NRC gives notice of intent to terminate the license for U.Va.'s nuclear reactor

Here is the notice from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission of the termination of the operating license for the nuclear reactor facility that was located at the University of Virginia.

If I understand it correctly, it says the reactor was first operated in 1960 and shut down in 1998.

I wondered when I saw the recent ABC News story about loose security at college nuclear facilities whether there was still an operating nuclear reactor at U.Va.
