NRC holding open house to discuss Catawba Nuclear

Catawba Nuclear Station

ROCK HILL, S.C. — Federal regulators are scheduled to discuss their recent assessment of a nuclear power plant in South Carolina.

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission is holding an open house on Wednesday at Rock Hill City Hall on its evaluation of the Catawba Nuclear Station in York County.

The agency says staffers will be on hand to answer questions about safety at the Duke Energy facility and give updates on NRC oversight and inspections.

Overall last year, the NRC says Catawba operated in a manner that preserved public health and safety and protected the environment.
