Larry Yeates
12/28/2015 On December 28, 2015, the NRC issued a Notice of Violation to Mr. Larry Yeates for Severity Level III violations of 10 CFR Part 72.12, "Deliberate misconduct," paragraphs (a)(1) and (a)(2). These violations involved the deliberate failures to ensure liquid penetrant nondestructive tests, a special process, was conducted in accordance with the Monticello Nuclear Generating Plant procedure. Specifically, from September 5, 2013 through October 17, 2013, Mr. Yeates deliberately failed to comply with procedure steps involving the developing time before final interpretation of 38 welds on the 6 separate spent fuel storage dry shielded canisters he examined. Additionally, Mr. Yeates failed to accurately record the nondestructive evaluation results. The information was not accurate because the developer dwell times were over-reported.
