LOUISA, Va. (AP) - A nuclear reactor at Dominion Virginia Power's North Anna power plant is operating at full power again.
The utility shut down Unit 2 on Oct. 7 after the operators discovered a seal on a reactor coolant pump was degrading.
Crews replaced the seal package, along with one on another coolant pump, during the shutdown.
The utility restarted the reactor over the weekend.
North Anna's other reactor, Unit 1, operated at full power during Unit 2's shutdown.
