UNITED STATES NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION REGION I 2100 RENAISSANCE BOULEVARD, SUITE 100 KING OF PRUSSIA, PA 19406-2713 November 14, 2018 Mr. Bryan Senior Vice President, Exelon Generation Company, LLC President and Chief Nuclear Officer, Exelon Nuclear 4300 Winfield Road Warrenville, IL 60555
Dear Mr. Hanson:
On September 30, 2018, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) completed an inspection at Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station (NMPNS), Units 1 and 2. On October 24, 2018, the NRC inspectors discussed the results of this inspection with Mr. Peter Orphanos, Site Vice President, and other members of your staff. The results of this inspection are documented in the enclosed report.
NRC inspectors documented one finding of very low safety significance (Green) in this report. This finding involved a violation of NRC requirements. The NRC is treating this violation as a non-cited violation (NCV) consistent with Section 2.3.2.a of the Enforcement Policy.
The NRC's Office of Investigations, Region I Field Office, conducted an investigation (Case No. 1-2018-002) to determine whether operators deliberately failed to follow a procedure required by technical specifications. Based upon the evidence developed during the investigation, the NRC did not substantiate that licensed operators deliberately failed to follow a technical specifications required procedure.
Please note that final NRC investigation documents, such as the OI report described above, may be made available to the public under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), subject to redaction of information appropriate under the FOIA. Requests should be made in accordance with 10 CFR 9.23, Requests for Records. Additional information is available on the NRC website at http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/foia-privacy.html.
If you contest the violation or significance of this NCV, you should provide a response within 30 days of the date of this inspection report, with the basis for your denial, to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, ATTN: Document Control Desk, Washington, DC 20555-0001; with copies to the Regional Administrator, Region I; the Director, Office of Enforcement; and the NRC Resident Inspector at NMPNS. In addition, if you disagree with a cross-cutting aspect assignment, you should provide a response within 30 days of the date of this inspection report, with the basis for your disagreement, to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, ATTN:
Document Control Desk, Washington, DC, 20555-0001; with copies to the Regional Administrator, Region I, and the NRC Resident Inspector at NMPNS. This letter, its enclosure, and your response (if any) will be made available for public inspection and copying at http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/adams.html and the NRC Public Document Room in accordance with Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), Part 2.390, "Public Inspections, Exemptions, Requests for Withholding."

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) continued monitoring Exelon's performance at NMPNS Units 1 and 2 by conducting the baseline inspections described in this report in accordance with the Reactor Oversight Process. The Reactor Oversight Process is the NRC's program for overseeing the safe operation of commercial nuclear power reactors. Refer to https://www.nrc.gov/reactors/operating/oversight.html for more information. NRC identified and self-revealed findings, violations, and additional items are summarized in the table below.
List of Findings and Violations Failure to Ensure that Thermal Power is Less Than or Equal to the Licensed Power Limit Cornerstone Significance Cross-cutting Aspect Report Section Mitigating
Systems Green NCV 05000410/2018003-01
Closed H.1 - Human Performance,
Resources 71111.22 The inspectors identified a Green finding and associated non-cited violation (NCV) of the NMPNS Unit 2 Operating License (NPF-69), Condition 2.C(1), "Maximum Power Level," when Exelon did not ensure that thermal power was less than or equal to the licensed power limit of 3988 megawatts-thermal (MWth). Specifically, on multiple occurrences between May 22, 2018 and October 19, 2018, licensed operators in the main control room did not appropriately monitor and control 2-hour average thermal power at or below the licensed power limit. The inspectors determined the 2-hour average thermal power exceeded the licensed power limit outside of normal steady-state fluctuations, and did not take timely, effective corrective action to reduce thermal power below the licensed power limit when the 2-hour average was found to exceed the licensed power limit.
Unit 1 began the inspection period at rated thermal power. On September 8, 2018, operators reduced reactor power to 70 percent to perform surveillance testing and a control rod pattern adjustment. Operators restored Unit 1 to rated thermal power the same day. Unit 1 remained
===at or near rated thermal power for the remainder of the inspection period.
Unit 2 began the inspection period at rated thermal power. On August 27, 2018 the Unit 2 reactor automatically scrammed following a grid disturbance. On August 28, 2018, following evaluation of the event, operators commenced a reactor startup. Unit 2 reached rated thermal power on August 30, 2018. On August 31, 2018, operators reduced Unit 2 power to 80 percent to perform surveillance testing and to conduct a control rod pattern adjustment. Unit 2 was returned to rated thermal power on September 1, 2018, and remained at or near rated thermal power for the remainder of the inspection period.
