There are so many safety systems it is very easy to shutdown a nuclear power plant, it is much more difficult to start back up, you have to verify everything is working right before comencing a start up. A very minor problem can cause a shutdown, a problem in a backup system not even in use can prevent a start-up. It is always safety first at a nuclear power plant.

Before commenting on anything maybe you should know something about. For starters what is an evaporation zone? Did you mean evacuation zone? Or could you not read the letter sent to you. Honestly every Nuclear Power Plant shuts down every 18 to 24 months mabe if you read the news you would know that. Yup no one that works at Ginna has or uses a cell phone at work. Come on people please think before you speak or at least Google before comment. Really my IQ is dropping just thinking about this.

The point to take away here is that they ARE doing the proper maintenance at the facility. Events like this one are insignificant in the overall operation of a reactor. Its really just a warning of a part failing, of which there are probably a half-dozen active backups for. More important is the fact that even these simple events are made public -- that is key in preventing the behaviors that led to the Chernobyl distater.

Probably. The land is cheap in that area so they built trailer parks out there. Your park might be in the zone.

It's good to know that nuclear professionals are at work 24 hours a days safely operating the Ginna Nuclear plant. While the rest of the county is getting shnockered tomorrow night, Slash and Co will be gettin'er done so everyone has power for their New Years Eve party. And "Your But", try using spell-check next time. Bill Gates made it jus fer peepil like yu!

Careful whatcha wish for 585er...Ontario isn't all that far from the Monroe County border.

To the guy who said land's cheap here in Wayne County...really? Have you checked the prices recently? They've gone up quite a lot in recent years, especially in the western end of the county.

Only in the western most parts in the West Walworth, and Gananda areas. For the most part the higher prices have discouraged the white trash from taking over that part.
