OPPD Dispels Nuclear Meltdown Rumors In Ft. Calhoun
Story posted 2011.06.18 at 12:57 PM CDT
Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman toured the flooded Missouri River this week and saw the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Plant, seemingly inundated by water.
The same image that the governor saw reached the Internet and had led to a wave of rumors. But Omaha Public Power District officials said the images don’t tell the whole story.
They said the flood water pumped into a giant donut around the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Power Plant was put there to keep flood water out. Officials called it an “aqua berm.”
