  1. That was continuous NRC Commission Briefing on the accident at Three Mile Island. Meeting like this one caused many planned units and construction engineers to join Utilities. I remember it…….

  2. TMI – I was a guest of the govt. there for a total of five weeks.

  3. March 28, 1979, equipment failures and operator error contributed to loss of coolant and a partial core meltdown of Unit 2’s pressurized water reactor at the Three Mile Island Nuclear Power Plant in Pennsylvania.

  4. Remember it well. There was continuous NRC Commission Briefing (as long as there were at least 3 Commissioners present) on the accident at Three Mile Island. Meeting like this one caused many planned units to be cancelled, and construction engineers to join Utilities.

  5. Let’s see, late 1970’s. Going to have to say TMI. Second choice – WASH-1400.
