Significant Nuclear Power Plant Events


The purpose of this section is to highlight and describe those events that have shaped the course of nuclear power plant history from a public, regulatory and operational perspective. Links will be made as material is developed. The Oak Ridge National Laboratory has published several reports over the years which provide very good summaries of less significant events.
