Washington, D.C. – Congressman Jon Runyan (R-NJ), issued the following statement regarding the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s (NRC) decision to undertake a special inspection of the Oyster Creek Nuclear Plant.
“I welcome an NRC special inspection into the emergency actions taken at Oyster Creek during Hurricane Sandy. Oyster Creek was not far from the eye of the storm, so this can be used as a learning experience to help prepare nuclear facilities around the country for future natural disasters. While I am confident the staff at Oyster Creek acted competently I look forward to the outcome of the inspection.”
On Monday October 29th, the facility issued an “alert” when Oyster Creek employees encountered a six feet increase of the sea level within the intake system. Around the same time the plant experienced a power disruption causing the diesel generators to activate. On Wednesday October 31st, Oyster Creek’s plant operator, Exelon, declared the “alert” over when the sea level subsided to normal levels.

"As soon as you step into the lake on foot or in a boat, you're in the state's domain. I feel bad for the snake, and I hope it gets rescued before it dies when it gets cold. It didn't mean to get let out there. This snake should be one thing we can get together on and not worry about party affiliation. Unless the snake's a Democrat." - Republican Mount Arlington Mayor Arthur Ondish- PolitickerNJ