Inspections were conducted using the appropriate portions of the inspection procedures (IPs) in effect at the beginning of the inspection unless otherwise noted. Currently approved IPs with their attached revision histories are located on the public website at http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-collections/insp-manual/inspection-procedure/index.html. Samples were declared complete when the IP requirements most appropriate to the inspection activity were met consistent with Inspection Manual Chapter (IMC) 2515, "Light-Water Reactor Inspection Program - Operations Phase." The inspectors reviewed selected procedures and records, observed activities, and interviewed personnel to assess licensee performance and compliance with Commission rules and regulations, license conditions, site procedures, and standards.

Failure to Ensure that Thermal Power is Less Than or Equal to the Licensed Power Limit Cornerstone Significance Cross-cutting Aspect Report Section Mitigating Systems Green NCV 05000410/2018003-01 Closed H.1 - Human Performance, Resources 71111.22 The inspectors identified a Green finding and associated NCV of the NMPNS Unit 2 Operating License (NPF-69), Condition 2.C(1), "Maximum Power Level," when Exelon did not ensure that thermal power was less than or equal to the LPL of 3988 MWth. Specifically, on multiple occurrences between May 22, 2018 and October 19, 2018, licensed operators in the main control room did not appropriately monitor and control 2-hour average thermal power at or below the licensed power limit. The inspectors determined the 2-hour average thermal power exceeded the licensed power limit outside of normal steady-state fluctuations and did not take timely, effective corrective action to reduce thermal power below the licensed power limit when the 2-hour average was found to exceed the licensed power limit.
During a Unit 2 main control room walkdown on July 26, 2018, the inspectors identified the 2-hour average thermal power to be above the 3988 MWth operating license limit. Following additional review, the inspectors identified the 3988 MWth operating license limit was exceeded periodically between May 22, 2018 and October 19, 2018. Among the instances, some of the longest durations include the following 19 instances where the 2-hour average thermal power was continuously above 3988 MWth:
May 22, 2018, for 56 minutes (1:42 AM to 2:38 AM) May 22, 2018, for 70 minutes (6:50 AM to 8:00 AM) May 22, 2018, for 96 minutes (10:07 AM to 11:43 AM) May 27, 2018, for 72 minutes (9:02 PM to 10:14 PM) June 24, 2018, for 72 minutes (7:52 AM to 9:04 AM) June 30, 2018 for 78 minutes (1:41 AM to 2:58 AM) July 8, 2018, for 103 minutes (11:41 AM to 1:24 PM) July 9, 2018, for 75 minutes (4:03 AM to 5:18 AM) July 10, 2018, for 55 minutes (4:27 AM to 5:22 AM) July 10, 2018, for 61 minutes (9:37 AM to 10:38 AM) July 13, 2018, for 56 minutes (7:51 PM to 8:47 PM) July 15, 2018, for 61 minutes (2:05 PM to 3:06 PM) July 26, 2018, for 74 minutes (6:04 AM to 7:18 AM) July 26, 2018, for 61 minutes (5:29 PM to 6:30 PM) September 19, 2018, for 60 minutes (6:01 PM to 7:01 PM) September 20, 2018, for 86 minutes (2:00 AM to 3:29 PM) September 22, 2018, for 73 minutes (5:16 AM to 6:29 AM) October 9, 2018, for 38 minutes (4:23 AM to 4:51 AM) October 19, 2018, for 48 minutes (3:03 PM to 3:51 PM)
Additionally, on May 21, 2018, at 3:01 PM, June 29, 2018, at 10:56 PM, July 9, 2018, at 12:19 AM, July 10, 2018, at 6:51 AM, and twice on September 19, 2018, at 4:05 AM and 9:48 AM, the 2-hour average thermal power was below the licensed power limit during steady-state operation then operators started to further open a recirculation flow control valve, which resulted in the 2-hour average thermal power subsequently exceeding the licensed power limit. This is noteworthy because Exelon's procedures state steady-state is only applicable when no operator action is taken.
N2-OP-101D, "Power Changes," Revision 02800, Section F, states that "if any of the following points are reached immediate operator action is required to ensure thermal power is trending
below 3988 MWth:"
1-second instant = 4028 MWth 1-minute average = 4008 MWth 10-minute average = 3998 MWth On June 24 from 7:44 AM to 7:55 AM the 10-minute average thermal power was above 3998 MWth, peaking at 3999 MWth. Contrary to N2-OP-101D, operators did not take timely effective action to reduce reactor power once the 10-minute average exceeded 3998 MWth.
