NEWS RELEASE REGARDING ARREST OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT WORKING AT PALO VERDE

"The following event description is based on information currently available. If through subsequent reviews of this event, additional information is identified that is pertinent to this event or alters the information being provided at this time, a follow-up notification will be made via the ENS or under the reporting requirements of 10CFR50.73.

"This event is being reported as a newsworthy concern to the public under 10 CFR 50.72(b)(2)(xi).

"Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station (PVNGS) was notified that the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) issued a news release at 1411 on July 14, 2011, regarding entrance to the PVNGS site property by an individual who MCSO alleged to be an undocumented immigrant.

"The individual had entered Palo Verde's Security Owner Controlled Area on July 13, 2011, but was not granted access to the site's Protected Areas surrounding the three units and Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation. PVNGS Security contacted MCSO to validate the identification card furnished by the individual at the Security Owner Controlled Area. MCSO determined the identification card to be suspicious, responded to the site, detained the individual, and transported him off-site for questioning.

"The station notified NRC Resident Inspectors and Region IV staff of the condition on July 13, 2011.

"Arizona Public Service is planning to issue a news release and is responding to media inquiries regarding the matter."
