NEW YORK POWER AUTHORITY WILL NOT CONTEST NRC FINE PROPOSAL

 NEW YORK POWER AUTHORITY WILL NOT CONTEST NRC FINE PROPOSAL
 BUCHANAN, N.Y., Sept. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- The New York Power Authority said Friday it will not contest a $100,000 fine proposed by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) staff for violations of NRC requirements concerning repairs to the service water system at the Indian Point 3 Nuclear Power Plant.
 The NRC said the Power Authority did not properly evaluate and repair leaks in the system, which carries water from the Hudson River to cool various plant components such as pumps, heat exchangers and backup diesel generators.
 "As the NRC noted, the system would have performed its intended safety functions despite these problems," said Ralph E. Beedle, the Power Authority's executive vice president-nuclear generation. He said the leaks occurred through pinhole openings and did not affect operation of the system.
 "The NRC also pointed out that we have taken actions to correct the violations and prevent their recurrence," Beedle said.
