Depleted uranium probe of Army sites completed NRC ISSUES NOTICE OF VIOLATION BY NANCY COOK LAUER | WEST HAWAII TODAY August 4, 2011HILO -- The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has wrapped up its investigation of depleted uranium at Pohakuloa Training Area and Schofield Barracks by issuing a "Notice of Violation."
The notice, issued Monday, states a Security Level III violation occurred, for which the base civil penalty is $3,500. But the regulatory agency gave the Army credit because neither Schofield Barracks nor Pohakuloa has previously been the subject of "escalated enforcement action" and the Army identified the contamination and notified the NRC, the notice said.
"The NRC has concluded that the Army has provided adequate information regarding the reason for the violation, the corrective actions taken, and planned to be taken, to correct the violation and to prevent recurrence, so the enforcement action is resolved," NRC spokesman Scott Burnell told West Hawaii Today. "However, if additional information alters the NRC's understanding of the corrective actions taken or planned to be taken, a fine could be reconsidered."
