This information is current as of 9:00 am (EST) on March 25, 2004. Davis-Besse completed its maintenance outage to repair feed water and steam line turbine bypass valves and recommenced start-up activities. The plant is currently in Mode 3 at 430OF and 1470 psig. The plant entered Mode 3 (reactor coolant temperature >280OF) at 12:30 pm March 24 and expects to enter Mode 2 by early morning March 26.

Ongoing resident inspector coverage, and enhanced inspection oversight will continue to be utilized to evaluate operational evolutions.
