Subject: PLANNED MAINTENANCE OUTAGE

Discussion:

On December 1, 2000, Prairie Island Unit 1 was taken off-line and shut
down for a planned maintenance outage to replace the seals on the
11-reactor coolant pump. The unit reached cold shutdown conditions on
December 2. The licensee had been monitoring a slow degradation in seal
return flow for several months and determined a few weeks ago that it was
not prudent to attempt to continue operations until the next refueling
outage. Other maintenance and testing activities will be accomplished
during this outage as time permits.

Regional Action:

Baseline inspection per IP 71111.20 by resident inspectors.
