SUBJECT:  TRANSMITTAL OF NUREG-0909 RELATIVE TO THE GINNA TUBE RUPTURE 
          (Generic Letter No. 82-08) 

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). You should review the information for applicability to
your facility. 

In addition, you should ensure that the information in NUREG-0909 is made 
available to your plant staff as part of your training program under TMI 
Action Plan Item I.C.5, Feedback of Operating Experience to Plant Staff. 

                                   Sincerely, 


                                   Darrell G. Eisenhut, Director 
                                   Division of Licensing 
                                   Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation
