NRC calls for venting gas at Three Mile Island plant

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission recommended Monday that radioactive gases be vented from the crippled reactor at Three Mile Island, damaged in an accident more than a year ago. The commission said that releasing the krypton gas over a two- month period would have little effect on the health of residents living around the Pennsylvania plant. But if no action were taken, the authority said, there could be a further equipment breakdown inside the reactor, leading to another dangerous buildup of radioactivity.
