South Texas Reactor Operates Safely During Tropical Storm Harvey

The two nuclear reactors currently running at South Texas Project (STP) have been operating at full capacity with no interruption during Tropical Storm Harvey.

Despite forceful winds and heavy flooding in and around the plant, STP has remained in full operation and the NRC has been closely monitoring the plant with inspectors onsite. The reactors are supplied with fuel that will last for 18-months so they can continue to run without interruption.

South Texas Project is 90 miles southwest of Houston and is manned by 250 engineers, operators, maintenance and support staff.
