On Thursday, Sept. 13, Braidwood Generating Station hosted a Community Open House at the Exelon Services and Training Center in Wilmington, Ill.
Employees were on hand to talk with visitors about station operations and enhancements made at the station following last year’s event at the Fukushima nuclear facility in Japan. An update on tritium remediation was also provided. Since remediation efforts began in June 2006, tritium groundwater levels have been reduced by more than 98%.
Visitors also toured Braidwood Station’s main control room simulator which is used to train reactor operators and has the opportunity to meet Neutron, the Braidwood Police Department’s crime fighting dog.
