The only nuclear power plant in Massachusetts is back on line after a $70 million, monthlong, refueling and maintenance project.
The Pilgrim nuclear power plant in Plymouth was shut down last weekend so workers could repair what ownership called a small steam leak in the plant’s feed water system.
Federal nuclear regulators say the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station in Plymouth is subject to additional oversight related to an emergency shutdown in May.
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission sent a three-member inspection team to the Pilgrim nuclear power plant on Monday to try and figure out what led to an automatic shutdown last week that’s been blamed on human error.
Officials from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission are reassuring state leaders that nuclear plants in and around Massachusetts are safe, even as they order inspections of the plants here and across the country.
