Subject: MILLSTONE 1 CONTROL ROOM TRANSFER

Discussion:

Millstone 1 plans to move out of the old Control Room into the new
Central Monitoring System (CMS) on Saturday, March 17.  The on-duty shift
manager will transfer into the CMS, where the command and control
responsibilities for Unit 1 will then be implemented.  During the
transfer both the old Control Room and the CMS will be operable and
staffed, until the CMS assumes full control.  Electric power to the old
Unit 1 control room is expected to be cut on or about March 24, and
operators will be on duty until then in the old control room for purposes
not related to the spent fuel pool.

An inspector will be onsite March 19-22
