(Brownville, NE)  --  A nuclear power plant along the Missouri River is considered safe.  The Nebraska Public Power District says the Cooper Nuclear Station in Brownville is no longer under a Notice of Unusual Event that was issued on March 15th.  Officials say water levels are receding, and there is no longer a flood threat to the station, which operated normally during the flooding.
