WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) — A supervisor who admitted trying to cover up fuel contamination at a New York nuclear plant has been banned from the industry for a year.
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission said Tuesday that Daniel Wilson cannot take part in any commission-licensed activities in the U.S.
Wilson was chemistry manager at the Indian Point plant when fuel for emergency generators was found to contain excessive particulate matter. A federal complaint said Wilson faked a test to show the problem had been solved and then lied about it.
Wilson pleaded guilty last year in federal court to violating NRC regulations. He was sentenced in January to 18 months of probation and fined $500.
The NRC also issued notices of violations to Entergy Nuclear, owner of the Westchester County plant.
