| The plant sustained a main turbine trip on steam generator high level, cause |
| under review.  The turbine trip caused a main feedwater trip which caused an |
| automatic start of the 21 and 23 auxiliary feedwater pumps, as designed.     |
| The licensee review of the event determined, later in the evening, that the  |
| pump starts were reportable under 10 CFR 50.72(b)(2)(ii).                    |
|                                                                              |
