ATHENS, AL (WAFF) -

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has cited the Tennessee Valley Authority's Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant for a safety violation.

Federal regulators said the plant did not maintain staffing levels in the control room. The government watchdog group said proper staffing is necessary in case of an emergency.

TVA officials said the staffing issue was an oversight.

The NRC said TVA has agreed to make changes to prevent the problem from happening again.
