| "On 06/02/99 at 1630 CDT, the Plant Shift Superintendent (PSS) was notified  |
| that numerous sprinkler heads were corroded, affecting 16 sprinkler systems  |
| in C-337 and one system in C-333, such that the ability of the sprinklers to |
| flow sufficient water was called into question.  Subsequently, these         |
| sprinkler systems were declared inoperable, and TSR-required actions         |
| establishing roving fire patrols were initiated.  This deficiency was        |
| detected during scheduled system inspections conducted by Fire Protection    |
| personnel.  Currently, functionality of the sprinkler heads has not been     |
| fully evaluated by Fire Protection personnel, and the remaining cascade      |
| buildings are currently being inspected, and if necessary, this report will  |
| be updated to identify any additional areas.                                 |
|                                                                              |

| FAILURE OF 13 HIGH PRESSURE FIRE WATER SPRINKLER SYSTEMS TO MEET SYSTEM      |
| OPERABILITY REQUIREMENTS  (24-Hour Report)                                   |
|                                                                              |
| The following text is a portion of a facsimile received from Portsmouth:     |
|                                                                              |
| "On 08/10/99 at approximately 1600 hours, the Plant Shift Superintendent     |
| (PSS) was notified that 13 sprinkler systems associated with the High        |
| Pressure Fire Water (HPFW) system were not capable of meeting system         |
| operability requirements.  This condition was discovered as a result of an   |
| engineering review of individual sprinkler heads that had previously been    |
| identified as exhibiting corrosion around the valve seat.  The engineering   |
| review was conducted following the discovery that similar corrosion problems |
| experienced at the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant resulted in sprinkler     |
| heads being unable to actuate at normal pressure.  An initial screening of   |
| PORTS sprinkler heads known to exhibit corrosion was conducted, and systems  |
| where the potential for two or more adjacent heads to be corroded were       |
| inspected.  This identified 11 systems in the X-333 and 2 systems in the     |
| X-326 that did not meet the sprinkler system operability requirement that no |
| two adjacent sprinkler heads be inoperable."                                 |
|                                                                              |
| "The PSS declared the affected sprinkler systems inoperable, and TSR         |
| required actions were completed.  Further inspections of sprinkler systems   |
| are planned.  This report will be updated if additional sprinkler systems    |
| are determined to be inoperable."                                            |

| "On 08/26/99, Susquehanna Unit 1 and Unit 2 were operating at 100% power     |
| with the 'B' loop of emergency service water [(ESW)] out of service for      |
| scheduled maintenance.  During testing on the ESW system, with all ESW pumps |
| in service, it was identified that the 'C' and 'D' ESW pumps' discharge      |
| check valves were closed.  The ESW flow surveillance was performed, and the  |
| 'C' and 'D' ESW pumps failed to achieve the required flow and were declared  |
| inoperable.  Concurrently, the 'B' loop of ESW was returned to service.      |
| During the time the 'B' ESW loop was inoperable, the 'A' ESW pump was the    |
| only one operable ESW pump.  This constitutes a serious degradation of the   |
| plant in that it is a condition which is outside of design basis and,        |
| therefore, reportable under 10 CFR 50.72(b)(1)(ii) requiring a 1-hour ENS    |
| notification."                                                               |

| AMMONIUM NITRATE WAS PUMPED FROM A MISIDENTIFIED RAIL CAR INTO A TANK        |
| CONTAINING HYDROCHLORIC  ACID.  THE RESULTING REACTION PRODUCED "AQUA REGIA" |
| WHICH IS A MIXURE OF CORROSIVE AND TOXIC GASES [SEE NORTH AMERICAN EMERGENCY |
| RESPONSE GUIDE #157].   ACCORDING TO A PLANT ENGINEER AT CARGILL, THE ERROR  |
| OCCURRED AT APPROXIMATELY 1000CDT.  A PLUME WAS GENERATED BUT HAD MOSTLY     |
| DISSIPATED BEFORE CROSSING THE FACILITY BOUNDARY.  THE REACTION CONTINUED    |
| FOR ABOUT 1 TO 1-1/2 HOURS.  FIFTEEN (15) CARGILL EMPLOYEES WERE TAKEN TO    |
| LOCAL MEDICAL FACILITIES FOR OBSERVATION ALTHOUGH ONLY THREE (3) WERE        |
| ACTUALLY EXPOSED TO THE MATERIAL.  ALL FIFTEEN WERE SUBSEQUENTLY RELEASED.   |
| BRIEFING PARTICIPANTS INCLUDED THE R4DO (HARRELL), NRR EO (LYONS), IRO       |

