Nuclear Regulatory Commission inspectors carrying out an inspection of the emergency diesel generators at the Kewaunee nuclear power plant in Wisconsin, USA. This specific inspection is part of the inspections resulting from the Near-Term Task Force recommendations. This report was produced in response to the nuclear accident in Fukushima. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission required every nuclear power plant in the USA to take a number of actions. One of the highest-priority actions involved re-examining earthquake and flooding issues, examining sites to see how they would cope in the event of such natural disasters.
