The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has proposed an $8,750 fine to G2 Consulting Group LLC for
two violations of NRC requirements associated with the control of NRC-regulated material.
The first violation involved the loss of a portable moisture density gauge containing radioactive
material. The gauge is used for measuring the moisture content and density of soil and aggregate.
The second violation involved the failure of the company to implement appropriate procedures
requiring the authorized user to log and return the gauge to a properly locked storage after use.
The NRC identified the proposed violations during a July 2021 inspection following the company’s
discovery that the gauge had been missing for six months. The NRC conducted its inspection at the
company’s offices in Troy and Ann Arbor, Michigan, and at temporary job sites in Troy and Canton,
G2 Consulting responded to the violations documenting its corrective actions to prevent recurrence
of the loss of a gauge.
The company has 30 days to pay the proposed penalty or contest the penalty in writing.
