| 2 SETS OF CALIBRATION SOURCES DISCOVERED MISSING                             |
|                                                                              |
| "At 10 AM on August 31, 2000 Global Nuclear Fuel - Americas determined that  |
| two sets of instrument calibration sources are missing following a thorough  |
| search. Each source set contains four metal disks electroplated with Pu-239, |
| Total activity contained in both source sets is approximately 1.7            |
| microcuries. The sources had been sent to a vendor for calibration           |
| re-certification.                                                            |
|                                                                              |
| "The sources were unaccounted for during a routine source inventory at       |
| GNF-A. The vendor performing the calibration recertification last accounted  |
| for the sources when shipped on August 2, 2000. Records of the common        |
| carrier which transported the sources from the vendor to GNF-A indicate the  |
| material was shipped as an excepted package limited quantity and delivered   |
| to GNF-A on August 7. 2000. The inner packaging and each source are marked   |
| with radioactive warning labels. There is no measurable radiation dose rate  |
| from this type of package. A search of likely locations at GNFA has been     |
| conducted with negative results.                                             |
|                                                                              |
| "This event is reportable pursuant to 10CFR20.2201, 10CFR70.52 and           |
| 10CFR74.11. Efforts to locate the sources continue."                         |

| On September 21, 2001, the licensee found the missing sources in the         |

| and terminated at 0910 on 10/30/2001 at Sequoyah Nuclear Plant due to an     |
| unplanned radiological release.  At 0640 on 10/30/2001 count rate on         |
| 0-RM-90-212, the Station Discharge Rad Monitor, reached the alarm setpoint   |
| of 600 CPM.  An initial Chem Lab sample taken at 0720 indicated no abnormal  |
| activity.  A followup sample completed at 0802 confirmed activity in the     |
| Turbine Building Sump.  The Chem Lab samples confirmed the validity of this  |
| alarm and the REP declaration requirements were met.  At 0810 the release    |
| was terminated by isolating the station sump and realigning to the Low       |
| Volume Waste Treatment Pond.  Readings on 0-RM-90-212 are slowly trending up |
| at present 39000 CPM.  Investigation is in progress to determine and correct |
| the source.  Detailed sample analysis are also in progress to identify the   |
| magnitude and nuclides involved in this release.  Followup information will  |
| be provided when available."  State and Local officials were notified of     |

| HPCI DECLARED INOPERABLE                                                     |

| "On 10/30/2001 with DAEC operating in Mode 1 at 100% power, the plant was in |
| the following LCOs for preplanned maintenance on the 'A' Loop of RHR and     |
| RHRSW subsystems: Day 1 of 7 for the LPCI system; Day 1 of 7 for the 'A'     |
| Loop of RHRSW; Day 1 of 7 for the 'A' Loop of Torus Cooling; Day 1 of 30 for |
| the 'A' Loop of Drywell Sprays; Day 1 of 30 for the 'A' Loop of Torus        |
| Sprays.                                                                      |
|                                                                              |
| "At 1820, the HPCI system was declared inoperable due to a Oil leak on the   |
| HPCI oil system. A 14 day, 7 day, and 72 hour LCOs were entered per          |
| Technical Specifications conditions 3.5.1.F, 3.5.1.G and 3.5.1.H.            |
|                                                                              |
| "The unplanned HPCI system inoperability is reportable under                 |
| 50.72(b)(3)(v)(D) and 50.73(a)(2)(v)(D) as a failure of a single train of    |
| equipment required to mitigate the consequence of an accident.               |
|                                                                              |
| "On 10/29/2001, system engineering personnel discovered a small oil leak on  |
| the HPCI oil system. During work planning walkdowns with maintenance         |
| personnel on 10/30/2001, the leak located under insulation lagging on the 38 |
| psig portion of the HPCI oil system at 3/4" swagelock fitting was determined |
| to be 90 drops per minute. HPCI was declared inoperable at 1820 on           |
| 10/30/2001. Maintenance is in progress to repair the 3/4" fitting.           |
|                                                                              |
| "The DAEC PSA computer model Sentinel was used to determine the risk         |
| significance of having the 'A' RHR, 'A' RHRSW and HPCI systems inoperable at |
| the same time. The initial CDF for having the 'A' Loop of RHR and RHRSW      |
| inoperable was 1.602E-5. With the HPCI, RHR and RHRSW systems inoperable,    |
| the CDF value was determined to increase to 2.390E-5 which would still be    |
| considered a green status."                                                  |
|                                                                              |
