WATERFORD, Conn. (AP) - The Nuclear Regulatory Commission says it has identified three apparent violations from 2011 at the Millstone nuclear power complex in Waterford.

Two of the violations are being considered for escalated enforcement.

An agency spokesman told The Day of New London on Friday that one finding involved a “willful violation” regarding changes made to a safety report that left out information, making it “not complete and accurate.”

Spokesman Neil Sheehan said NRC staff found the violations at Unit 2 during a review of a license amendment request, made by Millstone owner Dominion.

Millstone spokesman Ken Holt called the apparent violations “historical in nature” and said they “do not reflect our current performance.”

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy issued a statement calling the apparent violations “simply unacceptable” and urged Dominion to fully cooperate.
