Grand Gulf

Richard Brian Smith, a reactor operator at the Grand Gulf nuclear power station, was the subject of an order issued by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission which prohibits him from any NRC-licensed activities for the next five years.

The order was issued after Smith tested positive for an illegal substance twice during random fitness for duty tests while working at the Grand Gulf nuclear power plant.
