Susquehanna 1

Susquehanna 1 was shut down yesterday following a steam leak. This article and a number of others like it are on the wires now.

A quick look at the NRC report made 08:12 AM on the 25th indicates that the leak was in a feedwater heating system and that the reactor was shut down by manual insertion of rods at normal rate by the operators on duty. The leak was quickly isolated following shutdown; time to restart the plant is stated as "not known."
