COVERT TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Officials with Palisades Nuclear Plant in southwestern Michigan plan to meet with regulators about findings of a report about workers in a high radiation area.

Nuclear Regulatory Commission says its staff scheduled a regulatory conference with Entergy officials Tuesday to discuss preliminary findings related to measuring workers’ exposure to radiation while replacing parts last year at the plant in Van Buren County’s Covert Township.

The NRC says there was no negative impact on the plant or public. No decisions on the final safety significance or other NRC actions will be made at the meeting. The NRC says it wants to make sure the plant has proper programs and training in place.

A spokeswoman for New Orleans-based Entergy has said the company took multiple actions to measure and limit radiation exposure.
