Nuclear Regulator: No Danger at Flooded Nebraska Plant

Water from the Missouri River that normally aids in cooling the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station has now become its worst enemy, as a levee helping to protect electrical transformers at the Nebraska facility has collapsed, forcing workers to switch to emergency generators.

Flood waters reached containment buildings and transformers Sunday, forcing the shutdown of electrical power at the plant.

Although the plant has been shut down since April, Gregory Jaczsko, the head of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, is now Nebraska to see for himself but insisting that there is no danger.
"Mother nature takes care of the floods, so we have to do the best we can to make sure we're prepared, and all the plants in the U.S. have been designed to deal with historically the largest possible floods," Jaczsko said.

- If 'designed to deal with' means artificial berms and sandbags, this statement is correct. I highly suspect these types of blanket statements. NRC is not always so forthright...or correct.
