Event Text

PLANNED MAINTENANCE ON RADIOLOGICAL MONITOR

"At 0500 [CST] today (January 12, 2015), planned maintenance activities commenced on the Reactor Building Separate Particulate Iodine and Noble Gas (SPING) monitor. Work on the SPING affects classification and assessment of the Emergency Plan for a radiological release through the Reactor Building Vents. In the case of a radiological event, the Reactor Building Ventilation will be isolated via Area Radiation Monitors (ARM) in the ducting and the Main Chimney SPING will be used for classification and assessment. This would be the normal response for a radiological event.

"This maintenance activity is expected to be longer than 72 hours. The Reactor Building SPING is scheduled to be restored on Friday, January 16.

"This event is reportable per 10CFR50.72(b)(3)(xiii) since the maintenance activity affects classification and assessment.

"The NRC Resident Inspector has been notified."
