NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION FINES TMI $40,000 FOR VIOLATIONS
The federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) recently fined the operator of the Three Mile Island
(TMI) nuclear power plant (PA) $40,000 for violating government rules for cleaning up debris from the 1979
accident at the plant. According to the director of the NRC's Office of Inspection and Enforcement, the
violation, involving equipment on a crane, was another, more serious example of previous failures to follow
government specifications. The error was put in the third most serious of five categories.
