Another part of the C-10 Panel on Radiation and Nuclear Safety/Licensing Issues. David Lochbaum provides specific examples of nuclear safety issues the Nuclear Regulatory Commission has known about for more than 30 years, but does not enforce its own regulations. According to the NRCs own study, initially 53 of 69 plants did not meet regulations regarding emergency feedwater cooling in case of an accident. Currently that figure stands at 20 plants not in compliance. David points to a list of plants that still do not meet the fire code regulations, and says the infamous Brown's Ferry nuclear plant (which had a very serious candle-ignited fire in the 1970's) is among the culprits.
