| During a test of HPCI, the flow controller failed as the controller was      |

| being transferred from manual to balance.  The system was manually  tripped  |

| and remains inoperable.  The system impacted is the High Pressure Coolant    |

| Injection and the cause is being investigated.  The plant is also in a LCO   |

| action statement.  Corrective action is being implemented to correct this    |

| single train system failure.                                                 |

| "Event report 39583 was determined not to be reportable.  The HPCI system    |

| would have been able to perform its safety function of automatically         |

| the event of a loss of coolant accident, and to mitigate the consequences of |

| a high energy line break.  [Therefore], this event is being retracted."      |

| REACTOR VESSEL HEAD DEGRADED CONDITION                                       |

| "During the unit 1 cycle 12 refueling and steam generator replacement        |

| outage, an inspection was performed of the vessel head in accordance with    |

| NRC Order EA-03-009.  This bare metal inspection identified a potential leak |

| indication at the head to penetration interface for CRDM (Control Rod Drive  |

| Mechanism) penetration #3.  On March 26, 2003, at approximately 1012 hours   |

| EST, it was decided that the chemical samples have confirmed that the        |

| residue found at this interface contains boron, iron, and zinc, indicating   |

| that this was an RCS leak.  This leak is most likely from a through wall     |

| crack in the RCS pressure boundary at the CRDM interface.  Volumetric exams  |

| are planned to confirm the crack and to determine the scope of any repairs.  |

| In accordance with the Order, a 100% volumetric inspection is being prepared |

| for this outage.  Prior to this identification, this unit was rated as a     |

| 'low susceptibility category.'  There had been no indication of RCS leakage  |

| during the previous cycle's operation.  This notification is being made in   |

| accordance with 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(ii)(A)."                                  |

| "The purpose of this notification is to update event #39704 concerning a     |

| potential pressure boundary leak at CRDM #3. TVA has completed both UT and   |

| PT examinations of CRDM #3. The results of these exams do not provide any    |

| indication of a crack in the RCS pressure boundary. Investigations are       |

| continuing as to the source of the residue found at the penetration. Based   |

| on the results of the vessel head examination, this investigation is         |

| focusing on determining whether the residue was a result of a prior leak     |

| from a non-RCS pressure boundary location."                                  |

| "The purpose of this notification is to retract the original 10 CFR 50.72    |

| notification described in event notification #39704.                         |

| TVA's previous update to this notification stated that we had no indication  |

| of a pressure boundary crack and that we were continuing to investigate the  |

| source of the residue found near CRDM penetration #3. Isotopic analysis      |

| (Cesium isotopes) of the boron residue from the head now confirmed that the  |

| residue was over 10 years old and likely the result of a conoseal leak that  |

| occurred in that period. As such, TVA is retracting the original             |

| notification."                                                               |

| Bureau of Radiation Control via facsimile:                                   |

|                                                                              |

| "The gauge operator was working a night assignment.  After completion he     |

| took his company vehicle to the company office to complete paperwork at      |

| approximately 11:20 p.m.  After completion of the paperwork he returned to   |

| his vehicle at approximately 11:40 p.m. and discovered that his assigned CPN |

| nuclear density gauge (Model MC1-DR, Serial No. MD0129983) with two sealed   |

| radiation sources: a 10 millicurie Amersham, Model CPN 131, cesium-137       |

| capsule, Serial No. 2870, that is engraved on the source rod as "CS9983"     |

| (source type plus the last four digits of the gauge Serial No.); and a 50    |

| millicurie Amersham, Model CPN131, americium-241/beryllium, Serial No. 0992, |

| that is engraved on the gauge's internal source pedestal as "AM9983" (source |

| type plus the last four digits of the gauge Serial No.), was missing from    |

| the truck. The Licensee's security chain had been cut and was left in the    |

| vehicle. The 'red' transport case had been locked but the Licensee reports   |

| finding a piece of it's lock, also cut, in the bed of the truck. However,    |

| the transport case was also missing. In addition, the gauge's rod handle was |

| also locked within the case before the gauge was stolen. The Licensee also   |

| reported that nothing except the gauge and it's case were removed from the   |

| truck. This Agency has searched Agency Open Records requests back through    |

| January 2002, with no suspicious request noted."                             |

| There is no media attention at this time.  The Licensee is considering       |

| whether or not to post a reward for return of the gauge.                     |

| AUTOMATIC REACTOR SCRAM AT BRUNSWICK DURING START-UP FROM REFUELING OUTAGE   |

|                                                                              |

| "On April 4, 2003, during a Unit 2 reactor start up, primary containment     |

| group 1 isolation was received which resulted in a reactor scram. Following  |

| the scram, reactor water level lowered to approximately 150 inches. This is  |

| below the Reactor Water Low Level One set point of 166 inches. As a result   |

| of the low water level, primary containment group 2, 6, & 8 isolation        |

| signals were received. All required isolations occurred as a result of the   |

| Reactor Water Low Level One isolation signal. All control rods fully         |

| inserted on the scram. Reactor Core Isolation Cooling was manually started   |

| and Reactor water level was restored to the normal band. Reactor Core        |

| Isolation Cooling was shutdown after Reactor water level was restored.       |

|                                                                              |

| "It is believed that the cause of the group 1 isolation signal (Main Steam   |

| Isolation Valve closure Scram signal) was an Electro-hydraulic Control (EHC) |

| malfunction that caused the Main Turbine Bypass valves to open. This         |

| resulted in the Main Steam Line pressure dropping below the group 1 set      |

| point of 850 psig. Investigation is ongoing to determine the exact cause of  |

| the EHC malfunction."                                                        |

|                                                                              |

| (FW-2-377) to steam generator (SG) 2-1 was determined to be inoperable due   |

| to incorrect installation.  Based on radiography, the check valve appears to |

| be installed incorrectly such that it may not allow sufficient AFW flow to   |

| SG 2-1.  This condition renders two trains of AFW inoperable.                |
