Some time ago it was discovered that a plant in Ohio had a 30 foot crack in one of its containmet buildings. Now this is not in itself a bad thing, but in the event of a catastrophic diaster such as a meltdown it would be. So my question is, how are they going to fix the cracks if it is running?


Federal regulators will allow an Ohio nuclear reactor to reopen after being satisfied that cracks discovered in concrete at the plant don't pose a safety concern.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission said Friday that the operator of the nuclear plant along Lake Erie has given them reasonable assurance that cracks found on the outside of the reactor containment building don't pose a safety threat.

The Davis-Besse (BEH'-see) plant outside Toledo was shut down in October for installation of the 82-ton reactor head. Soon afterward, crews discovered a 30-foot hairline crack in the outer wall.

Plant operator FirstEnergy Corp. says it will closely monitor the containment building and try to find out what led to the cracks

I dont think they have any intentions of fixing the cracks or they would have fixed it already. I mean my gosh this is plum stupidity. The next thing that will probably happen is that it melts down and they will be trying to figure how it was able to spew radiation into the atmosphere (knowing the whole time that it was that little crack they didn't fix!).
