WASHINGTON - The Nuclear
Regulatory Commission told operators
of 34 atomic power plants yesterday to
beware of the kinds of mistakes and
breakdowns that plunged the Three
Mile Island plant to the brink of
The NRC had already issued new or-
ders, shortly after the March 28 ac-
cident near Harrisburg, Pa., to the
operators of the nine nuclear plants
designed by Three Mile Island's build-
er, Babcock & Wilcox. The new direc-
tive went to 34 plants designed by
Westinghouse Corp. and Combustion
Engineering Corp. Three of the reac-
tors are inMichigan.
THE MICHIGAN plants involved in
yesterday's directive are Consumer
Power Co.'s Palisades facility near
South Haven and Indiana & Michigan
Electric Co.'s Donald C. Cook Units 1
and 2 at Bridgman.
The commission told operators of
pressurized water reactors to make
sure they understand what went wrong
at Three Mile Island on March 28-- in-
cluding "the extreme seriousness and
consequences" of decisions made in the
frantic early seconds of the accident.
A commission staff investigation of
the accident concluded that human
error, as well as problems with design
and procedure, combined to turn a
pump failure into a nuclear emergency.
THE COMMISSION said yesterday
workers should not override automatic
controls at nuclear plants without
knowing exactly what activated the
controls, and should not make
emergency decisions based on reading
only one instrument.
The commission said nuclear;
operators should recognize the threat of
interruption of the cooling water flow
and write procedures to prevent that or"
to counteract a cooling water loss in arm
The commission told operators to;
report back in two weeks outlining how;
they will comply with the directive.
