Discussion:

On March 17, 2007, the Pilgrim reactor was manually shutdown due to increasing unidentified drywell leakage.
Upon drywell entry, a steam leak was identified from the packing of a 6-inch reactor water cleanup valve. The
valve was repacked and will be tested during plant heatup/pressurization. Startup commenced at approximately
6:00 a.m. on March 19, 2007.
