      Original Press Release:

      June 16 -- Nuclear Regulatory Commission issued the following news release:

      Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff will discuss the 2021 safety performance of the Point Beach Nuclear Power Plant during an in person open house scheduled for June 23. The plant is located in Two Rivers, Wisconsin, and is operated by NextEra Energy Point Beach, LLC.

      The open house will be held from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Central time at the Lester Public Library, 1001 Adams Street in Two Rivers. NRC staff responsible for plant inspection and oversight will participate in the discussion, including the resident inspectors based full-time at the site.

      The NRC determined that Point Beach operated safely during 2021. All inspection findings and performance indicators were green or very low safety significance. As a result, Point Beach remains under the NRC’s normal level of oversight. This oversight entails thousands of hours of inspection each year.

      The NRC Reactor Oversight Process uses color-coded inspection findings and indicators to measure plant performance. The colors start at green and increase to white, yellow or red, commensurate with the safety significance of the issues involved. Inspection findings or performance indicators with more than very low safety significance trigger increased NRC oversight.

      Plant inspections are performed by two NRC resident inspectors and inspection specialists from the agency’s Region III office in Lisle, Illinois.

      The annual assessment letter and meeting notice for Point Beach are available on the NRC website. Current performance information for Unit 1 and Unit 2 is also available and is updated on a quarterly basis.
