AGREEMENT STATE REPORT - DAMAGED TROXLER

The following was received from the state of Kansas via email:

"Yesterday the Kansas Radiation Control Program was notified by a licensee, Kruger Technology Inc (dba KTI) 22-B659-01, of a Troxler gauge which was hit and damaged at a construction site in Edgerton ,KS. No one was injured. The source was in the shielded position. Initial surveys indicate [that] the shielding is intact. The rod was slightly bent, fortunately the device still fit in the transport case. The licensee reported by phone that the device was hit [at] approximately 1530 CST. The initial report was made to the State at 1615 CST. The RSO was on scene within an hour of the incident. The incident occurred on a new road construction site. It was the end of the day and few workers were present, no public traffic is permitted on the road. The site is an industrial complex in a rural area and there is no public access to the site.

"Currently the device is secured in the licensee's storage room. An inspector was dispatched this morning to conduct a reactive inspection and verify survey results. More information will be provided to the NRC as it is available, including the device make and model, serial number, survey meter information, verified survey results, more information on how the incident occurred, enforcement actions taken if applicable, and more precise location information."
