| ESF ACTUATION - OUTBOARD RECIRC SAMPLE VALVE CLOSED                          |
|                                                                              |
| During performance of Main Steam Isolation Valve Functional Test             |
| 0255-07-IA-2, the outboard recirc sample valve CV-2791 closed due to         |
| activation of a Group I isolation signal.  The procedure step de-energized   |
| the DC power to verify that the outboard main steam isolation valves would   |
| remain open with AC power.  However, the procedure did not recognize that    |
| the other Group I outboard valves would close when DC power was              |
| interrupted.                                                                 |
