| THREE SPRINKLER SYSTEMS DECLARED INOPERABLE DUE TO CORRODED HEADS (24-hour   |
| report)                                                                      |

| "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.  It has been determined that    |
| this event is reportable under 10CFR76.120(c)(2) as an event in which        |
| equipment is disabled or fails to function as designed."  The NRC resident   |
| inspector has been notified of this event.                                   |

| "Two sprinkler heads on system D-1 in C-337 and two sprinkler heads on       |
| system 27 in C-335 were identified to also be corroded.  These were          |
| identified to the PSS on 06/03/99 at 1600 CDT and 1601 CDT, respectively,    |
| and determined to require an update to this report by the PSS.  It has been  |
| determined that this event is reportable under 10CFR76.120(c)(2) as an event |
| in which equipment is disabled or fails to function as designed."  Paducah   |
| personnel notified the NRC resident inspector of this update.  The NRC       |

| "Three sprinkler heads on system C-15 and five sprinkler heads on system B-8 |
| in C-333 were identified to also be corroded.  The PSS was notified of this  |
| condition at 1300 CDT on 06/17/99 and determined that an update to this      |
| report was required.  It has been determined that this event is reportable   |

| At 0900 on 11/02/99, a dye penetrant (PT) examination of the control rod     |
| drive seal housing for control rod #44 revealed a potential crack-like       |
| indication in the Reactor Coolant System pressure boundary.  The PT          |
| examination was performed to investigate a boric acid deposit on the         |
| exterior surface of the housing which was discovered during a previous       |
| visual inspection.  A small indication was also found on the seal housing    |
| for control rod #30.  The plant is in a refueling outage.  An investigation  |
| to characterize the indications and determine their cause and extent is in   |

| outboard main steam isolation valves (#B21-F022A and #B21-F028A).  This      |
| condition exceeded the acceptable leak rate.  The licensee is determining    |

| The licensee notified the Illinois Emergency Management Agency and the       |
| National Response Center of the presence of oil in the pea gravel around the |
| oil filling station underground storage tanks.  The oil was present in a two |
| inch layer of gravel at the top of the water table approximately five feet   |
| below ground level.  The filling station consists of a 10,000 gallon diesel  |
| fuel tank, a 10,000 gallon gasoline tank, and a 1,000 gallon waste oil tank. |
| No fire, explosion, or vapor hazards have been identified.  The tanks will   |
| continue to be excavated for State Fire Marshall inspection on 11/04/99.     |
| The oil laden pea gravel will be removed and disposed of properly.           |
|                                                                              |
