The following was received from the Point Beach Station Radiation Protection Manager (RPM) via phone call to the Headquarters Operations Officer:
Per 10 CFR 20.1906(d)(1), the Point Beach Station RPM reported to the NRC receipt of a package of radioactive material (new fuel shipment) with removable surface contamination greater than NRC reporting limits. The package was received Tuesday, August 24, 2021, at 0645 CDT. The package was surveyed and it was determined that the external surface of the package contained removable contamination that exceeded the regulatory limit of 240 dpm/cm2 for beta-gamma emitters. The measured level of removable contamination was 337.3 dpm/cm2 for beta-gamma emitters and contained Cobalt 60. The licensee's corrective actions were to conduct additional smears of the package, trailer, and truck, and to frisk the truck driver to ensure no further contamination. No contamination has been identified.
