| "On 7/5/00 at 1105, a potentially contaminated worker was taken offsite by   |
| ambulance to John Warner Hospital in Clinton, Illinois. The worker, an       |
| Electrician, was working on the Fuel Building bridge on 755' Fuel Building   |
| when he passed out.  The Electrician was working in a potentially            |
| contaminated area.  Radiation Protection personnel accompanied the           |
| electrician to the hospital but were not able to verify that he was not      |
| contaminated at the time he left site to be taken to the hospital. The       |
| electrician regained consciousness while on the Fuel Building bridge. At     |
| 1132, Radiation Protection personnel frisked the electrician at the hospital |
| and found no contamination on the individual or his clothing. This           |
| notification is being made pursuant to 10CFR50.72(b)(2)(v), Offsite          |
| Medical."                                                                    |

| REACTOR CORE COOLING SYSTEM ISOLATION DURING A SURVEILLANCE                  |
|                                                                              |
| "On 7/5/2000 at 0920 CDT, the Reactor Core Isolation Cooling (RCIC) System   |
| isolated due to a sensed high steam supply line differential pressure.       |
| Instrument technicians were performing required surveillance test            |
| STP-207-4248 on Division 1 pressure transmitter, E51-PDTN084A. This          |
| surveillance requires the transmitter to be hydraulically isolated from the  |
| system in order to perform a calibration and also generates a Division 1     |
| RCIC Isolation signal.                                                       |
|                                                                              |
| Per the plant design, the Division 1 and 2 pressure transmitters share a     |
| common sensing line.  While removing the Division 1 transmitter from         |
| service, the Division 2 transmitter, E51-PDTN084B, spiked high causing a     |
| Division 2 RCIC isolation signal and subsequent closure of E51-MOVF063, RCIC |
| Steam Supply Inboard Isolation Valve.                                        |
|                                                                              |
| Although the RCIC system was inoperable for scheduled maintenance at the     |
| time of the Division 2 isolation, the containment isolation function was     |
| still in service and considered operable. High Pressure Core Spray and all   |
| other ECCS systems remained operable while the RCIC system was isolated.     |
| RCIC will be returned to service following the completion of the scheduled   |
| maintenance activities.                                                      |
|                                                                              |
| The RCIC System Isolation Instrumentation is designated as an Engineered     |
| Safety Features system and this event is therefore reportable in accordance  |
| with 10CFR50.72."                                                            |

| The plant had a reactor trip from 100% power due to a turbine trip.  Cause   |

| and no relief valves lifted or ECCS actuated.  The plant is stable in mode 3 |

| radiological releases and no RCS or steam generator tube leaks.  All safety  |
| related equipment functioned as required and remains operable.  The aux feed |
| system started as expected and decay heat is being removed via the steam     |
| bypass system to the condenser.                                              |
