WOLF CREEK GENERATING STATION, NRC SECURITY INSPECTION
Dear Mr. Heflin:
On July 27, 2016, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) completed a security
inspection at the Wolf Creek Generating Station. The NRC inspectors discussed the results of this inspection with Mr. S. Smith, Plant Manager, and other members of your staff. The inspectors documented the results of this inspection in the enclosed inspection report.
The NRC inspectors documented three findings of very low security significance (Green) in this report. These findings involved violations of NRC requirements. In addition, the inspectors documented one violation that was determined to be Severity Level IV under the traditional enforcement process. Further, inspectors documented a licensee-identified violation which was determined to be of very low safety significance in this report. The NRC is treating these violations as non-cited violations (NCVs) consistent with Section 2.3.2.a of the Enforcement Policy.
If you contest the violations or significance of the non-cited violations, you should provide a response within 30 days of the date of this inspection report, with the basis for your denial, to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, ATTN: Document Control Desk, Washington, DC 20555-0001, with copies to the Regional Administrator, Region IV; the Director, Office of Enforcement, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555-0001; and the NRC resident inspector at the Wolf Creek Generating Station.
Cross-cutting aspects were assigned to three of the findings in the areas of problem
identification and resolution, evaluation (P.2) and self-assessment (P6) (assigned to two of the findings). If you disagree with the cross-cutting aspect assignments in this report, you should provide a response within 30 days of the date of this inspection report, with a basis for your disagreement to the Regional Administrator, Region IV, and the NRC resident inspector at the Wolf Creek Generating Station.
