Plant owner Entergy Nuclear says there was no release of radioactivity. The company says a controller device failed Monday night in one of four steam generators attached to Indian Point 3.
Backup generators kicked in, but operators reduced power at one Indian Point unit to about 70 percent as a precaution.
The outside of the Indian Point nuclear power plant in Buchanan looks as it always does, calm. On the inside, it’s a different story.
As nuclear plant issues arise in Japan those who live near the Indian Point power plant can’t help but wonder if it could happen here.
The Indian Point nuclear power station was entirely off the grid Friday after a non-radioactive leak forced operators to close the only reactor that was running.
