Davis - Besse Nuclear Power Station

At full production the damaged Davis-Besse FirstEnergy plant produces power to 750,000 people in the Ohio area. It has been openly admitted that there have been cracks found in the casing of the plant over two months ago, however the NRC still approved the plant to reopen on information FirstEnergy supplied. ~ Shepard Ambellas - Video

An excerpt from Bloomberg Businessweek reads;

A nuclear reactor where cracks were discovered in the plant's concrete shell nearly two months ago began producing electricity again Tuesday, despite objections from an Ohio congressman who says unanswered questions are lingering about what happened.

FirstEnergy Corp., the operator of the Davis-Besse plant near Toledo, said it should be at full power later this week.

The plant along Lake Erie was shut down for maintenance in October when crews discovered a 30-foot hairline crack in the outer concrete wall that's designed to protect the reactor from anything that might hit it from outside such as storm debris.

More cracks were found soon after leading to closer inspections.

Could this be the next Fukushima in the works?

How many other plants in America are looming disasters? How many more have cracks?

U.S. Rep Dennis Kucinich has even spoken out about this matter eluding to the fact that we don't know if the crack will lead to a bigger problem. Kucinich, an activist of the FirstEnergy facility has at least publicly acknowledged the situation.
