This was not in accordance with the general conditions of the demolition agreement with the EPA. The steel was being cut with a torch and the paint along the cut line had been abated by the licensee to prevent burning paint with PCBs. However, some cuts were inadvertently not made along the abated lines. The amount of paint involved has been characterized as in the range of grams.
The licensee has notified both the NRC regional inspector and headquarters project manager.|
