| "During performance of DIS 1300-07, Isolation Condenser Steam Condensate     |
| High Flow Switch Calibration, DP switch 3-1349A as found trip setpoint was   |
| outside of T.S. limits.  The as found value was -17.5 in WC and the T.S.     |
| limit is </= to 14.8 in WC.  Later in the same surveillance, DP switch       |
| 3-1349B as found trip setpoint was outside of T.S.  limit is </= 14.8 in WC. |
| These are the Div 1 and Div 2 Isolation Condenser Condensate High Flow       |
| isolation instruments.  With both these switches inop, the Isolation         |
| Condenser would not have isolated at the appropriate time on a valid high    |
| condensate flow signal.  The Isolation Condenser was already isolated when   |
| the out of tolerance switches were discovered and the switches were          |

| The licensee reported that one local power range monitor (LPRM) detector was |
| missing out of a shipment from GE Reuter-Stokes in Twinsburg, OH. The        |
| missing detector contains 0.00027g of U-235 (0.00121g total U) in the form   |
| of solid uranium oxide. The licensee has contacted the vendor to determine   |
| whether an error occurred in preparation of the shipping papers. The NRC     |
| resident inspector will be informed of this event by the licensee.           |
|                                                                              |

| At 1355, the licensee was informed that the missing LPRM detector is         |
| currently located at the GE Reuter-Stokes facility and had not been shipped. |
| The NRC resident inspector has been informed of this update. Notified R3DO   |
| (Jacobson).                                                                  |
