Nuclear Plant Violations to be Topic of Discussion Next Week

 RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Federal regulators have scheduled meetings with Dominion Virginia Power to discuss apparent violations at its two nuclear power stations.
 
     The Nuclear Regulatory Commission says it has scheduled meetings in Atlanta with company officials next week to discuss the issues at the energy provider's North Anna and Surry nuclear power stations. 
 
     Regulators say inspectors found that a gasket failure prevented one of the diesel generators at North Anna from performing its function following the August earthquake. While the gasket was replaced the same day, inspectors found the plant did not have adequate procedures for installing the gasket.
 
     The NRC also says inspectors found the company failed to provide appropriate maintenance procedures for a standpipe that indicates coolant levels in one of the reactors at its Surry plant during maintenance activities.
