Event Text

The following information was provided by the Florida Bureau of Radiation Control via email:

"The Radiation Safety Officer (RSO) for Universal Engineering Sciences, reported that a Troxler gauge, possibly Model 3440, was improperly secured on the back of a truck, fell off, and was damaged. The gauge was in the shielded position but not in the case. The worker was able to retrieve the gauge from the road and secure it. The Troxler sources are believed to be intact. The local office RSO is in route to the location with radiation instruments and shielding (bucket of sand) to verify the sources were not breached. If the sources are found to be breached, they will be returned to Troxler for repair/disposal. No Bureau of Radiation Control assistance was requested."

Event Text

The following information was provided by the licensee via email:

"At 1530 [EDT] on 7/11/2023, North Anna Power Station notified the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) that a small volume of filtered/purified water potentially discharged into Lake Anna from a leak from a reverse osmosis unit. The leak did not follow the normal release path for discharge through outfall 013. No environmental impact associated with this leak was observed or would be expected because the water in question is cleaner than the lake water, and would have met all discharge requirements for outfall 013.

"The NRC Resident Inspector was notified.

"This event is reportable in accordance with 10 CFR 50.72(b)(2)(xi)."
