Dominion shuts down 1 North Anna reactor

MINERAL, Va. — One reactor at Dominion Virginia Power’s North Anna power station is shut down following a pump malfunction.

The commission says Unit 1 wasn’t affected and continues to operate at full power.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that Unit 2 will remain shut down while the commission and Dominion investigation the pump malfunction.
