Two days after TVA shut down the oldest reactor and began the refueling work Saturday, the newest reactor at Watts Bar also was shut down Monday morning after plant operators detected problems in the pumps that supply water to the steam generators in the turbine building outside of the nuclear reactor for Unit 2.

TVA had several such unplanned outages on the Unit 2 reactor last year after it began generating power for the first time. While the Unit 1 reactor was reaching full power last summer, a transformer yard fire on Aug. 30 forced TVA to take the plant off line for four weeks to replace the damaged transformer.
