Violation Description: 

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has proposed a $17,500 civil penalty against Dominion Energy Kewaunee, Inc. for the Kewaunee nuclear power plant, for a security-related violation stemming from routine agency security inspections. The NRC conducted the inspections between June and December of last year. Agency inspectors looked at the security requirements for the permanently shut down plant, conducted onsite inspections and reviewed plant documents. Once the issue was identified the plant took corrective actions to address the security violations before the NRC inspectors left the site. To emphasize the importance of security awareness as well as the need for prompt identification of a violation the NRC has proposed a $17,500 civil penalty.
