The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is imposing a 70-thousand dollar fine against the TVA for violations found at the Sequoyah Nuclear Plant in 2012.

Federal regulators decided the civil penalty was warranted after finding that TVA did not maintain required fire watches at the plant near Soddy-Daisy and then tried to cover up the error by falsifying records.
