The maintenance is scheduled to begin on 6/25/2014 at 00:00 [CDT], and is expected to last approximately 5 hours. During this maintenance window, various communication connections will be intermittently interrupted for short periods of time. Affected communication connections include some local telephone company lines, Federal Telephone System, ERDS, the Monticello's NRC office, and automatic ring down lines to the state of Minnesota's Emergency Operations Center. "During the planned maintenance window, communications to offsite will be available via radios, cell phones, and satellite communications. This ensures that the plant can adequately communicate with the NRC, state, and local agencies to ensure protection of the health and safety of the general public. "The NRC Resident Inspector has been notified of the planned telecommunications maintenance." Licensee also notified the Minnesota State Duty Officer and the Wright and Sherburne County Sheriff dispatchers. TNS 30FurigayJof-140626-4779687 30FurigayJof
