NRC Fines TVA More Than $600,000 for Discrimination Violations; Cites Two Managers for Their Roles
 
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff has issued a $606,942 civil penalty to the Tennessee Valley Authority, an order prohibiting a senior TVA executive from NRC-licensed activities for five years, and a Notice of Violation to another TVA manager.
 
The enforcement actions stem from NRC investigations finding that two former TVA employees were subjected to adverse actions after raising concerns about a chilled work environment in which employees are less likely to report safety issues for fear of reprisal.
 
The NRC found that TVA’s former vice president of regulatory affairs and former director of corporate nuclear licensing violated the NRC’s employee protection rule and engaged in deliberate misconduct. The NRC is prohibiting the former vice president of regulatory affairs from any involvement in NRC-licensed activities for five years, since he was a decisionmaker for the adverse employee actions. The NRC is issuing a Notice of Violation to the former director of corporate nuclear licensing.
 
The NRC staff continues to review and inspect work environment issues and TVA’s corrective actions at the utility’s corporate office and its three nuclear power plants (Browns Ferry, Sequoyah and Watts Bar). As stated in the most recent annual assessment of Watts Bar, the NRC staff has determined that TVA has made progress in addressing these issues.
 
TVA and the two individuals have 30 days to respond to the NRC’s enforcement actions.

NRC Names New Senior Resident Inspector at Beaver Valley Nuclear Power Plant
 
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has selected Gwynne Eatmon as the new senior resident inspector at the Beaver Valley nuclear power plant in Shippingport, Pa.
 
Eatmon joined the NRC in 2011 as a reactor inspector as part of the agency’s Nuclear Safety Professional Development Program in the Region IV Office in Arlington, Texas. Upon completion of the program, she worked as a reactor inspector in the Region IV Division of Reactor Safety, conducting inspections at operating nuclear power plants.
 
In 2014, she began serving as the resident inspector at the North Anna nuclear power plant near Mineral, Va. More recently, she was the acting senior resident inspector at the Vogtle nuclear power plant near Augusta, Ga.
 
Eatmon holds both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in mechanical engineering from New Mexico State University.
 
Each U.S. commercial nuclear power plant has at least two NRC resident inspectors, who serve as the agency’s eyes and ears at the facility, conducting inspections, monitoring significant work projects and interacting with plant workers and the public.
 

It’s Back!  NEIS “Night with the Experts” Returns!

Greetings All—

NEIS would like to invite you to the second installment of our newly reconstituted online program  --  Night with the Experts.

In August our selected expert will discuss:

Nuclear Power as an Environmental Justice Issue

Thursday, August 27,  7 p.m.

ZOOM link:  click here to join the session (use a computer with camera and microphone for best experience)

Our guest expert this month is Diné activist :

Leona Morgan

Director, Diné No Nukes

Nuclear Issues Study Group, based at Univ. of New Mexico

Leona has long-standing expertise and firsthand experience with uranium mining issues on Indigenous lands worldwide; has presented on Indigenous rights issues at COP-24; and is the co-founder of the Radiation Monitoring Project, providing radiation monitors and professional training on their use to frontline contaminated communities.  She is currently involved in a national organizing effort to prevent the construction “centralized interim storage” dumps for high-level radioactive wastes in southeast New Mexico and West Texas.  Indigenous lands and impoverished tribes are routinely targeted by the U.S. Dept. of Energy and the nuclear industry to serve as dump communities for this deadly waste. The Diné Reservation in New Mexico is also the site of the largest human-made spill of radioactive material in the history of North America, the Church Rock mill tailings spill into the Puerco River, July 16, 1979.

How “Night with the Experts” Works:

With most webinars, especially online, speakers talk for the majority of the time, often leaving little time for detailed questions or genuine discussion.  With NWTE, we reverse that format.  The guest expert(s) will be given about 10 minutes to introduce their information on the topic.  Then, the remainder of the time will be given to the watching/listening participants to ask questions and engage in moderated discussion.  Participants will indicate in the ZOOM “Chat Box” their wish to speak or ask a question, and will be acknowledged in the order received.

NEIS will conduct the series at 7 p.m. on the last Thursday of each month, so mark your calendar.  Next Up:  “Nuclear Power in a COVID World,” our experts TBD; Thursday, September 24th, 7 p.m. Central TZ.  Hope to see you at both of these events!
