| "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.                                 |
|                                                                              |

| UNUSUAL EVENT DECLARED DUE TO A FREON LEAK FROM A CONTROL ROOM CHILLER INTO  |
| THE AUXILIARY BUILDING                                                       |
|                                                                              |
| The licensee declared the unusual event at 2133 on 09/29/99 due to a release |
| of toxic gas (a Freon leak) deemed to be detrimental to safe operation of    |
| the plant.  No radiological release is in progress.  The 33' wind direction  |
| is from 146 at 17.9 miles per hour.  There were no protective actions       |
| recommended.                                                                 |
|                                                                              |
| At 2117 hours on 09/29/99, the 'B' control room ventilation train chiller    |
| tripped resulting in an automatic start of the 'A' control room ventilation  |
| train.  The trip was the direct result of a major freon leak dispersing into |
| the auxiliary building.  All non-essential personnel were evacuated from the |
| auxiliary building.  An Unusual Event was declared at 2133 hours on 09/29/99 |
| in accordance with Emergency Classification Guidance Section 9.4.1.B,        |
| release of toxic gas deemed detrimental to safe operation of the plant.  No  |
| personnel injuries have occurred, and all access to the auxiliary building   |
| is being controlled until follow-up actions are complete.                    |
|                                                                              |
| The 'A' control room vent train is currently in service.  There is no        |
| indication of any freon in the control room, and the control room was not    |
| placed on recirculation.                                                     |
|                                                                              |
| The licensee plans to terminate the Unusual Event when the freon leak is     |
| isolated and when air levels in the auxiliary building are restored to       |
| normal.                                                                      |
|                                                                              |
| The licensee stated that the emergency response data system (ERDS) has not   |
| been activated because ERDS is down for the performance of Y2K upgrades.     |
|                                                                              |
| The licensee notified the NRC resident inspector, the states of Delaware and |
| New Jersey, and the Lower Alloways Creek Township.                           |
|                                                                              |

| The leak was terminated because the full freon charge in the chiller         |
| dispersed (2,200 pounds), and the atmosphere in the auxiliary building has   |
| been restored to normal.  As a result, the licensee terminated the Unusual   |
| Event at 0158 hours on 09/30/99.                                             |

| Electrical maintenance was removing a spare breaker in the "B" train 480     |
| volt switchgear (XSW-1DB1).  This cubicle is directly above the breaker      |
| cubicle for the "B" RHR pump breaker.  During the maintenance activity, a    |
| breaker transport cart inadvertently rolled against the supply breaker for   |
| the "B" RHR pump.  The lip of the cart activated the manual closing          |
| mechanism, on the front of the RHR pump breaker.  This resulted in starting  |
| the "B" RHR pump.  The pump ran for approximately six minutes before being   |
| secured, and placed in the pull-to-lock (PTL) position after it was verified |
| that no valid demand signal was present.  The pump remained in PTL for 29    |
| minutes while the investigation continued.                                   |

| At 1906 EDT on 9/30/99 a reactor scram occurred due to a turbine trip and    |
| generator lockout.  During the transient three safety relief valves opened   |
| momentarily due to high reactor pressure and then reseated.  Reactor         |
| pressure peaked at approximately 1125 psi.  Additionally Group II and III    |
| Primary Containment Isolation System (PCIS) isolations occurred due to low   |
| reactor water level following the scram.  Minimum reactor level following    |
| the scram was approximately -15 inches.  All control rods fully inserted.    |
| Post scram recovery was normal and all scram and PCIS signals have been      |
| reset.  The licensee is investigating the cause of the reactor               |
| trip/generator lockout.                                                      |

| The unit was in the process of a normal plant shut down for a refueling      |
| outage when the running Main Feedwater pump (MFP-2A) tripped.  The tripping  |
| of the only running feedwater pump caused Emergency Feedwater to actuate     |
| (EFP-1 and EFP-2).  The plant did not experience any abnormal changes in     |
| OTSG level or other systems.  The cause of the MFP trip is unknown at this   |
| time.  The "B" MFP (MFP-2B) was started and emergency feedwater secured and  |
| reset.                                                                       |

| The licensee informed the NRC resident inspector.                            |
