NRC Assigns New Inspectors to Indian Point

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has assigned three new resident inspectors to the Indian Point nuclear power plant in Buchanan.

James Scott Stewart was named as the senior resident inspector and Katrina Dunham and Ami Patel were named as the resident inspectors at the facilities.

Previously, Stewart, who joined the NRC in 1987, was the senior resident inspector at the Turkey Point nuclear plant in Homestead, FL, Crystal River 3 in Crystal River FL, and at Calvert Cliffs in Lusby, MD.

Dunham joined the agency in 2010 after graduating from the Maine maritime Academy and most recently was a reactor engineer in the Division of Reactor Projects.

Patel began her career with the NRC in 2008 as a project engineer in Atlanta. She transferred to Rhode Island in 2009 and worked in various positions in the Division of Reactor Projects.

Each commercial nuclear power plant in the U.S. has at least two NRC resident inspectors. They serve as the agency’s eyes and ears at the facility, conducting regular inspections, monitoring significant work projects and interacting with plant workers and the public. (MidHudsonNews, 3/13/2013)
