WATERFORD, Conn. (AP) _ The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has found three safety and compliance violations at Connecticut’s Millstone nuclear plant that the federal agency says have “very low safety significance.”

The Day of New London reports (http://bit.ly/18cCH8Q ) that the agency said in Wednesday in its quarterly inspection report that one violation involved Millstone operators failing to promptly notify the agency that monitoring equipment on stacks discharging gaseous effluent stopped working on April 16.

The second violation involved installation of equipment without proper design modifications, causing a valve to open and an uncontrolled loss of coolant system inventory.

The third violation was a failure to follow proper procedure to prevent buildup of hydrogen gas.

Millstone spokesman Ken Holt said corrections have been made and a corrective action plan was submitted to the federal agency.
