LOWER ALLOWAYS CREEK TWP. — A 1-inch hole found in the wall of the Hope Creek nuclear reactor’s secondary containment building was likely made during original construction of the plant, officials said Wednesday.

But whether the hole was ever filled or has remained open since the facility was built in the early 1980s is being investigated……..Hope Creek and Salem 1 and Salem 2 comprise the second-largest commercial nuclear complex in the United States.
