Some of the discussion at the next meeting about the Fort Calhoun nuclear plant will be private because security information will be discussed.
Nuclear Regulatory Commission officials said that its meeting Monday with Omaha Public Power District officials about the troubled Fort Calhoun plant will focus on flood protection and security for the plant 20 miles north of Omaha.
Fort Calhoun has been shut down for more than two years. Initially the plant went offline for routine refueling maintenance in 2011, but flooding along the Missouri River and a series of safety violations forced it to stay closed.
Omaha Public Power District officials said significant progress has been made on addressing the plant's problems.
Regulators won't allow the plant to restart unless they're confident it's safe. — AP
