Violation Tracker Individual Record
On December 13, 2002, Notice of Violation and Proposed Imposition of Civil Penalty in the amount of $60,000 was issued for a Severity Level III violation involving the failure to provide complete and accurate information to the NRC from April 13 to 16, 2001, regarding Prairie Island's request for a Notice of Enforcement Discretion (NOED) involving an emergency diesel generator (EDG). Although the normal civil penalty assessment process would have fully mitigated the civil penalty in this case, the NRC exercised discretion in accordance with Section VII.A.1.(c) of the Enforcement Policy and assessed a base civil penalty. Discretion was warranted based on Prairie Island's particularly poor performance leading up to and during the EDG degradation, during the request for an NOED, and during the time period the NOED was in effect.
