"At 2130 hours, 07/06/09, the PORTS Plant Shift Superintendent's (PSS) Office was notified of an operational upset at the X-600 Steam Plant Facility due to a loss of power on the #3 (operating) Boiler. The operational upset resulted in three separate six minute periods, where the permissible opacity limit was exceeded, while power was being restored to the boiler. The PORTS PSS Office notified the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA) of this incident, at 0054 hours, 07/07/09. This notification to another government agency is reportable to the NRC as a 4-hour Event, per the United States Enrichment Corporation (USEC) Nuclear Regulatory Event Reporting Procedure UE2-RA-RE1030, Appendix D, Section P (Miscellaneous) which states: 'USEC shall notify NRC of any event or situation, related to the health and safety of the public or on-site personnel, or protection of the environment, for which a news release is planned or notification to other government agencies has been or will be made. Such an event may include an on-site fatality or inadvertent release of radioactively contaminated materials'."
