Entergy panel to begin safety assessment, NY

North County News - Award winning local news for the Hudson Valley, NY: "A panel of 12 nuclear experts hired by Entergy Nuclear, owner of the Indian Point Nuclear Power Plants in Buchanan, has started to work on the safety assessment for two reactors.
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), the federal oversight agency, ordered a safety review in early March because of several operating problems and Entergy’s repeated failures to complete their new emergency siren system. Entergy has applied for new operating licenses for Units One and Two, which expire in 2013 and 2015."
