The following was received from Global Nuclear Fuels, America:
"At 1030 (EDT) on July 21st, 2020, the New Hanover County Deputy Fire Marshall was notified per State code requirements that the fire suppression system for the Fuel Manufacturing Operation Sandblast Building was impaired. An underground pipe that feeds water to the sprinkler system had developed a leak. The building is normally unoccupied and no other buildings are affected. Compensatory measures were enacted and communicated to the Deputy Fire Marshall. Because the New Hanover County Deputy Fire Marshall was notified, a concurrent notification to the NRC Operations Center is being made per 10 CFR 70, Appendix A(c)."
The licensee will notify Region 2.
