Goldfish Found In Reactor Water At Perry Nuclear Plant

The NRC is investigating an incident during the recent maintenance outage at the Perry nuclear plant in Ohio. Goldfish were found swimming in a lemonade pitcher filled with reactor water that was left in the steam tunnel. The location is part of the secured portion of the reactor building that houses the steam pipes that run between the reactor and the turbine building.

The NRC and plant operators think they will be able to catch the pranksters due to security cameras and limited access into the area. The Perry nuclear plant is already under heightened scrutiny after two workers were involved in a life threatening radiation incident last year.

The number of whistleblower complaints from nuclear plant workers and NRC employees has seen an uptick in recent years. An incident at San Onofre nuclear plant, another plant under heightened scrutiny by the NRC is still working on a suspected sabotage incident involving an emergency generator.
