Delay announced in Nebraska nuke restart

The Lincoln Journal Star reported this morning:

Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station, owned by the Omaha Public Power District, may not be restarted until January, the utility said Monday.

OPPD shut down the plant in April for refueling and kept it off line during the Missouri River flood. OPPD had hoped to restart the plant this fall.

Located two miles south of Blair, the plant was engulfed by flood water and OPPD erected temporary barriers to protect vital facilities. The flood did not cause major damage there.
