| 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.          |
|                                                                              |

| "On 11/26/01 at 12:32, the PBNP ERDS and SPDS were declared out of service   |
| for the PPCS upgrade project.  EN #38518 indicated to the NRC that the       |
| systems would remain unavailable until approximately December 18, 2001.  Due |
| to reliability issues with the newly installed PPCS, that expected date has  |
| been delayed to approximately January 3, 2002."                              |

| During the installation of the new PPCS, issues were identified which need   |
| to be resolved to allow SPDS and ERDS to be placed back in service fully.    |
| Currently, the new PPCS is only partially operable.  Work is continuing on   |
| the new PPCS to allow full operability.  The current estimate for return to  |
| service of SPDS and ERDS is 01/19/02.  This date may need to be extended     |
| again due to parts availability.                                             |

| UNANALYZED CONDITION DUE TO FIRE BARRIERS NOT INSTALLED PER DESIGN          
|
|                                                                              |
| "On March 1, 2002, Harris Nuclear Plant personnel determined that an         |
| unanalyzed condition existed due to a required three-hour fire barrier not   |
| installed per design. The applicable fire barrier was designed to provide    |
| required separation between redundant train cables supplying A-SA Emergency  |
| Diesel Generator and B-SB Emergency Diesel Generator. Harris Nuclear Plant   |
| has initiated a continuous fire watch as a compensatory measure until the    |
| affected barrier could be restored to the design configuration. This issue   |
| is being reported in accordance with 10 CFR 50.72 as an unanalyzed           |
| condition."                                                                  |

| "On March 3, 2002 at 0218 a cooling line to 12B circulating water pump upper |
| motor bearing ruptured inside the upper oil reservoir. Oil was displaced     |
| from the oil reservoir and approximately 50 gallons of oil entered the       |
| Delaware River. 12B circulating water pump was removed from service and the  |
| leak was terminated. Cleanup efforts by onsite personnel are in progress. A  |
| 15 minute report was made to the New Jersey Department of Environmental      |
| Protection. A two hour report was made to the National Response Center in    |
| accordance with the site spill plan.                                         |

| Salem Unit 1 was initially at 100% power with 13B circulating water pump out |
| of service for scheduled maintenance. Power reduction is currently in        |
| progress in response to the loss of 12B circulating water pump with a target |
| power level of 40%."                                                         |
