PEACH BOTTOM UNIT 2 TAKEN OUT OF SERVICE FOR BRIEF MAINTENANCE OUTAGE

PEACH BOTTOM UNIT 2 TAKEN OUT OF SERVICE FOR BRIEF MAINTENANCE OUTAGE
 PHILADELPHIA, March 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Philadelphia Electric Company (NYSE: PE) said today that Unit 2 at the Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station in York County, Pa., was taken out of service early this morning for maintenance.
 PE said the unit was manually shut down due to the inoperability of certain reactor instrumentation. During a routine inspection, fluctuations were found on reactor water level monitors. One of four water level channels was reading inaccurately. In order to repair the channel, the shut down was required and completed at 3:14 a.m.
 Unit 2 will be out of service for about one week. Station personnel will resolve the situation and perform other maintenance tasks.
 Unit 2 was operating at full power at the time, and Unit 3 continues to operate at full power unaffected by the outage.
 PE said all necessary federal, state and local officials were notified.
