SUBJECT:  TRANSMITTAL OF NUREG-0909 RELATIVE TO THE GINNA TUBE RUPTURE

On January 25, 1982, the R. E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant experienced a 
rupture of a steam generator tube. Shortly after the event, Chairman 
Palladino directed that a task force be established to gather and report on 
the factual information surrounding the event. 

The task force has now completed its investigation and has documented the 
factual information and their findings associated with the event (See 
Enclosed NUREG-0909). 

This report is being provided for your information only. 

                                   Sincerely,
