OFFSITE NOTIFICATION TO FLORIDA DEPARTMENT IF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION (FEDP)

"At 0950, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) was notified in regards to a Turbine Lube Oil spill of approximately 350 gallons. The notification, to the FDEP, was required due to the inability to reach clean-up target levels within 30 days. In addition, the State Warning Point was notified at 1010. This non-emergency notification is being made, pursuant to 10 CFR 50.72(b)(2)(xi), due to the notification of outside government agencies in response to this environmental event. The cause of the oil spill is still under investigation."

The NRC Resident Inspector was notified of this event by the licensee.
