Report tallies Texas nuclear plant violations

GLEN ROSE, Texas (AP) — An unreleased report says two Texas nuclear power plants each experienced more than 150 lower-level safety violations from 2000 through 2012.

The data were included in a Government Accountability Office report obtained by The Associated Press. It is intended to show that safety violations at nuclear plants vary from region to region, in part because of differing rules interpretations. The West region, which includes Texas, had 2 ½ times the Southeast's rate of lower-level violations per reactor.

The Comanche Peak plant in Glen Rose had two higher-level violations in addition to its 157 lower-level violations. The South Texas Project plant in Wadsworth had 151 lower-level and no higher-level.

Brad Wilson, a spokesman for Luminant, which owns Comanche Peak, said the company would not comment on a report it couldn't review.

Lower-level violations pose very low risk. Higher-level violations range from low to high safety significance.
