Project Description:

Currently the station is operating with a reduced capacity of EDG Fuel Oil Storage from the amount required by the operating license and governing standards. This places the EDG system in an Operable but Degraded or Non-conforming Condition (ODNC). The NRC does not accept indefinite ODNC conditions and expects the condition to be corrected promptly, though the condition has existed for more than ten years. The NRC recently issued a green violation to the station for untimely corrective action which requires the station to evaluate the

condition and take appropriate corrective actions. Failure to correct the condition could result in additional repeat violations, which could lead to enforcement actions based on escalating nuclear safety significance.  The objective of this project is to resolve the ODNC and to restore needed operating margin. Two (2) new 16,000-gallon safety-related tanks would be added to the existing EDG system, one (1) for each of the A & B EDGs. This will not only bring the station back into full compliance with its normal operating license and industry standards, but will provide much needed additional margin to the Emergency Diesel Generating safety system and reduce the risk of lost generation.
