Gov't gives Indian Point officials 'must-fix' list
Federal regulators have given officials at the Indian Point nuclear power plant in Buchanan a list of repairs that must be made to the facility as a result of their nationwide inspection of nuclear power stations in the wake of the recent disaster at Japan's Fukushima reactor.
After reviewing the plant, inspectors concluded that the hydrogen containment systems at Reactor #2 are not being tested as often as they should be. At Reactor #3, regulators found that there is not enough firefighting equipment as there should be.
Some 104 nuclear reactors were assessed in the nationwide review. Federal regulators will be monitoring how the owners and operators of the plants, in this case Entergy, will be fixing their shortcomings.
