| MAIN CONTROL ROOM HVAC EMERGENCY VENTILATION DECLARED INOPERABLE             |
|                                                                              |
| "During performance of scheduled monthly surveillance testing, it was        |
| determined that overall differential pressure on the Main Control Room HVAC  |
| Emergency Ventilation Train Air Filtration Unit (AFU) was out of             |
| specification high. The AFU is a single train system required to provide     |
| habitable conditions for control room personnel during design basis accident |
| conditions. This condition is reportable under the requirements of SAF 1.17  |
| 'Could alone have prevented safety function.'  and 10CFR50.72(b). This       |
| condition places both Units in a 7 day shutdown LCO."                        |
