COVERT, MI (WHTC) - A “worse-case” scenario at the Palisades plant near Covert will be discussed this evening by Nuclear Regulatory Commission officials during a webinar. The hour-long online session, set to begin at 5 PM, will go over the possibility of “pressurized thermal shock,” when a large amount of cold water is accidently injected into a reactor, with the rapid cooling causing a breach in its integrity. Reservations for participating in tonight’s webinar had to be submitted by yesterday.
