NRC to discuss Unit 1 reactor restart at Browns Ferry

Nuclear Regulatory Commission officials will meet with Tennessee Valley Authority officials Monday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Calhoun Community College to discuss the status of TVA's restart efforts for the Unit 1 reactor at the Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant.

The meeting, which is open to the public, will be held at the college's Aerospace Training Center. NRC officials will be available after the business portion of the meeting to answer questions from observers.

The agenda for the meeting is to discuss the status of the Unit 1 restart efforts, including completed work, schedules, closure of restart items and other activities important to NRC oversight and inspection of Unit 1.

All three units of the Browns Ferry plant were shut down in 1985, but retained NRC operating licenses.

Unit 2 was restarted in 1991 and Unit 3 was restarted in 1995. TVA has been doing extensive work on Unit 1, and expects to have it ready to begin operating this spring.

Just as with Units 2 and 3, Unit 1 cannot be restarted without NRC concurrence.
