STUCK OPEN PROCESS GAUGE SHUTTER

On 1/2/2020, it was discovered that the shutter on a centrifuge process level gauge was stuck in the open position. The gauge is a Berthold model LB7442F, serial number 6005 containing a 3000 mCi Cs-137 source. The source serial number is 5559GN. The shutter is normally open during process operation and closed during maintenance. Red tape and plywood have been erected in order to prevent inadvertent personnel entry into the area. No over-exposures have occurred. A Berthold representative should be on-site next week to repair the shutter.

PLANNED TECHNICAL SUPPORT CENTER POWER MODIFICATION

"This is an eight-hour, non-emergency notification for a loss of Emergency Assessment Capability. This event is reportable in accordance with 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(xiii) because the work activity affects the functionality of an emergency response facility.

"A planned modification to the Technical Support Center (TSC) power supplies started on January 13, 2020. The work activity includes installation of a permanent back-up diesel generator and rewiring of automatic and manual power transfer switches. The work duration is approximately three weeks.

"If an emergency is declared requiring TSC activation during this period, the Emergency Coordinator and the TSC staff will assemble and staff the alternate location in accordance with applicable site procedures. The Emergency Response Organization team has been notified of the TSC modification and the need to assemble and staff the alternate location during an emergency.

"There was no impact on the health and safety of the public or plant personnel. The NRC Resident Inspector has been notified."
