| AT 1232 CT, the Point Beach Nuclear Plant ERDS became inoperable as a result |
| of modifications to change out the plant process computer system (PPCS).     |
| This is a planned evolution.  ERDS will remain inoperable until              |
| approximately, December 18, 2001.                                            |
|                                                                              |
| This information was verbally provided to a representative of NRR during the |
| week of 10/15/2001.  The senior resident inspector has also been briefed on  |
| the modifications and schedule.  NMC to NRC letter (NRC 01-0080) dated       |
| 11/21/2001 stated we would be submitting this Non-Emergency report.          |
