The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) reports there were no findings of safety significance from a quarterly inspection of activities at the Crystal River Nuclear Plant, known as CR-3.

The announced inspection was conducted in June and covered a range of activities and procedures.

The process consisted of observations by NRC inspectors, interviews with Duke Energy personnel, reviews of procedures and records and walking through the plant.

The inspectors assessed management oversight of the site’s transition to decommissioning status. They reviewed the CR-3 organization, staffing levels and worker qualifications to ensure safe storage of radioactive materials is not adversely impacted.

The plant was evaluated for readiness in case of adverse weather, including flood and hurricane warnings.

Inspectors also reviewed programs for the safe wet storage of spent nuclear fuel and systems used to support fuel pool cooling. They also observed work activities associated with the processing, packaging, storage and shipment of radioactive waste.
