The Nine Mile Two nuclear reactor in Scriba shut down overnight.

According to a filing with the federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the reactor began shutting down because of a water level in the reactor that had fallen to the point where it kicked off an automatic shutdown.

The reason for the drop in water level hasn’t been identified.
