PEACH BOTTOM UNIT 2 TO BE SHUT DOWN BRIEFLY FOR MAINTENANCE

 PEACH BOTTOM UNIT 2 TO BE SHUT DOWN BRIEFLY FOR MAINTENANCE
 PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Philadelphia Electric Company (NYSE: PE) said Unit 2 at its Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station in York County will be shut down tonight for about a week to perform maintenance on a check valve in the unit's nuclear reactor.
 PE said the valve's water leakage rate is exceeding the plant's test acceptance criteria, so the unit will be shut down to overhaul the valve.
 The valve is part of the unit's residual heat removal system that would operate in the event of a reactor emergency.
 Unit 3 at Peach Bottom was shut down in September for a scheduled three-month refueling and maintenance outage. It is due back on line by the end of December.
