SEABROOK, N.H. — The Nuclear Regulatory Commission says New Hampshire’s Seabrook nuclear power plant will receive additional oversight following an inspection finding from an emergency exercise.

The commission says during the April exercise, plant personnel did not develop and make proper initial protective action recommendations to states, based on radiological conditions at the time. However, their recommendations did become correct as the exercise went on.

The commission said plant owner NextEra did not contest the finding and provided results of an analysis of the issue

The commission will do a supplemental inspection at Seabrook to evaluate its evaluation.

All U.S. nuclear plants are required to undergo a graded full-scale emergency exercise once every two years.
