Subject: SHUTDOWN TO REPAIR REACTOR EQUIPMENT COOLING SYSTEM LEAK

Discussion:

At about 11:00 a.m. on January 7, Cooper operators began a controlled
power reduction to 12 percent power in response to increasing leakage
from the reactor equipment cooling system.  On January 8 at 1:30 a.m.,
operators entered containment but could not locate the leak.  The
operators continued the planned shutdown by manually scramming the
reactor just before noon on January 8, 2000. After the shutdown, workers
found the leak in the 'C' containment fan cooler, one of four containment
fan coolers, and isolated its supply of reactor equipment cooling,
leaving three coolers in service. The containment fan coolers do not
perform any safety-related function, and licensee analysis of operating
requirements for containment cooling supports operation with as few as
two of the four coolers.  Plant management planned to restart the unit
upon completion of repairs.

Regional Action:

Throughout the weekend the resident inspectors observed portions of the
shutdown, the containment entries, and monitored licensee efforts to
identify and repair the leak.  They will continue to monitor outage
activities and preparation for startup.
