CONDITIONS PRIOR TO EVENT

Unit 1 — Mode 1, approximately 100 percent Rated Thermal Power Unit 2 — Mode 1, approximately 100 percent Rated Thermal Power There were no structures, systems, or components that were inoperable at the start of the event that contributed to the event.

EVENT DESCRIPTION

On November 30, 2017 at 1026, the Susquehanna Control Room received indication that a loss of Secondary Containment Zone 2 differential pressure had occurred. Control Room operators noted a differential pressure of 0" Water Column (WC) for several seconds, followed by a high differential pressure of 0.5" WC. System differential pressure was restored to normal in 3 minutes. The cause of the pressure swings is under investigation. Zone 2 differential pressures being less than 0.25" WC constitutes a loss of Secondary Containment based on not meeting requirements of Technical Specification (T.S.) 3.6.4.1 Surveillance Requirement 3.6.4.1.

There were no actual consequences to the health and safety of the public as a result of this event.

The condition is being reported in accorance with 10 CFR 50.73(a)(2)(v)(C) as a condition that could have prevented fulfillment of a safety function. This event was reported in ENS 53098 under 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(v)(c). There is no redundant Susquehanna Secondary Containment system.
