PERRY POWER PLANT SHUTS DOWN

 PERRY, Ohio, March 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The Perry Power Plant was shut down today due to a break in a pipe that provides water used to cool various non-safety related equipment. This water is pumped directly from Lake Erie and is not radioactive.
 Operators safely shut the plant down at 3:25 p.m. when a break in the plant's Service Water supply line occurred. This system typically supplies water to auxiliary non-safety systems within the plant. Operators stopped the leak by 4:05 p.m. by shutting down the service water system.
 The event did not interfere with the safe shutdown of the plant.
 The water pipe break occurred on plant property just west of the plant's building complex. Some water entered plant buildings.
 An Alert, the second lowest of four emergency classifications as outlined by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, was declared at 3:35 p.m.
 In accordance with federal regulations, the state of Ohio; Ashtabula, Geuaga, and Lake Counties; and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission have been notified.
 The plant, located in Perry, Ohio, is operated by the Cleveland Electric Illuminating Company.
