Regulators clear TVA plant of 3 violations

ATHENS, AL (AP) -

Regulators have cleared TVA's Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant of 3 minor safety violations.

The Decatur Daily reports the Nuclear Regulatory Commission issued the ruling at a public meeting Wednesday.

1 of the violations was related to plant worker training on shutdown procedures. Two others concerned an injection system that was out of service longer than planned.

Eugene Guthrie of the NRC says regulators concluded that Tennessee Valley Authority workers understood the problems and took the appropriate actions.

The plant is still under a more serious safety finding linked to a stuck valve in an emergency cooling system.
