| SAFETY EQUIPMENT FAILURE - PROCESS GAS LEAK DETECTION FAILURE                |
|                                                                              |
| "At 2200 CST, on 02-15-02 the Plant Shift Superintendent (PSS) was notified  |
| of a failure of the Process Gas Leak Detector (PGLD) system in the C-333     |
| building.  During above atmospheric operation a PGLD alarm was received in   |
| the Area Control Room [ACR] on C-333 Unit 4 Cell 4.  An operator responded   |
| to the local cell panel to investigate according to the alarm response       |
| procedure.  Upon arriving at the cell panel the operator discovered that the |
| Ready light was not Illuminated on the PGLD panel.  At this time the         |
| operator attempted to test fire the PGLD system, however the system would    |
| not respond. The Front Line Mgr. and the PSS were immediately notified of    |
| the system failure.  At this time, required TSR 2.4.4.1 LCO continuous smoke |
| watches were put in place in the affected areas until repair of the system   |
| was completed.  Following replacement of the power supply by Instrument      |
| Maintenance and testing by Operations, ten Unit 4 Cell 4 PGLD system was     |
| declared operable by the PSS at 2340 CST. At this time the TSR required      |
| smoke watches were discontinued.                                             |
|                                                                              |
| "The PGLD system is designed to detect the leakage of process gas from the   |
| process system and is required to be operable while operating in Cascade     |
| Mode 2 (Above Atmospheric Pressure).  Due to the failure of this TSR         |
| required system; the PSS has determined that this is reportable as a 24 hour |
| Event Report.                                                                |
|                                                                              |

| "This event has been retracted. Even though the power loss causes the system |
| to be incapable of annunciating additional alarms from this system in the    |
| ACR, the same is true when a PGLD head actuates in response to smoke. The    |
| system Is designed to alert operators of a release or loss of system power.  |
| Operator response and the initiation of a smoke watch provide the safety     |
| function after the initial alarm is annunciated. The NRC resident inspector  |
| has been notified of this update."                                           |

| AGREEMENT STATE REPORT INVOLVING POTENTIAL SALE OF CONTAMINATED
TOOLS TO THE |
| GENERAL PUBLIC                                                               |
|                                                                              |
| The Utah Department of Environmental Quality issued an Information Notice on |
| February 21, 2002, (text below)  concerning the potential of radiologically  |
| contaminated tools in Tooele County.                                         |
|                                                                              |
| "A recent investigation involving Envirocare of Utah, a commercial low-level |
| radioactive waste site in western Tooele County, has revealed that a former  |
| employee of Envirocare's contractor, Broken Arrow Inc., removed contaminated |
| tools that were to be disposed of as waste from the Envirocare facility and  |
| eventually sold the tools to Oquirrh Trading Company, a pawn shop located in |
| Tooele, Utah.  Records of the Trading Company have revealed the potential    |
| for a number of tools to have been sold to the public.  The period of time   |
| of concern is from January to December 2001.  The tools involved may include |
| large ratchet and socket sets, large crescent wrenches and other hand tools. |
| The tools may or may not be marked with U.S., U.S. CCC, US EC and may be     |
| painted red.  Some of these contaminated tools were recently recovered by    |
| inspectors of the Division of Radiation Control at the Trading Company.      |
| Citizens who may have purchased tools at the Trading Company during the      |
| period January 2001 - December 2001 may have their tools assessed at the     |
| Tooele County Health Department, 151 North Main, Tooele beginning Wednesday, |
| February 27, 2002, from 10:00 am. - 5:00 p.m., Thursday, February 28, 2002,  |
| and Monday, March 4, 2002, from 1:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m..  Tools suspected to   |
| be contaminated should be handled as little as possible and wrapped in a     |
| plastic bag to be brought to the Health Department offices for assessment.   |
| Persons handling suspected tools should wash their hands afterwards.  If     |
| tools are determined to be contaminated, local and state environmental       |
| health officials will arrange for their proper disposal.                     |
|                                                                              |
| "'While we do not believe these contaminated tools present any significant   |
| health threat to members of the public, it is prudent to make sure that      |
| these tools are rounded up and properly disposed,' said Bill Sinclair,       |
| Director of the Division of Radiation Control.   'We are happy to provide    |
| facilities and cooperate with the Department of Environmental Quality in     |
| assuring that our Tooele citizens can have the opportunity to assess if      |
| there is a problem with tools that may have been purchased at the Trading    |
| Company,' stated Myron Batman of the Tooele County Health Department.        |
|                                                                              |
| "Division of Radiation Control inspectors have visited all pawn shops in     |
| Tooele County and are satisfied that this problem is confined to the one     |
| business.  The investigation is continuing and if the problem is more        |
| widespread, additional information will be issued as necessary."             |
|                                                                              |

