HAMILTON COUNTY, TN (Times Free Press) -- The Nuclear Regulatory Commission says TVA has failed to adequately protect two nuclear plant sites from the potential for the failure of earthen dams upstream and the flooding that would ensue.
NRC on Friday cited TVA with six violations and placed both Sequoyah Nuclear Plant and Watts Bar Nuclear Plant under "yellow" safety flags, indicating what NRC calls "substantial safety significance."
NRC ranks safety findings as white, yellow and red, in increasing order of significance. If a plant is deemed completely safe, it is rated as green.
TVA officials said there is no immediate safety concern because the utility has implemented interim measures to protect the plants against dam failure.
