Event Text

CONTROL ROOM EMERGENCY VENTILATION AC SYSTEM INOPERABLE

"On September 21, 2017 at 1730 [CDT] the Control Room Emergency Ventilation Air Condition (CREV AC) system was declared inoperable due a refrigerant leak from the air conditioning compressor. As a result, Technical Specification 3.7.5 Condition A was entered for Units One and Two.

"The CREV AC system maintains a habitable control room environment and ensures the operability of components in the control room emergency zone during accident conditions.

"This notification is being made in accordance with 10CFR50.72(b)(3)(v)(D) because the CREV system is a single train system. The loss of CREV AC could impact the plant’s ability to mitigate the consequences of an accident."

The NRC Resident Inspector has been notified.
