September 27, 2018

Waterford — Millstone Power Station advised residents on Thursday that recent increased activity at the plant is associated with a regularly scheduled refueling outage at Unit 2.

During the approximately monthlong outage, which began Thursday, Sept. 27, 2018, more than 900 supplemental staff will work with full-time personnel to perform maintenance and ready the unit for its next 18 months of operation.

Millstone officials apologized for any inconvenience associated with the noisy venting of steam required when Unit 2 was taken offline.
