LOWER ALLOWAYS CREEK TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - Southern New Jersey’s Salem 2 nuclear power plant is back in service after it was shut down because of a control rod problem.

The unit was shut down on Friday.

PSEG Nuclear spokesman Joe Delmar tells the South Jersey Times (https://bit.ly/1k0G4Zf ) control room operators were conducting monthly tests when they noticed one of the control rods had dropped out of position.

The plant is located in Lower Alloways Creek Township.

Salem Unit 1 and the neighboring Hope Creek plant remained operating.
