PG&E shuts down Unit 1 at Diablo Canyon for repair work

PG&E officials say they have shut down Unit 1 at Diablo Canyon successfully.

They said they are doing maintenance on the back-up cooling system.

PG&E said routine inspections found a small buildup of boric acid on the Unit 1 Residual Heat Removal System.

The company says the system helps manage reactor coolant temperatures in case of an emergency.

They do say Unit 1 does not pose a safety risk.
