----------- [ Current event for MI_Fermi_2 ]

20180824 | MI_Fermi_2 | INOPERABLE SEISMIC MONITORING SYSTEM |
https://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-colle...ml#en53562

"At 0745 EDT on August 24, 2018, the Active Seismic Monitoring System failed a planned surveillance test and was declared inoperable.
Compensatory measures to provide alternative methods for event classification of a seismic event have been implemented in accordance
with the Fermi 2 Emergency Plan procedures. The compensatory measures include the use of information provided by the United States
Geological Survey (USGS) to confirm if an earthquake has occurred within a 100 mile radius.

"The loss of the Active Seismic Monitoring System is reportable to the NRC within 8 hours of discovery in accordance with 10CFR50.72(b)(3)(xiii).

"No seismic activity has been felt onsite and the USGS recorded no seismic activity in the area.

"The NRC Resident Inspector bas been notified."

* * * RETRACTION FROM JEFF GROFF TO VINCE KLCO ON SEPTEMBER 13, 2018 AT 1524 EDT * * *

"After further review the Active Seismic Monitoring system was removed from service for planned maintenance
for a duration less than 72 hours with appropriate compensatory measures established.

Therefore, no major loss of emergency assessment capability occurred. In addition,
the surveillance tests were re-performed and the Active Seismic Monitoring System was declared Operable.

Therefore, no reportable condition existed and EN 53562 reported on August 24, 20I8 is being retracted.

"The NRC Resident Inspector has been notified."

Notified the R3DO (Hanna).
