Another meeting set to discuss Nebraska nuke plant

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Federal regulators have scheduled another in a series of meetings to discuss the efforts to restart the Fort Calhoun nuclear power plant.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission says it will meet with Omaha Public Power District officials from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Sept. 11 at Dana College's Gardner-Hawks Center in Blair.

The plant sits 20 miles north of Omaha. It's been offline since April 2011. Initially it was shut down for refueling maintenance, but flooding along the Missouri River and a series of safety violations forced it to stay closed.

State and federal officials have said Fort Calhoun's problems never represented a threat to public safety.
