Interested in safety issues at U.S. nuclear power plants? Use this tool to find and filter U.S.-based nuclear reactors, then click through to find more detailed reactor-level information. Filters are available under the collapsible sections to the left of the map (or below it on mobile); clicking “update map” will apply those filters and display the matching reactors. Whether a single reactor is operating, proposed, or shut down is indicated by its icon; plants with multiple reactors have their own icon, as they may have reactors with different operational statuses. Click any icon and navigate to the “Plant Overview Page” for more detailed reactor-level information.
