Subject: Update on Event No. 36511: Recovery of lost Moisture Density
         Gauge


Discussion:

On March 25, 2000, a civilian notified the licensee, H.C. Nutting Co.,
that he/she had discovered a Troxler moisture/density gauge at Paddock
Road and I- 75 in Cincinnati, Ohio. The licensee initially reported to
the NRC on December 14, 1999, that the gauge had been stolen. On March
26, 2000, the licensee contacted the NRC Operations Center and reported
that the gauge had been discovered. The gauge contains 8 mCi of Cs-137
and 40 mCi of Am/Be-241. The licensee took possession of the device on
March 26, 2000. The device was not damaged and there was no leakage
detected, according to the licensee. The Ohio Bureau of Radiation Safety
was notified and the Cincinnati Police Department will be notified.

Regional Action:

This event will be reviewed further during the next routine inspection.