Further, the following procedural steps are provided in N2-OP-101D for monitoring and controlling 2-hour average core thermal power during normal operations:
(F.2.1) CLOSELY MONITOR 2-hour average core thermal power during "Steady State" operation with goal of maintaining rolling two-hour thermal power average between 3984 MWth AND 3988 MWth.
(F.2.2) IF 2-hour average core thermal power is found to exceed 3988 MWth THEN TAKE ACTION to ensure thermal power is reduced to less than or equal to 3988 MWth AND CLOSELY MONITOR 2-hour average, to ensure it remains less than 3988 MWth for the shift.
Contrary to the requirements for monitoring the 2-hour average in accordance with N2-OP-101D, on June 30, 2018, from 1:41 AM to 2:58 AM, July 8, 2018, from 11:41 AM to 1:00 PM, July 10, 2018, from 4:27 AM to 5:22 AM, July 26, 2018, from 6:04 AM to 7:18 AM, September 19, 2018, from 6:01 PM to 7:01 PM, and October 19, 2018, from 3:03 PM to 3:51 PM, the operators did not perform any action to maintain thermal power less than the licensed power limit while the 2-hour average was above the licensed power limit.
The inspectors compared the N2-OP-101D procedure to the "Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) Position Statement," associated NRC Safety Evaluation, and NRC RIS 2007-21, Revision 1.
The inspectors determined Exelon revised N2-OP-101D in April 2010 following the issuance of NRC RIS 2007-21, Revision 1. Specifically, Revision 00800 included the below listed precaution and limitation while Revision 00900 did not include direction to perform immediate operator action if the 2-hour average thermal power exceeded the licensed power limit or include commensurate steps to what exists in the current revision of the procedure:
"If the 10 minute smoothed thermal power indication exceeds 3467 MWth [(previous licensed power limit prior to April 2012)], take immediate action to reduce power to less than licensed limit, monitor1 hour
average thermal power indication taking actions to maintain less than licensed limit, initiate a Condition Report noting highest power achieved (instantaneous and 10 minute smoothed) and make notification as
required by administrative procedures."
The inspectors concluded the supplemental documentation discussed above was not adequately translated into N2-OP-101D in order to ensure adherence to the licensed power limit. Specifically, as stated below, NEI Position Statement Guidance to Licensees on Complying with the Licensed Power Limit, as endored by the NRC Safety Evaluation Step 4.2(2) discusses timely operator action in Section 4.2(2):
"Closely monitor thermal power during steady state power operation with the goal of maintaining the two-hour thermal power average at or below the LPL. If the core thermal power average for a 2-hour period is found to exceed the LPL, take timely action to ensure that thermal power is less than or equal to LPL."
N2-OP-101D does not include a timeliness component to perform action to reduce thermal power whenever the 2-hour thermal average is discovered to be above the licensed power limit. There is no timeliness direction provided in N2-OP-101D for the operators to take action (e.g., prompt or immediate operator action) until 3998 MWth on the 10-minute average is reached (i.e., 10 MWth above the LPL). As a result, the inspectors determined N2-OP-101D allows operators to operate the reactor above the licensed thermal power limit for unspecified periods of time.
Further, the NRC Safety Evaluation states, "RIS 2007-21 states that slight changes in thermal power may occur due to expected variances in plant parameters." Specifically, "NEI
demonstrated to the NRC at a public meeting held June 12, 2008, that for short durations (1-minute average for thermal power) some peaks which lasted for less than one second exceed the thermal power limit but the average was below the licensed power limit." One of the specific examples provided in the supplemental documentation is bi-stable flow. Following the refueling outage in May 2018, a change in the severity of power oscillations due to bi-stable flow was observed as noted by Issue Report (IR) 04141573. These bi-stable flow oscillations result in a power change greater than the 4 MWth range goal provided for the operators in N2-OP-101D. Based on this information, the inspectors concluded the changes in power due to these more severe bi-stable flows are not considered to be consistent with the definition of small fluctuations described in the supplemental documentation.
Unit 2's Renewed Facility Operating License (NPF-69), Condition 2.C(1), "Maximum Power Level," states, "Exelon Generation is authorized to operate the Unit 2 facility at reactor core power levels not in excess of 3988 MWth (100 percent rated power)." Given the increased severity of bi-stable flow and duration of the instances where thermal power is above the licensed power limit, the inspectors concluded the power excursions above the licensed power limit were not small, short-term fluctuations and not due to normal fluctuations of plant parameters while operating under steady-state conditions at or near the licensed power limit. The inspectors determined the operators did not adequately maintain power below the licensed power limit when the 2-hour average exceeded the licensed power limit.
