AGREEMENT STATE REPORT - RADIOGRAPHY CAMERA FELL OFF TRUCK AND LATER RECOVERED

"On April 13, 2016, the licensee reported to the Agency [Texas Department of State Health] that a radiography crew had failed to secure a QSA 880 Delta industrial radiography camera (SN: D9092), which contained a 98.7 Curie Iridium-192 source (SN: 30367G), inside their truck before leaving their facility to go to a temporary job site. The crew left the facility with the camera on the tailgate of their truck. A member of the public saw the camera in the street at an intersection approximately 100 yards from the facility. He knew what the camera was and that the licensee had a facility there. He moved the camera out of the street and into the ditch and called the licensee. The licensee responded immediately. The licensee inspected the camera and found no damage. They surveyed and confirmed the source was still in the fully shielded position. The licensee's radiation safety officer reported initial estimate is that the camera was out of their possession approximately 5 minutes and no one received any exposure above regulatory limits. The licensee will complete its investigation of the incident and will confirm or correct this initial information. Since the licensee has not yet submitted a dose assessment for the member of the public, we are making this report. More information will be provided as it is obtained in accordance with SA-300."

MISSING FIRE BARRIERS

"Missing fire barrier between Fire Area (FA) 59 and 85.

"During a walk down of fire barriers for the NFPA 805 project, it was determined that the fire barrier between Fire Area 59 (Unit 1) and 85 (common) is not a rated barrier due to unsealed penetrations in the barrier. Evaluation FPEE 12-006 evaluated the acceptability of the barrier being unrated based on separation of safe shutdown equipment however a review of equipment credited for Appendix R safe shutdown identified that the redundant credited Appendix R equipment is on either side of the fire barrier which is not 3 hour rated. The conclusion of the FPEE is therefore no longer valid.

"Fire Hazard Analysis Drawings Do Not Match Boundary Description.

"The plant layout in F5 Appendix F, Rev. 28, Fire Hazard Analysis (FHA), does not agree with the boundary description in the FHA for the Unit 1 and 2 Containment Annulus fire areas, Fire Area (FA) 68 and 72. The layout should but does not show the fire area boundary between the annulus and adjacent fire areas, FA 60 and 75 on 735 [foot] and 61A on 755 [foot], as an Appendix R boundary. The annulus airlock doors are 3-hour fire rated and the airlock is constructed of concrete thick enough to qualify as a 3 hour fire barrier however, there are penetrations in the barrier that are not sealed with fire rated materials or inspected as required by the Fire Protection Program.

"Therefore, this is an unanalyzed condition reportable under 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(ii)(B). This condition does not affect the health and safety of the public or station employees. The NRC Resident Inspector has been notified."
