      Nuclear One Unit Running Again

      {}Unit Two at Arkansas Nuclear One is back online.

      {}It{}was reconnected to the grid{}Sunday afternoon after almost a month offline.

      {}It shut down automatically after an accident back on March 31st.

      A worker was killed and eight others were injured when a 550 ton piece of equipment fell as a lifting rig collapsed.

      The{}federal Nuclear Regulatory commission conducted an investigation that revealed that there was no release of radiation{}and there was never a danger to the public.

      {}As for Unit One,{}crews are{}still working on damage evaluation, and repair estimates, and are{}rescheduling the unit's refueling activities.
