Radiation Protection Deficiencies at Lawrence Livermore Lab (2003)
The Department of Energy issued a Preliminary Notice of Violation (PNOV) to the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), which is operated by the University of California, for radiation protection deficiencies associated with purification work conducted at the lab in June 2002 that resulted in significant radiological overexposure to one worker. Although LLNL is exempt from civil penalty by statute, the DOE would have issued a civil penalty in the amount of $137,500.
