Feds to Meet With Kansas Nuclear Plant Officials

KSAL StaffSeptember 23, 2014

Federal regulators plan to meet with Wolf Creek nuclear plant officials next month to discuss long-standing design issues with the cooling system at the eastern Kansas facility.

The meeting is scheduled Oct. 2 at the Nuclear Regulatory Commissions’ office in Arlington, Texas. The public will be allowed to ask questions, and can phone in to participate.

The NRC says in a news release that Wolf Creek’s cooling system draws water from Coffey County Lake, pumps it to the plant’s systems for cooling and then returns it to the lake. That water does not contact any radioactive steam or water.

At issue are problems with corrosion and pressure surges in the system’s pipes. Federal regulators want to hear about plans for design modifications.
