PLYMOUTH — Entergy Corp. has 30 days to dispute findings from the latest federal security inspection that included five violations at the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station.

Specifics were not supplied by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission because “disclosure to unauthorized individuals could present a security vulnerability,” according to a letter to Entergy from Raymond McKinley, chief of the NRC’s Division of Reactor Safety for the Northeast region.

McKinley wrote that some of the findings were related to human performance, “because Entergy failed to recognize and plan for the possibility of mistakes, latent issues and inherent risk.”

The company also failed “to implement a process of planning, controlling and executing work activities such that nuclear safety was the overriding priority.”Inspectors once again criticized Entergy for failing to take corrective actions in a timely manner.

The inspection was conducted Oct. 23.
