UNANALYZED CONDITION DUE TO NON-COMPLIANT FIRE PROTECTION MANUAL OPERATOR ACTIONS

"As part of the License Amendment development to transition to NFPA 805, PINGP [Prairie Island Nuclear Generating Plant] Calculation ENG-ME-353, Mechanical MOV [Motor Operated Valve] Analysis to support IN-92-18 Response, revision 1, issued in 1998, was reviewed for applicability for the transition to NFPA 805. Recent consultation with an MOV engineer regarding the scope of the revision indicated ENG-ME-353 is out of date.

"On 12/21/2015, during technical review for a new weak link calculation, several MOVs were identified from the list of MOVs that are credited to be manually operated from outside the control room in the event of a fire in the control room or relay room per PINGP Procedure F5 Appendix B, Control Room Evacuation (Fire), that could be damaged if hot shorts were to bypass the torque and limit switches. There are also four other motor valves associated with the Gland Steam system of both Unit 1 and Unit 2 that were added to the procedure F5 Appendix B, Control Room Evacuation (Fire), that have not been analyzed for a weak link. This unanalyzed condition could impact the ability of plant operators to implement procedure F5 Appendix B, Control Room Evacuation (Fire).

"New hourly fire watch impairments were created for Fire Area 13 (Control Room) and Fire Area 18 (Relay and Cable Spreading Room) as compensatory measures.

"Therefore, this is an unanalyzed condition reportable under 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(ii)(B).

"The public health and safety is not impacted.

"The NRC Resident Inspector has been notified."

* * * UPDATE AT 0107 EST ON 01/14/16 FROM NATHAN BIBUS TO DANIEL MILLS * * *

"Reviews of the list of MOVs susceptible to hot shorts bypassing the torque and limit switches credited to be manually operated from outside the control room in the event of a fire have continued. Additional valves have been noted to be affected by this failure mechanism in areas outside of the Control Room or Relay Room. The additional MOVs affected by this unanalyzed condition could impact the ability of plant operators to implement PINGP Procedure F5 Appendix D, Impact of Fire Outside Control/Relay Room.

"As a compensatory measure, additional hourly fire watch impairments were created for the following fire areas:
Fire Area 031 ( A Train Hot Shutdown Panel & Air Compressor/Aux 695 Feedwater Room)
Fire Area 032 ( B Train Hot Shutdown Panel & Air Compressor/Aux 695 Feedwater Room)
Fire Area 058 (Aux Building Ground Floor Unit 1)
Fire Area 073 (Auxiliary Building Ground Floor Unit 2)

"The public health and safety is not impacted.

"The [NRC] Resident Inspector has been notified."

AGREEMENT STATE REPORT - MEDICAL UNDERDOSE

The following was received from New Jersey via fax:

"The hospital's Radiation Safety Officer reported that a patient was due to receive a therapeutic treatment of Y-90 SIR-Spheres. The prescribed dose was 10.5 milliCuries to the left lobe of the liver. The dose administered was only 65% of the prescribed dose. Approximately 3.2 milliCuries remained in the vial after the administration was completed. The patient was underdosed and has been informed. Additional details will be forthcoming from the hospital."

A Medical Event may indicate potential problems in a medical facility's use of radioactive materials. It does not necessarily result in harm to the patient.

LOSS OF VENTILATION SYSTEM TO EMERGENCY OFF-SITE FACILITY

"On January 12, 2016, during performance of an EOF [Emergency Off-Site Facility] Diesel Operability Test, the EOF Air Conditioning unit and EOF Air Return fan did not run as expected. Per plant procedure, the operators placed the system in filtration mode and then back in normal mode. Again, both units did not run as expected. The EOF was declared non-functional due to the failure of the air conditioning unit and fan.

"The EOF is available for emergency response purposes unless the temperature can not be maintained or a release is in progress. The backup EOF is available for use if needed."

The licensee notified the NRC Resident Inspector.


* * * UPDATE FROM DAVID LANTZ TO DONALD NORWOOD AT 1517 EST ON 1/13/16 * * *

"The Emergency Off-Site Facility (EOF) was restored to functional status at 1223 CST on 01/13/2016."

The licensee notified the NRC Resident Inspector.
