The NRC has issued the attached Information Notice 2009-17 to alert fixed gauge specific and general licensees about the potential for the failure of shutter closure mechanisms on fixed gauges and the requirements for reporting these events to the Illinois Emergency Management Agency, Division of Nuclear Safety. It is expected that recipients will review the information for applicability to their facilities and consider actions, as appropriate, to avoid similar incidents.

Recommendations contained in this Information Notice are not new requirements; therefore, neither specific action nor written response is required. If you have any questions, please contact our office at (217) 785-9947.
