Dresden Nuclear Power Station, Unit 2 issued the following announcement on Dec. 14.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission has selected
Phillip Smagacz as the new resident inspector at the Braidwood nuclear
power plant. The dual-unit plant is located in Braceville, Ill., approximately
20 miles southwest of Joliet and is operated by Exelon Generation Co.
Smagacz joined the NRC in 2008 as a reactor engineer in Region III.
He has also served as the NRC resident inspector at the Fermi nuclear power
plant. Smagacz holds a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in nuclear
engineering from Purdue University.

inspectors who monitor day-to-day operations. Smagacz will join NRC senior resident inspector
Dan Kimble at the Braidwood facility. They will serve as the agency’s eyes and ears at the facility,
conducting inspections and monitoring significant work projects.
