The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has established a page on the agency’s website containing information about the agency’s increased oversight of the Pilgrim nuclear power plant.
2015, the NRC announced that Pilgrim had moved to Column 4 of the Action
Matrix used to determine the level and types of inspections to be
performed at any given plant. Pilgrim, which is located in Plymouth,
Mass., made that transition after an inspection finding designated as
“White,” or of low to moderate safety significance, was finalized for
the facility. The finding overlapped with two earlier findings that were
also of low to moderate safety significance, resulting in an NRC
determination that the plant should be in Column 4, also known as the
Multiple/Repetitive Degraded Cornerstone Column, and therefore subject
to additional oversight.
Among the items on the web page are
background information, schedules, NRC correspondence related to the
increased oversight, inspection reports and other key documents. As the
oversight process moves forward, newly released documents will be added
to the page.
The exact address for the web page is: http://www.nrc.gov/info-finder/reactors/pilg/special- oversight.html.
