Apparently, it is quite common. Disgruntled employees.
No big deal at the donut shop..

Very big deal at a nuke plant.

If it is so common there are a lot of us that live too close, myself included.
At first I thought this was just a way to cover up and blame someone else for buying crappy parts from China, now I'm not so sure.

According to this...


Natural disasters, aging superstructure and sabotage...
Not what you want at nuclear facilities...
But, we got'em.



Report: FBI taking over sabotage case at California nuclear plant — Criminal charges possible — Employee: I’m not completely surprised, people do crazy things — Expert: Similar incidents around US

[snip]

[...] the plant operator found engine coolant had been poured into the oil reservoir of an emergency backup generator, which would have likely caused the generator to malfunction if needed to help cool the reactor during a power failure. [...]

David Lochbaum, a nuclear engineer and former employee of the NRC who leads the nuclear safety division of the Union of Concerned Scientists

[He] pointed to previous incidents of minor sabotage at the Browns Ferry plant in Alabama, the North Anna facility in Virginia, and other plants where disgruntled workers were known to have cut electrical wires, put coins in the lubricating oil cases for emergency diesel generators, and used super glue to fasten doors shut
