DELTA, Pa. (AP) – People living near a York County nuclear power plant shouldn’t worry if they hear sirens.

The siren is located in Lancaster County and is a part of the emergency warning siren system surrounding Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station. The siren will sound for three minutes, following maintenance, to confirm that it is working.

Peach Bottom’s system includes 97 sirens in a 10-mile radius around the two-unit nuclear plant. It is located about 50 miles south of Harrisburg, near the Maryland border.
