Zurawski joins D.C. Cook as Senior Resident Inspector

06 February 2020

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission has selected Paul Zurawski as the senior resident inspector at the Donald C. Cook Nuclear Power Plant.

Zurawski joined the NRC in 2006 as a Region III reactor engineer. He also served as a senior resident inspector at the Monticello nuclear power plant and as a resident inspector at the Prairie Island nuclear power plant. Zurawski also completed a rotation as a technical assistant to former NRC Commissioner and Chairman Stephen G. Burns and participated in an inspector exchange program between the NRC and the Canadian nuclear regulator. Prior to joining the NRC, he worked for more than 20 years in the commercial sector where he oversaw major activities such as several steam generator replacements and numerous dry fuel storage projects.

Each commercial nuclear power plant site in the United States has at least two resident inspectors who monitor day-to-day operations. Zurawski joins NRC resident inspector Joe Mancuso at the D.C. Cook facility, where they will serve as the agency’s eyes and ears at the facility, conducting inspections and monitoring significant work projects.