| "The subject event involved the U.S. Ecology Brokerage division truck and    |
| driver on-loading a shipment consisting of a source drum at CTL Engineering, |
| Columbus, OH.   Receipt surveys performed at the NMMC denoted an on-contact  |
| reading of 450 mR per hour (i.e., greater than the reportable 200 mR per     |
| hour) at a single point on the bottom of the truck.  The location of the     |

| "After on-loading the subject source drum, the truck made eight more stops   |
| throughout the mid-west (i.e., OH, MI, IL, IN) over a period of 7 days, with |
| each stop ranging in duration between approximately  hour and 4 hours per   |
| stop.  Interviews with the driver indicate that each stop was in an          |
| industrial location with no notable personnel activity (i.e., occupancy)     |
| around the truck. The driver also noted that he makes a conscious effort to  |
| park away from others when making nightly stops. Therefore, he did not note  |

| PART 21 NOTIFICATION INVOLVING UNACCEPTABLE RETENTION CAPABILITY FOR BNC     |
| CONNECTORS                                                                   |

| "In accordance with the requirements for basic components regulated by the   |
| Nuclear Regulatory Commission, as specified in 10 CFR 21.21, I am providing  |
| this notification.  In June 1999, the reliability engineer with the 'systems |
| group' department of our company sent me a memo that suggested we might have |
| accepted an unacceptable part for the 30-4 connector, which is a regulated   |
| component.  He had connected an AMP BNC connector to a cable to determine    |
| its equivalency to the other qualified part from Amphenol p/n 31-2.  He      |
| found that when the wires were combed out as directed on the instructions    |
| that came with the AMP connector, it did not appear to perform correctly     |
| with respect to cable retention, and [he] asked if someone in QA could       |
| verify his preliminary testing.                                              |
|                                                                              |
| "Subsequently, our Quality Manager examined the connector and obtained       |
| instructions from the manufacturer that said the wires should be left        |
| braided, not combed out, and that if you left it braided, a stronger grip    |
| was achieved.  The reliability engineer tried the braided connection and did |
| find that the retention was improved.  However, in investigating the matter  |
| further with the manufacturer, it was found that the manufacturer did have   |
| conflicting instructions but said the drawing specifying a braided           |
| connection should be considered the official one since it was a controlled   |
| document.  It was also found that the part from AMP was not the originally   |
| qualified part number - 221552-1.  AMP had obsoleted that part in 1992 and   |
| substituted the 221265-0 in its place.  The new part, however, did not carry |
| a military specification for shock (MIL-Std. 202) and was not military type  |
| UG-88 like the previous one - conditions which provided assurance that it    |
| met certain criteria needed for Seismic Class 1 rating.  This information    |
| was presented at the company's Quality Review Meeting on August 12, 1999.  A |
| technical evaluation was conducted and reported in an abstract for the 30-4  |
| BNC Connector by the reliability engineer on August 26, 1999.                |
|                                                                              |
| "The connectors for part 30-4 that were in stock were inspected, and it was  |
| found that all of them were this incorrect AMP part number.  The connectors  |
| were subsequently put on hold by the Quality Manager, and correct connectors |
| have been ordered from Amphenol.                                             |
|                                                                              |
| "One hundred pieces of the incorrect part (AMP 1-221265) were received at    |
| Victoreen (now a part of Inovision) in January 1997.  A search has been      |
| conducted to identify those parts, assemblies, and kits which list part 30-4 |
| as part of their bill of material.  From those, a review will be done to     |
| identify those that have been produced since the receipt of the incorrect    |
| part and, therefore, have the potential for being incorrect.  The customers  |
| who have received the identified products will be sent a notification within |
| 30 days.  If acceptable replacement parts can be obtained with that time     |
| frame, they will be sent with the notification.                              |
|                                                                              |
| "A notification was sent to the Plant Manager/Senior Executive and to the    |
| Chief Operating Officer of Inovision on August 26, 1999.  The Plant Manager  |
| has authorized me to submit this report by facsimile to the NRC Operations   |
| Center.  A written report containing the information specified at 10 CFR     |
| 21.21(d)(4) will be submitted to the NRC within 30 days."                    |
|                                                                              |

| PLANT OPERATORS OPENED THE SITE STORM DRAIN COLLECTOR BASIN DISCHARGE VALVES |
