BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - An unspecified security violation recorded last year at Entergy’s River Bend nuclear plant in St. Francisville has prompted the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to hold a town hall meeting later this month about the plant’s 2014 performance and the agency’s oversight and planned inspections.

According to the Greater Baton Rouge Business Report (https://bit.ly/1BRD0DG ), the meeting is set for April 14 from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the St. Francisville Town Hall.

In a news release, the NRC says the plant operated safely overall during 2014 but will get additional oversight as a result of a security violation. The agency says it will also conduct an additional inspection because the plant had two unplanned shutdowns during the fourth quarter of 2014, exceeding a performance threshold.
