DRESDEN NUCLEAR POWER STATION, UNIT 2: NRC to Hold Open House to Discuss Ginna Nuclear Power Plant 2018 Safety Performance
Dresden Nuclear Power Station, Unit 2 issued the following announcement on July 31.
Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff will discuss the 2018 safety performance of the Ginna
nuclear power plant, operated by Exelon, during an open house on Aug. 6 in Ontario, N.Y.
The open house at the plant’s training center, at 1503 Lake Road, will be held from 4-7 p.m.
It will be conducted in conjunction with the plant’s annual Community Information Night. NRC
staff responsible for inspections, including the resident inspectors assigned to Ginna on a full-time
basis, will be available to discuss the plant’s performance.
Ginna operated safely during 2018. At the end of last year, all inspection findings and
performance indicators for the plant were green, or of very low safety significance. As a result, the
plant will receive the normal level of oversight in 2019, which entails thousands of hours of
inspection each year.
The NRC Reactor Oversight Process uses color-coded inspection findings and indicators to
measure plant performance. The colors start at green and increase to white, yellow or red,
commensurate with the safety significance of the issues involved. Inspection findings or
performance indicators with more than very low safety significance trigger increased NRC
Inspections are performed by two NRC resident inspectors and inspection specialists from
the agency’s Region I Office.
