Indian Point Tank Alarms Were Fixed

A water tank alarm problem was fixed at New York’s Indian Point nuclear power plant.

Indicators for a refueling water tank were not working last Thursday, but were remedied the same day. A Nuclear Regulatory Commission spokesman says operators at Buchanan-based Indian Point Unit 3 had discovered that the two sets of low-low water level indicators, or alarms, for the plant’s refueling water storage tank were not functioning. He says the culprit was a failed strip heater and, in the extreme cold, the lines to the indicators froze.
