| "During the Unit 1 Refuel and Inspection Outage, it has been determined that |
| the CRD check valves (CRD Seismic Island) exceeded the as-found minimum path |
| leakage limit of 508 ml/hr. This failure is a degraded condition found while |
| the plant is shutdown, and requires a 4 hour ENS notification under          |
| 10CFR50.72(b)(2)(i)."                                                        |
