NRC Seeks Comments on Draft Guidance for Water-Control Structures

The NRC has re-issued draft regulatory guide DG-1245, Design and Inspection Criteria for Water-Control Structures Associated with Nuclear Power Plants. The draft guidance would update regulatory guide (RG) 1.127, which was issued in 1978, to incorporate changes to federal safety and inspection guidelines for dams and other water-control structures. The NRC initially sought comment on DG-1245 in March 2011. Since then, NRC staff has rewritten the draft guidance to more clearly identify the scope of its applicability, and so the NRC is seeking another round of public comment. Comments are due on March 24, 2015.
