Nuclear Event in USA on Tuesday, 22 April, 2008 at 03:07 (03:07 AM) UTC.
Federal officials say New York's Indian Point 2 nuclear reactor has been shut down because operators noticed a drop in water levels in the steam generator and a reduction in output. The plant is located in New York City's northern suburbs. It had to be shut down manually just as it was powering up from a 26-day outage for refueling and maintenance. A Nuclear Regulatory Commission spokesman says the plant is stable. He says water levels around the reactor weren't affected and there was no release of radioactivity. Indian Point owner Entergy Nuclear says the shutdown Monday was prompted by an erroneous signal and the cause of the problem is under investigation. Companion reactor Indian Point 3 is operating normally.
