----------- [ Current event for LA_Waterford_3 ]

20190411 | LA_Waterford_3 | CONTROL ROOM ENVELOPE INOPERABLE DUE TO DOOR HANDLE DETACHING |
https://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-colle...ml#en53991

"On April 11, 2019, at 0200 CDT the shift operating crew declared the control room envelope inoperable
in accordance with Technical Specification (TS) 3.7.6.1 due to the door handle for Door 86 (H&V Airlock Access Door) being detached.
{ H&V - heating and ventilation ? maybe the handle got broke off during equipment moving. ]


Operations entered TS 3.7.6.1 action b,

which requires that with one or more control room emergency air filtration trains inoperable
due to inoperable control room envelope boundary in MODES 1, 2, 3, or 4,

then:
1. Immediately initiate action to implement mitigating actions;
2. Within 24 hours, verify mitigating actions ensure control room envelope occupant exposures
    to radiological, chemical, and smoke hazards will not exceed limits; and
3. Within 90 days, restore the control room envelope boundary to OPERABLE status.

Action b.1 was completed by sealing the hole in Door 86 at 0232 CDT.
[ It's unclear if they used the sillyputty or duct tape from the emergency repair kit. ]

This event is reportable pursuant to 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(v)(D),
'event or condition that could have prevented fulfilment of a safety function of structures or systems
that are needed to (D) mitigate the consequences of an accident,
' due to the control room envelope being inoperable.

"The licensee notified the NRC Resident."
