EN Revision Text: CHARGING PUMP AND BORATION FLOWPATHS SIMULTANEOUSLY INOPERABLE

"At 1240 EST on 12/14/20, it was determined that all Unit 4 Charging Pumps and Boration Flowpaths were simultaneously inoperable.

"This condition is being reported pursuant to 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(v).

"The NRC Resident Inspector has been notified."

* * * RETRACTION ON 2/10/2021 AT 1210 EST FROM DAVID STOIA TO BETHANY CECERE * * *

"On 1/21/21 a past operability review was completed that assessed the event reported on 12/14/20. The evaluation concluded that the condition did not render any Unit 4 Charging Pump or all boration flowpaths inoperable, and that the 8-hour notification submitted on 12/14/20 was not required. This notification is a retraction of EN #55036.

"The NRC Site Resident has been notified of the EN #55036 retraction."

CONTROL RELEASE OF RADIOACTIVE MATERIAL AND ACCIDENT MITIGATION

"On February 9, 2021, at 0153 CST, Cooper Nuclear Station experienced a spike in Secondary Containment differential pressure which exceeded the Technical Specifications Surveillance Requirements 3.6.4.1.1 limit of -0.25 inches of water gauge. Secondary Containment differential pressure oscillated coincident with barometric pressure oscillations. Three additional spikes occurred which exceed the Technical Specification limit. The duration of each spike was less than one minute. The last spike occurred at 0232 CST. Secondary Containment differential pressure has restored to Technical Specification limits and further investigation is ongoing.

"This unplanned Secondary Containment inoperability constitutes a condition reportable under 10CFR50.72(b)(3)(v)(C) and (D), "An event or condition that at the time of discovery could have prevented the fulfillment of the safety function of [Structures, Systems, and Components] SSCs that are needed to control the release of radioactive material and mitigate the consequences of an accident.

"The NRC Senior Resident Inspector has been informed."

OFFSITE NOTIFICATION DUE TO AN INADVERTENT ACTUATION OF EMERGENCY SIRENS

"At approximately 0800 on February 9, 2021, thirty-one (31) H.B. Robinson Nuclear Plant Offsite Emergency Notification sirens in Darlington County, SC were inadvertently actuated. The Darlington County Emergency Services and South Carolina Emergency Management Division were promptly notified. The actuation lasted for three (3) minutes at full volume. The cause of the actuation is under investigation at this time.

"Capability to notify the public was never degraded during the inadvertent actuation. All Emergency Notification sirens remain in service.
