BROWNVILLE, Neb. — An alert issued at a southeast Nebraska nuclear power plant as rising floodwaters from the bloated Missouri River threatened its perimeter has been terminated.

The Nebraska Public Power District said Tuesday it officially ended the notice of unusual event at the Cooper Power Plant that began June 19.

The utility issued the alert when the river rose 899 feet above sea level. The Missouri River had fallen to 895.5 feet above sea level by Wednesday morning.

The utility says it appears that the level of the river will continue to slowly decline as long as no major rain storms develop. The utility plans to keep most of the flood barricades in place at Cooper as a precaution.

Operations continued at Cooper throughout the flood threat.
