SENECA, SC (AP) -
Federal regulators are set to discuss possible penalties for a nuclear plant in South Carolina.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission is meeting with officials from Duke Energy in Rockville, MD., over issues with fire protection systems at Oconee Nuclear Station near Seneca.
Last month, the NRC told Duke the company could possibly face civil penalties for failing to upgrade its methods on how to fight a fire at Oconee. The NRC says Duke didn't install certain firefighting systems as required by the end of 2012.
Duke asked for more time to complete the installation, but the NRC turned down that request.
Tuesday's meeting is open to the public.
