Specifically, a portion of a normal permitted release was pumped to the ground, which was not an approved release pathway. After being notified of the release, the NRC resident inspectors responded to the Circulating Water Blowdown building and verified that the unauthorized leakage path was isolated and that an approved path was now being utilized. The NRC determined that this event posed no immediate safety or public health concern. However, the use of an unauthorized path to discharge radioactive material to the environment raises questions and concerns. The NRC resident inspectors and radiation protection specialists will continue to closely monitor this event and conduct a thorough, independent inspection.

The results of all of these inspections will be documented in a future inspection report.
