2 Dominion Power reactors offline
Dominion Virginia Power has halted the restarting of a reactor at its Surry power plant and taken out of service a reactor at its North Anna power plant.
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission says North Anna's Unit 1 was shut down shortly after 6:30 p.m. Wednesday because of leaks in a steam line.
Dominion Virginia Power spokesman Richard Zuercher says the restart of Unit 2 at the Surry plant was halted after a voltage regulator "did not perform as expected."
Surry's Unit 2 was shut down Sunday night because of a water pipe leak.
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission said the other two reactors at North Anna and Surry were operating at full capacity Thursday morning.
