety problems or unplanned shutdowns, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission said Thursday, although officials said all are operating safely.

NRC Chairman Gregory Jaczko said the three plants in South Carolina, Kansas and Nebraska "are the plants we are most concerned about" among the 65 U.S. nuclear power plants in 31 states.

Jaczko did not identify the plants, but an agency spokesman said they are the H.B. Robinson nuclear plant in South Carolina, Fort Calhoun in Nebraska and Wolf Creek in Kansas.

Since Fuku brought the focus out of the dark ages...I wonder how much shit has gone on we have no clue about?

Catch Arnie's discussion to some group of people on youtube?

The thing I most took away from it was his discussion the emergency backup generators.

At Fukushima.. the generators were put in a shitty place... however, the biggest problem was that the pumps to provide coolant for the generators were down at the shore to pull in water to cool the generators. So even if the generators hadn't been inundated, the coolant pumps for them were destroyed so they were useless either way.

The situation is the same for the U.S. nuke plants... pumps have to be placed at the water source because, well, that's where the water is.... so with Ft Calhoun, the same situation exists. If the coolant pumps to the generators are breached, the generators die...

I had never considered this concept myself before Arnie mentioned it..
