Workers at Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station found one component of the nuclear power plant's equipment had deteriorated when attempting to shut down a generator Monday morning, officials said. As a result, they notified federal officials and removed the piece from service.


...The questionable piece of equipment — "Unit 3" — had a part that was damaged to the point that crews had to use an alternate method for shutting down the system.

Based on standard procedure, officials at Peach Bottom notified the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission about what they described as an "unusual event."
