Nuclear Plant Back Up and Running

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.- A couple days behind schedule, a nuclear power plant is back online.

The Columbia Generating Station was shut down for 44-days for refueling.

Workers replaced about one-third of the plant's nuclear fuel and did repairs and routine maintenance on parts of the plant usually off limits during power production.