As an immediate corrective action, on July 30, 2018 Exelon generated IR 04160054 and subsequently IR 04187330 on October 24, 2018, to capture the inspectors' concerns regarding maintaining core thermal power at or below the licensed power limit. Exelon performed a benchmark with the rest of the Exelon fleet regarding power management. Exelon updated N2-OP-101D to direct operators to manage power using the 1-hour average for thermal power. Exelon also adjusted the thermal power operating band established in N2-OP-101D to establish additional margin to the licensed power limit.
Corrective Action Reference: IR 04160054 and IR 04187330 Performance Assessment Performance Deficiency: The inspectors determined that licensed operators did not ensure that thermal power was less than or equal to the licensed power limit when the 2-hour average exceeded the licensed power limit was contrary to the NMPNS Unit 2 Operating License (NPF-69), Condition 2.C(1), "Maximum Power Level," and was a performance deficiency.
Screening: The inspectors determined the performance deficiency was more than minor because if left uncorrected the performance deficiency had the potential to lead to a more significant safety concern. Specifically, operation above the licensed power limit reduced the analyzed margins to fuel cladding failure and could result in unanalyzed consequences during an initiating event. The inspectors reviewed the examples of minor issues in IMC 0612, "Power Reactor Inspection Reports," Appendix E, "Examples of Minor Issues," dated August 11, 2009, and noted there were two examples that were applicable to screening this issue of concern. Consistent with Example 8b, the operators' non-compliance with the Unit 2 license condition to operate the reactor at or below rated thermal power could have the potential to lead to a more significant safety concern. Also, consistent with Example 8c, the inspectors determined operator actions to raise and maintain thermal power above rated thermal power, and the failure to promptly restore Unit 2 to rated thermal power once exceeded could have the potential to lead to a more significant safety concern.
Significance: The inspectors assessed the significance of the finding using IMC 0609, Appendix A, "The Significance Determination Process (SDP) for Findings At-Power," dated June 19, 2012. The inspectors performed a Phase 1 SDP review of this finding using the guidance provided in IMC 0609, Appendix A, Ex hibit 2, "Mitigating System Screening Questions," and determined this finding would require evaluation using IMC 0609, Appendix M, because the finding was the result of a mismanagement of reactivity by licensed reactor operators (e.g., reactor power exceeding the licensed power limit, inability to anticipate and control changes in reactivity during operations). The finding screened as very low safety significance (Green) based on a qualitative evaluation of the conditions and consequences of the performance issue not resulting in a violation of the core thermal limits.
This assessment is consistent with those documented for similar issues in Prairie Island Nuclear Generating Plant Integrated Inspection Report 05000282/2009002, 05000306/2009002 and Fermi Power Plant Integrated Inspection Report 05000341/2015001. The maximum power reached at Unit 2 was 100.28 percent (3999 MWth/3988 MWth). The inadequate monitoring and control of reactor power did not result in exceeding the two percent reactor thermal power allowance contained in the safety analysis. Therefore, the safety analysis remained bounded for all instances described herein when the licensed power limit was exceeded.
Cross-Cutting Aspect: The inspectors determined that the finding had a cross-cutting aspect of Resources within the cross-cutting area of Human Performance because Exelon did not provide adequate guidance in N2-OP-101D to take timely action to restore and maintain reactor power at or below the licensed power limit. [H.1]
Enforcement Violation: Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station Unit 2 Operating License (NPF-69), Condition 2.C(1), "Maximum Power Level," specifies, in part, "Exelon Generation is authorized to operate the facility at reactor core power levels not in excess of 3988 megawatts thermal (100 percent rated power)."
Contrary to the above, between May 22, 2018, and October 19, 2018, Exelon operated Unit 2 at reactor core power levels in exceedance of the LPL, 3988 MWth. Specifically, the inspectors identified numerous instances when the 3988 MWth operating license limit was exceeded between May 22, 2018 and October 19, 2018, on multiple occasions for extended periods of time.

Observations 71152 Annual Followup of Selected Isssues March 20, 2017 reactor scram following reactor pressure oscillations
The inspectors conducted a problem identification and resolution inspection sample to review the cause evaluation for IR 03987066, regarding a reactor scram that occurred on March 20, 2017 due to a mechanical pressure regulator malfunction. The inspectors reviewed the evaluation for adequacy and if corrective actions were timely.
