Operators at Exelon Generation’s LaSalle County Station took Unit 2 offline early last Friday morning to perform planned maintenance on two pumps that circulate water inside the reactor. This work cannot be performed while the unit is in operation.

LaSalle Station is about 75 miles southwest of Chicago near Marseilles, Ill. At full power, the facility’s two generating units produce more than 2,200 megawatts of electricity, enough to power 2.3 million typical American homes.
