AGREEMENT STATE REPORT - TRANSPORTATION ACCIDENT

The following is a summary of an e-mail received from the State of Florida:

On May 15, 2019 at 2327 EDT, the Florida Division of Emergency Management, Radiation Control Duty Officer, contacted the NRC via e-mail to report that all westbound lanes of East Colonial Drive, in Orlando FL, were closed and the entrance and exit ramps to/from State Route 417 were closed. The State Trooper on scene reported that there was a potential release of an unknown quantity of medical grade radioactive material, Molybdenum-99. This material is used in the treatment of cancer. Orange County HAZMAT was dispatched to the scene and requested a call back for assistance. A state inspector was dispatched to the scene. The inspector found no damage to the radioactive material and no contamination. The material was housed in a lead lined box, surrounded by styrofoam, in a cardboard shipping container. There was one person reported with minor injuries due to the crash.

Florida Report No.: 2019-2728

Notified DOT Crisis Management Center, DOE and DHS SWO.


* * * UPDATE ON 6/6/2019 AT 1718 FROM STATE OF FLORIDA TO RODNEY CLAGG * * *

"Vehicle accident occurred around 2215 EDT on the west bound side of East Colonial Drive at the south bound exit ramp of the 417 involving medical radioisotopes. Tradewind Enterprises Inc (Hillsboro, OR; 503-648-2823) courier vehicle was a small SUV with radioactive placards carrying three packages of Mo-99 in the back of the SUV. Contact cell phone numbers for Orange County Fire are 407-402-8532 and 407-383-9806. State of Florida inspector responded. The boxes did not leave the vehicle nor sustain any damage nor was there any leakage of radioactive material. Surveys of packages showed all within Tl [transportation index], swipes indicated no removable contamination. Custody of packages was taken by driver's supervisor. This incident is closed."

POTENTIAL MISSED SURVEILLANCE FOR ISFSI

"At approximately 1833 EDT on 5/20/2019, VC Summer Nuclear Station identified a potential missed surveillance of the Spent Fuel Storage Canister Heat Removal System Surveillance Requirement (SR) 3.1.2. This is a surveillance requirement in the Holtec CoC No. 1032 Amendment 0, Revision 1 for the HI-STORM FW. It was identified that the station suspended verifying all overpack inlets and outlets were free of blockage from solid debris or floodwater every 24 hours and began utilizing the alternate surveillance method of installed temperature monitoring equipment. However, this monitoring equipment had not been declared operable from the completion of the Dry Cask Storage Campaign on April 11, 2019. This surveillance was last performed satisfactorily on May 15, 2019.

"The station has documented this missed surveillance in the Corrective Action Program under CR-19-01866.

"The NRC Senior Resident has been notified."

The licensee stated that the temperature monitoring equipment while not operable, was functional. The licensee successfully performed the surveillance requirement on 5/21/2019.

* * * RETRACTION FROM BETH DALICK TO RODNEY CLAGG AT 0828 EDT ON 6/6/19 * * *

"ENS Event Number 54075, made on May 21, 2019, is being retracted.

"NRC Notification 54075 was made to ensure the 24-Hour Non-Emergency reporting requirement of 10 CFR 72.75(d)(1)(i) was met for a potential missed surveillance of the Spent Fuel Storage Canister Heat Removal System Surveillance Requirement (SR) 3.1.2.

"On June 4, 2019, a Past Operability Evaluation determined the temperature monitoring equipment, utilized to complete the Technical Specification Surveillance 3.1.2, was operable during the time period of 5/16/2019-5/21/2019. The station performed satisfactory calibration checks on the temperature monitoring equipment and had not experienced any significant weather events capable of producing vent blockage (i.e. flood, tornado, snow storm, etc.). Therefore, utilizing the installed temperature monitoring equipment is not considered a missed surveillance of SR 3.1.2 and renders this event not reportable under 10 CFR 72.75(d)(1)(i).

"VCSNS's evaluation of this event is documented in the Corrective Action Program in Condition Report (CR-19-01866).

"The licensee has notified the NRC Resident Inspector."

AGREEMENT STATE REPORT - SOURCE DRIVE CABLE DISCONNECTED

The following report was received from the Texas Department of State Health Services via email:

"On May 29, 2019, the agency [Texas Department of State Health Services] was notified by the licensee's radiation safety officer (RSO) that one of their crews had suffered a source disconnect at a field site location. The exposure device being used was a QSA 880D device containing a 58.8 Curie Iridium - 192 source. The RSO stated two individuals approved for source retrieval, retrieved the source, and that no over exposures occurred due to the event. The RSO stated that during the retrieval it was found that the drive cable broke near the connector. The crank out device has been taken out of service and will be sent to the manufacturer for inspection. Additional information will be provided as it is received in accordance with SA-300."

60-DAY OPTIONAL TELEPHONIC NOTIFICATION DUE TO INVALID SPECIFIED SYSTEM ACTUATION

"This 60-day telephone notification is being made in accordance with the reporting requirements specified by 10 CFR 50.73(a)(1) and 10 CFR 50.73(a)(2)(iv)(A) to describe an invalid actuation of a general containment isolation signal affecting multiple Main Steam Isolation Valves (MSIVs).

"On April 18, 2019 at approximately 0110 EDT, during performance of an ASME reactor vessel leak check, all four inboard MSIVs closed as a result of actuation of the Main Steam Line (MSL) high flow instrumentation. The high flow signal was spurious on the 'D' channel with no flow in the MSLs. Since an actual high flow condition did not exist at the time of the actuation, the actuation was considered invalid. The MSIVs functioned as designed on actuation of the MSL high flow instrumentation. All outboard MSIVs were closed at the time of the actuation in accordance with the vessel leak check procedure.

"The NRC Resident Inspector has been notified."
