Following the fuel tag fiasco (Fission Stories #70) and the earlier, equally embarrassing, misadventure with a plastic booty (Fission Stories #69), the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) established a tracking program for anything that dropped into the reactor vessel or spent fuel pool at their Browns Ferry nuclear plant in Alabama. A log sheet was maintained on a metal clipboard tied to the refueling platform railing like shown in the figure above. Any time something fell into the water and could not be immediately retrieved, it was entered on the log sheet. When the item was later recovered, its removal was recorded on the log. At the end of the refueling outage, all of the unrecovered items on the lost article log had to be located and retrieved or analyzed.
