----------- [ Current event for AL_Farley_1 ]

20180516 | AL_Farley_1 | Update TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS REQUIRED SHUTDOWN DUE TO INOPERABLE MAIN STEAM ISOLATION VALVE |
https://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-colle...ml#en53290

* * * UPDATE FROM DOUGLAS HOBSON TO KEN MOTT AT 0202 EDT ON 5/16/18 * * *

"This EN [event notification] is being updated to clarify the reporting criteria as 'Voluntary'.

Farley Technical Specification 3.7.2 allows continuous operation in MODE 2 with an INOPERABLE MSIV as long as the other MSIV
in the affected Main Steam Line is closed. The initiation of the shutdown was performed as a prudent action to repair
and restore OPERABILITY of the affected MSIV and was not a requirement of the Farley Technical Specifications."

The licensee notified the NRC Resident Inspector.

The R2DO (Masters) was notified.
