Feds say NE Ohio plant needs to improve safety

Inspections last year found some improvement, but not enough to satisfy inspectors the plant had gotten to the root of the problems. Plant managers also detected and fixed a potential security problem.

"Perry's overall performance is adequate and has improved," said Charles Casto, NRC manager for the Midwest. "Perry does not have the widespread problems we normally see in a plant that must have even more federal oversight."

He got permission from NRC headquarters to give Perry until July to clear up remaining issues, and said he expected the plant to resolve them quickly.

Young said the plant now has internal online radiation maps to be checked before any project is started.
