The Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff has identified 13 nuclear plants that warrant increased NRC regulatory attention. These plants will remain on the NRC "watch list."

No additional nuclear plants were added to the NRC watch list. But one plant - Indian Point 3, operated by the New York Power Authority - was removed from the list. Indian Point 3 had been placed on the list in June 1993, and now has been removed due to improved performance.

The semi-annual review leaves the following plants on the list: Florida Power Corp.'s Crystal River 3; Commonwealth Edison's Dresden Units 2 and 3; La Salle Units 1 and 2, and Zion Units 1 and 2; Maine Yankee Atomic Power Co.'s Maine Yankee; Northeast Utilities Service Co.'s Millstone Units 1,2 and 3; and Public Service Electric and Gas Co.'s Salem Units 1 and 2. t
