NRC: Workers' error caused shutdown of NY reactor

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — Federal regulators say an error by maintenance workers caused this week's shutdown of a reactor at the Indian Point nuclear plant north of New York City.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission says workers left valves open that drained water from a tank at the plant in Buchanan. That caused the shutdown of two pumps that send water to a steam generator. Control room operators then shut down the reactor Wednesday afternoon.

There was no release of radioactivity.
