Chernobyl Plant Denies Accident Has Occurred

CHERNOBYL, Ukraine -- The Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant has denied allegations in the media that an accident has occurred at the plant.

"The controlled parameters of the Shelter facility are within limits set by the technological regulations," the plant's public relations department said in reference to a concrete encasement built over the Chernobyl unit that in 1986 became the scene of the world's worst ever nuclear accident.



"No transgression of the control levels of the parameters of the state of the Shelter facility have been recorded," the department said.

It said radiation had stayed at an average of 70 microroentgens per hour this week in the area of the plant's management premises and at 1.51 milliroentgens per hour in the area of Shelter's sighting pavilion.

The department said routine maintenance operations were in progress at the Shelter.

The plant is a Ukrainian state enterprise.
