----------- [ Current event for PA_BeaverValley_1 ]

20180522 | PA_BeaverValley_1 | GAS VOIDS DISCOVERED IN BOTH TRAINS OF LOW HEAD SAFETY INJECTION |
https://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-colle...ml#en53419

"On 5/22/2018, while operating at approximately 100 percent power,
Ultrasonic Testing of the Beaver Valley Power Station (BVPS) Unit 1 Low Head Safety Injection (LHSI) pump suction piping
identified gas voids in excess of the acceptable limit for void volume.

Both trains of LHSI were declared inoperable.

Technical Specification (TS) 3.5.2 for both trains of the LHSI system was entered along with TS 3.0.3 which requires the initiation of a plant shutdown.

Time of TS entry was 12:56 (EDT).

"Plant shutdown was commenced at 15:56 (EDT) in accordance with plant procedures.

"At 15:59 (EDT) Train 'A' LHSI was restored to operable status, TS 3.0.3 Action was exited and the power reduction was stopped at approximately 99 percent.

[ They did something so the gas bubbles went away. Note the lack of detail as to what was done to correct the problem. Magic. ]

"At 17:43 (EDT) Train 'B' LHSI was restored to operable status, TS 3.5.2 Actions were exited.

"This is reportable per
10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(ii) Unanalyzed Condition,
10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(v) Event or Condition that Could Have Prevented the Fulfillment of a Safety Function
and 10 CFR 50. 72(b )(2)(i) TS Required Shutdown.

"The NRC Resident Inspector has been notified."

----------- [ Current event for NE_Cooper_1 ]

20180522 | NE_Cooper_1 | UNPLANNED PUBLIC NOTIFICATION DURING A DRILL |
https://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-colle...ml#en53416

"On 05/22/2018, Cooper Nuclear Station (CNS) was conducting an Emergency Response Organization (ERO) drill which included state and local involvement.

At approximately 09:00 CST Nebraska Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) inadvertently broadcasted CNS' declaration of a Notice of Unusual Event for the drill over the public scanner.

[ oops ]


This resulted in various members of the public or news media inquiring about the perceived event
or posting erroneous information via Twitter,television news outlets, newspapers, and radio stations.

These news outlets have been informed that CNS was conducting a drill and do not intend to release any stories regarding this event.
There is no evidence of a formal news release at this time.
However, due to the uncontrolled source of the information, the determination was made to make this report.

"This unplanned media event is a 4 hour report, in accordance with 10CFR50.72(b)(2)(xi).
This event is not significant with respect to the health and safety of the public.

"The licensee notified the NRC Resident Inspector."
