NRC raises concerns about Dresden flood plan
[link to www.equities.com]


The plant was built at 517 feet above sea level, or 10 feet above historic flood levels. But updated modeling indicates the worst-case flood could 528 feet above sea level.

There has never been a flood that high. But with changing weather patterns, Mitlyng said, "events have been taking place ... beyond what we expect or what has been known."

The Dresden reactors were licensed in 1966 and are among the oldest in the U.S. They surpassed their original 40-year lifespans and have been granted 20-year license extensions.

Exelon operates all 11 nuclear power reactors in Illinois. Dresden is the only one for which the NRC raised flooding concerns, Mitlyng said.
