| The licensee reported that a Troxler Model 3411 nuclear moisture/density     |
| gauge containing 8 mCi of Cs-137 and 40 mCi of Am-241/Be (S/N 18561) was     |
| missing from the Sterling, VA area. A company employee, who resides in West  |
| Virginia, was scheduled to bring the gauge to a job site in the northern VA  |
| area on 7/11/2000, but failed to show up. Neither the individual, the        |
| company vehicle that he was using, nor the gauge can be located. The company |
| last had contact with the employee on 7/7/2000. The licensee did not believe |
| that the individual was a disgruntled employee. The licensee has contacted   |
| local law enforcement agencies regarding the missing individual and gauge.   |
|                                                                              |

| "2C" Service Water Pump (swing) motor was seen having smoke coming from it.  |
| On site fire brigade was sent out to the Service Water building and          |
| extinguished the fire at 1609 CT.  The licensee declared an Alert at 1625 CT |
| due to the potential of the fire affecting ECCS equipment.  No offsite       |
| assistance was needed and no other equipment onsite was damaged by the fire. |
| Service Water Pumps "2A", "2B", "2D", & "2E" remain in service.  All         |
| Emergency Core Cooling Systems are fully operable if needed.                 |
|                                                                              |
| Fire Alarm for Service Water pump was received in control room at 1548 CT.   |
| A  person was immediately dispatched to investigate the alarm. Person        |
| reported back to control room at 1552 CT that smoke was coming from "2C"     |
| Service Water motor.  Licensee entered AOP 29 (Plant Fire) at 1552 CT.  At   |
| 1555 CT "2C" Service Water Pump tripped for unknown reason.  Service Water   |
| pump flow was degraded for approximately 15 seconds at which time another    |
| Service Water pump was placed in service.  Lowest service water pressure     |
| reached was 70 psi (min pressure is 60 psi).  At 1609 CT  report received    |
| that fire had been extinguished using carbon dioxide.  1616 CT AOP 29 was    |
| exited.   The licensee notified state and local officials of entering Alert  |
| classification.                                                              |

| "At 1625 [CT] FNP staff declared an Alert Emergency classification based on  |
| criteria found in site procedures.  The 2C Service Water Pump motor had      |
| faulted resulting in a small fire in the Service Water Intake Structure.     |
| The Site Fire Brigade responded and the fire was extinguished promptly.  No  |
| other equipment was damaged.  The FNP Unit 2 Service Water system has 5      |
| pumps and requires 2 pumps per train (4 pumps total) to ensure that system   |
| design functions are met.  The 2C Service Water Pump is a swing pump that    |
| can be aligned to either train.  The remaining four Unit 2 Service Water     |

| "The FNP staff has assessed this event.  No plant personnel were injured and |
| only limited damage to plant equipment as described above occurred.  There   |
| was no affect on the health and safety of the general public and no release  |

| "Farley Nuclear Plant [(FNP)] is retracting the Alert Emergency Declaration  |
| that occurred at 1625 CDT and was terminated at 1736 CDT on August 16, 2000. |
| FNP Staff personnel made this declaration based on a conservative            |
| interpretation of the classification requirements in their internal site     |
| procedures.  The site procedure requires an Alert Classification to be       |
| declared when a fire occurs that potentially affects Emergency Core Cooling  |
| Systems (ECCS).  The Service Water System supplies cooling water to ECCS     |
| components, and therefore, when a 2C Service Water Pump motor fault occurred |
| requiring site fire brigade response, FNP staff felt that the most           |
| appropriate and conservative approach was to declare the Alert               |
| Classification."                                                             |
|                                                                              |
| "Subsequently, [the] FNP Staff determined that while there was a fire        |
| internal to the motor casing of the 2C Service Water Pump, the ECCS was not  |
| affected since the required number of Service Water pumps remained available |
| to support ECCS operation.  Although a fire in a vital area represents a     |
| potential safety hazard, this fire did not rise to the level of safety       |
| hazard warranting an Alert Emergency Classification.  [The] FNP Staff now    |
| believes that no classification should have been declared, and we are        |
| retracting this event notification."                                         |
|                                                                              |
| The licensee notified the Alabama Department of the Emergency Management,    |
| Georgia Emergency Management Agency, Florida Division of Emergency           |
| Management , and other appropriate local officials.  The licensee has also   |
| notified the NRC resident inspector.  In addition, the licensee plans to     |
| issue a press release on Monday (08/21/00).                                  |

| In early May 2000, Agilent Technologies shipped two(2) 15 mCi Ni-63 sources  |
| to Sandia Lab located in Albuquerque, NM.  The Lab had only ordered one(1)   |
| source.  When the second source arrived the Sandia shipping department       |
| notified their accounting staff who directed that they return the item to    |
| Agilent.  Agilent was not informed of the error nor was a return             |
| authorization or FEDEX tracking number obtained.  Agilent has no record of   |
| receiving the returned source.  The missing source is an electron capture    |
| detector Model #G2397A, S/N U2216 [general license].  The RSO was informed   |
| of the incident on 7/19 and determined that the error occurred due to a      |
| problem with the FEDEX labeling system.   Agilent shipping department        |
| prepared a separate label for the first shipment since their FEDEX labeling  |
| system  was not available that morning.  When the labeler was restored, a    |
| label was prepared which resulted in a second shipment to Sandia.  FEDEX was |
| informed of the missing shipment by Sandia personnel.                        |

| At approximately 1300 on 08/18/00, a Humbolt soil moisture density gauge     |
| (model #5001C, serial number 1852) was stolen from a jobsite located in      |
| Hillside, New Jersey.  Apparently, the gauge was locked inside its case, and |
| the case was located inside an unlocked truck.  It was reported that the     |
| gauge user entered and exited a trailer and discovered the gauge to be       |
| missing after exiting the trailer.                                           |

| The gauge contained cesium-137 and americium-241/beryllium sources.  The     |
| activity levels of the sources were not known at the time of this            |
| notification.                                                                |