| A female patient undergoing brachytherapy treatment for cancer at the        |
| Danbury Hospital in Norwalk, CT, was prescribed 4600 Rad using a Cs-137      |
| source.  One of the five seeds (21.23 mg Radium equivalent) was found in a   |
| trash can.  This resulted in an estimated delivered dose of 3458 Rad which   |
| is 24.8% less than prescribed.  All hospital staff entering the area where   |
| the trash can was located had personal dosimetry such that no unmonitored    |
| exposures occurred.  The licensee is conducting a review to determine        |
| appropriate corrective actions.  The prescribing physician has been informed |
| by the hospital.  The licensee notified RI Office(Bhalla).  Call the         |

| UNIT 2 COMMENCED A TS REQUIRED SHUTDOWN AFTER DECLARING A SI PUMP           
|
| INOPERABLE                                                                   |

| "On February 20, 2002, at approximately 0100 CST. OI-163, 'SI, RHR, and CS   |
| Pump Runs,' was being performed on Safety Injection (SI) pump 2P-15B. This   |
| procedure is used to bump the pump to ensure bearing lubrication as a        |
| preventive maintenance activity. When the pump was started, motor current    |
| increased as normal, but then decayed to less than 10 amps. Additionally,    |
| the pump appeared to develop no discharge pressure. In the field, the        |
| auxiliary operator noted a loud bang near the end of the coastdown and       |
| further noted excessive seal leakage. At approximately 0105 CST, SI pump     |
| 2P-15B was declared inoperable, LCO 3.5.2 was declared not met, and TS       |
| Action Condition A.1 was entered. Tech Spec LCO 3.5.2. ECCS-Operating,       |
| requires two ECCS trains to be operable in Modes 1, 2, and 3. LCO 3.5.2,     |
| Condition A, requires an inoperable ECCS train to be restored to an operable |
| status within 72 hours.                                                      |
|                                                                              |
| "Subsequent inspection of the pump following disassembly of the casing       |
| revealed damage to the rotating element, the coupling and shaft keys between |
| the pump and the motor, the pump internal wear rings, and other components.  |
| At this time, we believe the pump damage was due to gas binding in the pump  |
| as a result of back leakage through two check valves. This allowed nitrogen  |
| saturated water from the 'A' SI accumulator to migrate to the 2P-15B pump.   |
| Repair of the pump has proceeded with the expectation that the pump would be |
| repaired, tested and returned to service prior to the expiration of the 72   |
| hours allowed in the action statement. However, as of approximately 1400     |
| CST, we determined that we were unlikely to complete the remaining repairs   |
| and the required pump testing before the expiration of the action statement. |
| Accordingly, at that time activities were initiated to commence a shutdown   |
| of PBNP Unit 2 and at approximately 1448 CST the shutdown of the unit was    |
| initiated."                                                                  |

| The licensee is decreasing power at 30%/hr and anticipates entry into Mode 3 |
| at approximately 1930CST.   The licensee informed the NRC Resident           |

| At 1630 CST, on 2/22/02 the Plant Shift Superintendent (PSS) was notified of |
| an activation of the Water Inventory Control System (WICS) on #1 autoclave   |
| in the C-360 building.   Approximately 50 minutes into the heat cycle, the   |
| Hi Primary Condensate alarm was received, and steam supply to the autoclave  |
| was automatically isolated.  Operators investigated the alarm.  The          |
| autoclave was removed from service, and the WICS was declared inoperable.    |
| Further investigation will be performed by the System Engineer and           |
| Instrument Maintenance to determine the exact cause of the alarm.  The       |
| purpose of the WICS is to limit the amount of water in the autoclave and is  |
| a safety system required by TSR 2.1.4.3.                                     |
|                                                                              |
| The PSS determined that this event is a 24 Hour Event Report due to a valid  |
| automatic activation of a Q safety system.                                   |
|                                                                              |
