Knoxville (AP) -- A reactor at the Sequoyah Nuclear Plant near Chattanooga was shut down as a precaution after a feedwater pump malfunctioned.
Operators shut down the Unit 2 Reactor Tuesday after noticing the problem.
TVA said it posed no danger to employees or the public.
The pump supplies water to a steam generator at the plant.