Inspectors reviewed the timeline established in operator logs during the time of the event and reported in LER 05000220/2017-002-00, "Manual Reactor Scram due to Pressure Oscillations" on May 18, 2017. Following the event Exelon wrote IR 03987066 and conducted a Corrective Action Program Evaluation (CAPE), which is a Level 2 cause evaluation in accordance with PI-AA-120, "Issue Identification and Screening Process," Revision 008.
On March 19, 2017, at 7:25 PM, the electronic pressure regulator was removed from service, due to a known degraded condition at lower power, placing Unit 1 on the mechanical pressure regulator, the second of two pressure control systems. The Unit 1 main generator was offline and main turbine trip testing was being conducted as part of the scheduled reactor shutdown, which was in-progress at the time of the scram. Following the second main turbine trip on March 20, 2017, at 2:06 AM, with reactor power at approximately 14 percent, the main turbine bypass valves began cycling due to an issue with the mechanical pressure regulator, resulting in 2-3 psig reactor pressure oscillations. Throughout the power oscillations, licensed operators continued to insert control rods as part of the shutdown. At approximately 4 percent reactor power, Unit 1 operators recognized the mechanical pressure regulator oscillations resulted in reactor pressure changes, turbine bypass valve movement, and corresponding
power oscillations visible on the average pow er range monitors and the intermediate range monitors instruments. On March 20, 2017, at 2:27 AM, operators at Unit 1 inserted a manual reactor scram due to pressure oscillations exceeding procedural limits, established in N1-SOP-31.2, Pressure Regulator Malfunction, Revision 00300.
N1-SOP-31.2, has an override to scram the reactor if "> 2 psi pressure oscillations are experienced after transfer to the standby pressure regulator." Or, "> +/- 3 % average power range monitor oscillations are experienced after transfer to the standby pressure regulator." Additionally following the flow chart in N1-SOP-31.2, if both the EPR and MPR are not controlling pressure and, "Pressure is not under control," the operators are also directed to scram the reactor. The logs stated that at 2:10 AM operators entered N1-SOP-31.2 due to indications of pressure oscillations of 2-3 psi. The inspectors questioned why the action to scram the reactor was not taken until 2:27 AM, given the post transient review written operator statements and CAPE stated the observed conditions, which met the scram override in the first step of N1-SOP-31.2.
Following the scram, Exelon conducted a post transient review and did not identify any issues with crew performance. Based on the inspectors concerns that operators did not take timely actions as required by procedures based upon the operator logs, post transient review written operator statements, CAPE and confirmed by LER 05000/2017-002-00 which contained the
same statements, the NRC launched an Office of Investigations investigation (1-2018-002) to determine if operators willfully did not follow N1-SOP-31.2 instructions to scram the reactor.
Based upon the evidence developed during the investigation, the NRC did not substantiate that licensed operators deliberately failed to follow a Technical Specifications required procedure. Operator logs and the LER 05000220/2017-002-00 were determined to be incorrectly documented, which was captured in IR 04187343.
The inspectors identified the following performance deficiencies during their review: Operator logs and basic event timeline were inaccurate and out of order Operators did not identify entry criteria were met for N1-SOP-31.2 for 14 minutes while indications were available in the main control room, and some of those indications were noted by operators based on post transient review written operator statements Operators did not enter N1-SOP-1.5, Unplanned Rx Power Change, Revision 00500, when "unplanned power change of more than 2%" was occurring Operators did not conduct an adequate 4.0 Critique, in accordance with OP-AA-101-113-1006, 4.0 Crew Critique Guidelines, Revision 009 These performance deficiencies were re viewed using NRC IMC 0612, Appendix B and determined to be minor since operators did eventually enter the appropriate procedure and did manually scram Unit 1 when the conditions were recognized based on testimony under oath.
Inspectors noted that N1-SOP-31.2 lacked clarity regarding which path to take when a pressure regulator is already out of service and there is no backup available.
The inspectors also noted that there was no additional visual indication to aid operators in recognizing the reactor pressure oscillations in a timely manner due to the narrow range pressure indication being out of service due to the reactor being at a reduced power during the shutdown. Also, the turbine trip and HPCI actuation at 2:16 AM was a distraction which contributed to operators not entering N1-SOP 31.2 in a timely manner. The HPCI initiation was documented in operator logs, however this was not captured in LER 05000220/2017-002-00.
