NRC STAFF APPOINTS NEW RESIDENT INSPECTOR AT TMI

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff has selected Craig W. Smith as the new resident inspector at the Three Mile Island nuclear plant in Middletown, Pa. He joins Senior Resident Inspector Wayne Schmidt.

Mr. Smith joined the NRC in 1997 as a licensing project manager in the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation at NRC headquarters in Rockville, Md.

Prior to joining the agency, Mr. Smith worked as an engineer at the Calvert Cliffs nuclear plant in Lusby, Md. He also served in the United States Navy's nuclear power program, where he was a commissioned officer on the USS Memphis and an assistant engineer on a submarine squadron staff.

A graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York, with a bachelor's degree in industrial and management engineering, Mr. Smith lives with his wife and three children in Hummelstown, Pa.

The Three Mile Island resident inspectors can be reached at 717/948-1165.

Each U.S. commercial nuclear plant has at least two NRC resident inspectors. They serve as the agency's eyes and ears at the facility, conducting inspections, monitoring major work projects and interfacing with plant workers and the public.
