----------- [ Current event for MN_Monticello_1 ]

20190611 | MN_Monticello_1 | NORMALLY CLOSED PRIMARY CONTAINMENT ISOLATION VALVES FOUND IN THE OPEN POSITION |
https://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-colle...ml#en54111


"At 1132 CDT on 6/11/2019,
both manual primary containment isolation valves in a one-inch service air line were found open.

This resulted in an open primary containment penetration.

Both valves are required to be closed for Primary Containment Isolation Valve Operability.

Both valves were closed and independently verified closed at 1149 CDT on 6/11/2019.


"This is being reported under 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(v)© and (D), and 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(ii)(B).

"There was no impact to the health and safety of the public or plant personnel.
[
 Simply because there was no incident.
 Had there been a need for primary containment isolation the potential for release of contaminants
 was there. This unit recently went thru an RFO cycle so chances are it was left open from that.

 This is an example of Nuclear Incompetence. 


The people that opened the valves forgot to close them.
 The people who supervised them forgot to supervise.
 The people who regulate forgot to regulate.

 No one forgot to cash their paychecks.  

]

The NRC Resident Inspector has been notified."

The licensee also notified the State of Minnesota State Duty Officer.

"At 1324 CDT, on 6/11/19, Coffey County Emergency Management issued the following alert:

"The Civil Authorities have issued a Nuclear Power Plant Warning for Coffey,
KS beginning at 1323 CDT and ending at 1423 CDT (WIBW radio AM/FM).

as the offsite response capabilities remain functional.
[
 More Nuclear Incompetence.  

 There is an impact to the health and safety of the public, to wit,
 at some future emergency notification where minuites count,
 the public will waste precious time trying to determine if the alert is real
 or just another mistake.

]

"This event is being reported under 10 CFR 50.72(b)(2)(xi),
as an inadvertent notification of the IPAWS [Integrated Public Alert Warning System] system.
