Susquehanna Steam Electric Station's Unit No. 1 returned to service generating electric power June 14 following modification to its turbine.

The Susquehanna plant is located in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, near Berwick. It uses a pair of General Electric (GE) boiling water reactors. PPL Corp. serves as plant operator. Susquehanna produces 63 million kilowatt hours per day.
