Palisades Nuclear Plant Gets New Resident Inspector

The Paliades nuclear power plant has a new resident inspector. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission says Courtney St. Peters is now on the job along with Senior Resident Inspector Paul LaFlamme. The two are responsible for monitoring the day-to-day operations at the plant and are the NRC’s “eyes and ears at the facility.” St. Peters joined the NRC in 2010 while studying nuclear engineering at Missouri University of Science and Technology. The NRC says all resident inspectors are working remotely, but are still making regular visits to plants and following appropriate guidelines.
