The Fort Calhoun nuclear power plant

Days after shutting down the reactor at the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station to deal with iced-over equipment, the Omaha Public Power District has restarted it.
The plant recently came out of a cold shutdown that lasted nearly three years. It had been online for only a few weeks when workers spotted ice on one of six floodgates that regulate the amount of Missouri River water being pumped into the plant.
