K. M. says –
Right now water level in Missouri River is 901ft above sea level. According to chart, plant shut down at 902ft above sea level–river depth of 45.5ft.
Excerpt: 3/16/2019
Nebraska Public Power District continues to produce power at Cooper Nuclear Station. The plant continues to operate at 100 percent as of 5 p.m. The plant continues to be in a Notification of Unusual Event. Water levels on the Missouri River have been trending down at CNS since mid-day and stands at 901 feet mean sea level at the plant…Cooper Nuclear Station stores spent fuel rods at the plant. If the Missouri River rises high enough, could they be flooded over and contamination be carried downstream?

Cooper Nuclear Station near Brownville sandbagging as Missouri River rises.
Excerpt: At 7:30 a.m.[03.17.19], the river was at 43 feet and was a foot away from overtopping the levee at Brownville.

I thought they had shut it. Where is the waste? Will the Louisiana dams breech and impact those reactors?

They say that the water won’t get higher than it’s been in Baton Rouge Louisiana, but it sounds like the levees have been under stress since last October and they say they will still get a crest in April coming through. They are only monitoring half the sites of 2011, I don’t know if it’s because of the current admin: https://www.theadvocate.com/baton_rouge/news/article_379786bc-4a8b-11e9-8ccc-4b069593c13a.html At least they have a second spillway to open, though the people living there won’t be happy. They mention the flood in the late 1920s… it took a year or two to go down.

8am Nebraska time mean water level is 898.9ft. I don’t see any big storms in the current future forecast for Nebraska that would raise the river water. Although warm weather may move into the area to melt more ice and snow. Weather swings are severe this time of year. You never know what else could happen.

At 3pm river height was back up to 900.6ft above mean sea level height. The river level is getting close to the danger threshold of the Nebraska Cooper NPP. That drone video around West Point NE showed very high water and discussed levies on the verge of collapse.

If you see anything on Callaway, that’s where they have the underground Holtec nuclear waste cans. It’s apparently in Missouri. I thought it was Nebraska.

RSOE –
The Missouri River will reach near-record levels after Midwest and Great Plain streams were swelled by a massive storm that soaked fields and dropped heavy snow from Colorado to Canada this week. At Rulo, Nebraska, Missouri was forecast to crest within 6 inches (152 millimeters) of its record height set in June 2011, the National Weather Service said. Further downstream in St. Joseph, Missouri, it’s expected to reach within a foot of its all-time high. While weather conditions have eased, rivers throughout the Midwest and Great Plains will remain high through the weekend, said Marc Chenard, a senior branch forecaster at the Weather Prediction Center. Nebraska Public Power District’s Cooper nuclear plant will close when Missouri reaches 901.5 feet above sea level, which is forecast for late tonight or early Saturday morning, said Mark Becker, a utility spokesman. Staff has placed sandbags along the river levee and the plant itself should remain “high and dry” because it was built 903 feet above sea level, he said.

The same type of reactor as the failed reactors in Fukushima, Japan. The back-up power generators were flooded due to the tsunami. Now we may have the same problem with flood water.

“Flooding has closed more than 100 roads in Missouri. Seventy miles of Interstate 29 is closed from St. Joseph to the Iowa border, complicating efforts to access the Cooper Nuclear Station along the Missouri River in Nebraska.”
