Operators of the Oyster Creek nuclear reactor in Lacey used
inaccurate accounting for several years when figuring out costs for
decommissioning the plant after 2019, according to a report in the Asbury Park Press.
But now but the accounting is back
on track and the plant’s $814,000 decommissioning trust fund is where
it should be, according to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
for the NRC said Monday that they issued a “severity level IV
violation” to plant operator Exelon over decommissioning trust fund
updates the company filed to the federal agency in 2005, 2006, 2007 and
2009 for several plants, including Oyster Creek.