Exelon entered the resident inspectors' observations (IR 04070755) into the corrective action program and evaluated the usage of N1-SOP-31.2. Based upon this review, the procedure was revised to expand the range of pressure oscillation to 4 psig before taking action to scram the reactor. Exelon also entered the resident inspectors' observations concerning an inadequate 4.0 critique of operator actions during the post trip review (IR 04073439) and conducted an evaluation. Exelon recognized during the OI investigation that the timeline was not adequate, and generated IR 04091110 on January 7, 2018. Exelon updated the event timeline and issued LER 05000220/2017-002-01 on August 18, 2018 to reflect the revised timeline after the NRC OI completed on-site interviews.
Inspectors determined the causal evaluation lacked the expected level of self-criticality needed to identify performance issues related to the March 2017 scram. In conclusion, while inspectors identified numerous performance deficiencies with both operator performance and the subsequent causal evaluation, the underlying issues are considered minor, after a new timeline was established for the scram.
Observations 71152 Annual Followup of Selected Isssues Division II Emergency Diesel Generator Loss of Offsite Power/Loss of Coolant Accident testing failure to maintain voltage within the limit specified in Technical Specifications
The inspectors reviewed the work group evaluation, the corrective actions taken, the failure analysis, and the past operability regarding the deficiencies discovered on the Division II emergency diesel generatorautomatic voltage regulator. The inspectors concluded that the evaluation was adequate, the extent of condition was reasonable, and the corrective actions were timely.
Minor Violation 71153 Follow-up of Events and Notices of Enforcement Discretion This violation of minor significance was identified by inspectors and has been entered into the licensee's corrective action program, consistent with the NRC Enforcement Policy. Mnior Violation: During the review of Licensee Event Report (LER) 05000220/2017-002-01, Manual Reactor Scram Due to Presesure Oscillations, the inspectors identified a minor violation of 10 CFR 50.9, Completeness and accuracy of information. The LER was found to be inaccurate. Specifically, the LER timeline contained inaccurancies regarding the time operators entered a special operating procedure and did not include an actuation of high-pressure coolant injection (HPCI). The timeline stated at 2:10 AM operators entered the special operating procedure for Pressure Regulator Malfunction, due to reactor pressure oscillations of 2-3 psig. At 2:27 AM operators inserted a manual scram of the reactor due to pressure oscillations exceeding procedural limits.
This information was confirmed by a review of the operational logs for March 20, 2017.
During OI Investigation 1-2018-002, it was determined that this entry was not accurate and although an exact time could not be established is was estimated to have been at 2:20 AM vice 2:10 AM. Additionally the timeline did not include a mention that at 2:16 AM unexpected turbine trip signal was received and HPCI was initiated due to a tagging error. Operators reset HPCI at 2:18 AM and restored main feedwater flow to restore Reactor Vessel water level. A sixty day telephone notification instead of a written licensee event report was conducted for this invalid initiation of HPCI was completed on May, 11, 2017, as EN 52747 as
allowed by 10 CFR 50.73(a)(2)(iv).
Screening: Violations involving the submittal of inaccrurate or incomplete information are
evaluated under Traditional Enforecement because they impact the NRC's regulatory process. Accordingly, the inspectors evlauted this issue against the example violations in Section 6.9 of the NRC Enforcement Policy. In spectors concluded that the violation is of minor safety significance because the inaccurate information did not change the NRC's review of the licensee event report.
10 CFR 50.9 requires that information provided to the Commission by a licensee shall be complete and accurate in all material respects. Contrary to the above, on June 22, 2015, Entergy provided information to the Commission that was not complete and accurate in all material respects. In the licensee event report, Exelon documented incorrect information that resulted in the NRC launching a substation further inquiry (OI investigation),
but did not substantiate that licensed operators deliberately failed to follow a Technical Specifications required procedure.
Exelon identified the inaccuracy and entered the issue into the corrective action program (IR 04091110) on January 7, 2018, and submitted LER 05000220/2017-002-01 on August 18, 2018, revising the timeline to show operators entering N1-SOP-31.2 at 2:20 AM vice 2:10 AM.
The disposition of this violation closed Licensee Event Report 05000220/2017-002-01.
EXIT MEETINGS AND DEBRIEFS
The inspectors confirmed that proprietary information was controlled to protect from public disclosure.
On October 24, 2018, the inspectors presented the quarterly resident inspection results to Mr. Peter Orphanos, Site Vice President, and other members of the Exelon staff.
