DUKE POWER CO. RESPONSE TO NRC NOTIFICATION OF VIOLATION

 CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Duke Power Co. (NYSE: DUK), was notified today by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission of a propon? at Catawba Nuclear Station.
 The NRC's notice relates to the availability of the nuclear service water system, which supplies cooling water to plant equipment during normal and emergency operation.
 The nuclear service water system includes two redundant cooling systems that are utilized by both Catawba units. During testing on Feb. 25 of this year, technicians identified that switch settings on three of four valves might have prevented the operation of the system as designed under extreme and unusual plant conditions. Valve switch settings were immediately reset to ensure operability.
 Duke stresses that station personnel could effectively have responded to highly unlikely emergency conditions during the entire period identified by the NRC.
 Duke has 30 days to respond to the NRC's notification.
