FEMA to assist OPPD with $76 Million Bill for flooding at Fort Calhoun

The nuclear plant was surrounded by water last summer. Now OPPD is still in recovery mode, cleaning up and revising plans and procedures.   Although the water has receded, the evidence of flooding remains all over the campus. From barren land where trees, grass, and shrubbery once were, to the colored stripe painting almost every barrier and light pole which stood through the flooding.

The corps of engineers has already announced that they are going release water again next summer.

The most updated numbers show the flooding cost OPPD about $76 million. The power district plans to recover it through aid from FEMA, insurance policies, and cost-cutting measures.
