• NRC holding meeting to discuss Catawba Nuclear


    ROCK HILL, S.C. - Federal regulators are scheduled to discuss an assessment of a nuclear power plant in South Carolina.

    On Thursday, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission is holding an open house at Rock Hill City Hall on its evaluation of the Catawba Nuclear Station in York County.

    Agency staffers are planning to answer questions about safety at the Duke Energy facility and give updates on NRC oversight and inspections. Overall, the agency says Catawba's two units operated safely in 2013.

    Last year, the NRC said water with traces of a radioactive hydrogen isotope had again leaked at Catawba but hadn't endangered nearby drinking water.
