AGREEMENT STATE REPORT - LOSS OF X-RAY FLUORESCENCE SURVEY DEVICE

After completing an x-ray fluorescence (XRF) survey for a client, the licensee placed the XRF device on the roof of his vehicle. The licensee left the work area and upon entering the main flow of traffic he pulled over and realized that the device was no longer on top of the roof of his vehicle. He conducted a search along the path he had traveled. The Montgomery County Fire and Rescue responded and proceeded to search the previously identified stretches of roadway and did not find the device. This incident was also reported to the Montgomery County Police Department. The Maryland Department of the Environment is investigating this incident.

The lost instrument is an LPA-1 XRF (S/N 1189) device, gray in color, manufactured by Radioactive Monitoring Devices (RM3) of Watertown, MA. The radioactive source is a Cobalt-57 isotope with an activity of (12) twelve millicuries.

INVALID ACTUATION OF THE DIVISION 2 SHUTDOWN SERVICE WATER (SX) SYSTEM PUMP.


"The following 60-day report is being made under 50.73 (a)(2)(iv)(A) for an invalid actuation of the Division 2 Shutdown Service Water (SX) system pump that occurred at 1548 hours on May 12, 2005. As allowed by 10CFR50.73(a)(1) this notification is being made via telephone. NUREG-1022, Revision 2 identifies the information that needs to be reported as follows:

"(a) The specific train(s) and system(s) that were actuated.

"On May 12, 2005, the Division 2 SX system pump automatically started during the performance of surveillance testing procedure, 9069.01, SX Operability, while preparing to secure the pump and restore the Plant Service Water (WS) system feed to the Division 2 SX piping. As part of the restoration of the system to its normal standby lineup, the handswitch for the 1SX014B (WS to SX cross-tie) valve was being held in the Open position while the handswitch for the Division 2 SX pump was held in the Off position. While monitoring system pressure to allow releasing the handswitch for the SX pump, system pressure had not increased above the automatic initiation setpoint when the operator's hand relaxed on the grip of the handswitch of the pump enough to allow the pump to start. The inadvertent actuation of the Division 2 SX pump was not in response to plant conditions requiring the pump to automatically start.

"(b) Whether each train actuation was complete or partial.

"The automatic start of the Division 2 SX pump was complete, but was limited to Division 2 only. Divisions 1 and 3 were in standby and were not affected by the opening of the Division 2 WS to SX cross-tie valve.

"(c) Whether or not the system started and functioned successfully.

"The automatic start of the Division 2 SX pump was a successful start and functioned successfully.

"The NRC Resident Inspector was notified of this notification."
