Fukushima disaster damages claim form distributed

Tokyo Electric Power Company has begun distributing application forms to property owners seeking compensation for land and buildings in a nuclear no-entry zone near the Fukushima Daiichi power plant.

The operator of the damaged nuclear plant is sending the forms to about 50,000 households who evacuated from 11 affected municipalities after the March 2011 accident.

It estimates that the total compensation could reach 7.6 billion dollars.

Tokyo Electric compiles reform plan

Tokyo Electric Power Company, or TEPCO, has compiled a reform plan based on lessons learned from the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

A third-party panel set up by TEPCO approved on Friday the plan drawn up by an in-house task force.

TEPCO launched the task force after it was criticized for defending its response to the accident in a report it put together following an internal probe.

The task force says the company should not put all the blame for the accident on the huge tsunami that hit the plant on March 11th, 2011. It concluded that the accident would have been preventable if the company had been fully prepared for the tsunami.

Tohoku Electric Power scraps plan for new nuke plant

TOKYO — A Japanese utility has scrapped plans to build a nuclear plant near the site of a nuclear disaster two years ago.

Tohoku Electric Power Co said Thursday that strong protests from local communities as well as radiation leaks at the proposed site of the new power station make the project unworkable. The company wanted to build a plant north of the Fukushima Daiichi plant that was destroyed by a tsunami that struck after a huge earthquake on March 11, 2011.

But the utility said land acquisition and environmental surveys could not be completed due to contamination.

1st anniv. marked of weekly anti-nuclear rallies outside PM's office

The first anniversary was marked Friday of the weekly anti-nuclear demonstrations in front of the prime minister's office, which have grown steadily partly due to the use of social media to draw participants.

At the latest rally, the 48th organized by the Metropolitan Coalition Against Nukes, demonstrators chanted "Get rid of nuclear power plants" and "Don't restart them."

According to the organizer, people have taken to the streets in Tokyo's Nagatacho political district every Friday from 6 p.m. since March 29, 2012, to call for the elimination of nuclear power following the 2011 Fukushima nuclear crisis.

Google Adds Street Views Inside Japan Nuclear Zone

Concrete rubble litters streets lined with shuttered shops and dark windows. A collapsed roof juts from the ground. A ship sits stranded on a stretch of dirt flattened when the tsunami roared across the coastline. There isn't a person in sight.

Google Street View is giving the world a rare glimpse into one of Japan's eerie ghost towns, created when the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami sparked a nuclear disaster that has left the area uninhabitable.

Now it is taking people inside Japan's nuclear no-go zone, to the city of Namie, whose 21,000 residents have been unable to return to live since they fled the radiation spewing from the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant two years ago.

Judge throws out most Coldwater Creek cancer claims
[link to www.stltoday.com]

[snip]

A federal judge has dismissed all but one claim in lawsuits filed against the chemical company Mallinckrodt by 29 people who believe their cancers were caused by the radioactive contamination of Coldwater Creek.

The eighth claim filed under a federal law involving injuries caused by exposure to nuclear materials was not dismissed. But Fleissig said lawyers for the residents have until May 10 to show that the injuries occurred no more than five years before the suit was filed, to meet Missouri’s statute of limitation rules.

Coldwater Creek was contaminated by nuclear waste from the production of atomic bomb materials by the Mallinckrodt company in downtown St. Louis. After World War II, radioactive byproducts were dumped at an open storage site by the airport and buried near Coldwater Creek, which borders the waste site to the west. By the 1990s, soil and water samples from the creek showed unsafe radiation levels. The Army Corps of Engineers has nearly completed its cleanup of the airport waste sites and the creek.

Scientists are almost always stumped by investigations into suspected cancer clusters because of the complexity of the disease and the difficulty in measuring exposures to carcinogens. Thousands of potential clusters are reported to health departments in the U.S. each year, but most instances that do turn up high cancer rates are never linked to a specific cause.

TVA had breakdown in quality control for nuclear parts: US NRC
[link to www.platts.com]

[snip]

The Tennessee Valley Authority experienced a "breakdown" in a quality assurance program designed to ensure the safety of commercial parts used in a nuclear reactor under construction, the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission said in a report made public Thursday.

NRC said it found three apparent violations of agency rules for dedication of commercial parts for use in TVA's 1,100-MW Watts Bar-2 nuclear generating unit being built in Tennessee. The apparent violations will be reviewed to determine how serious they are, but initial estimates show it is a problem that could result in additional inspections and fines, the agency said in the inspection report.

TVA representatives said during a meeting with NRC officials Thursday in Atlanta that the commercial-grade dedication failing extended to its six-unit operating nuclear fleet and it is reviewing thousands of parts already installed in plants to ensure they will meet their safety function.

Report: More study needed on nuke-cancer link
[link to www.timesonline.com]

[snip]



Cancer rates in California’s Sacramento County have decreased since the shutdown of the Rancho Seco nuclear reactor in Sacramento County in 1989, a new study claims.

But the study, the first long-term analysis to examine population health impacts from a U.S. nuclear reactor’s closure, stops short of making a direct connection between those lower rates and the plant’s closure.

The report found that the most notable decreases in cancer rates were in women, Hispanics and children — with 4,319 fewer cancers over the 20 years since the plant’s closure, and decreases in cancer cases in 28 of 31 categories, 14 of which are significant, the study says.

The article, “Long-Term Local Cancer Reductions Following Nuclear Plant Shutdown,” also was authored by toxicologist Janette Sherman, a former adjunct professor at Western Michigan University.

The study also says that the potential risks of living near a nuclear facility are something that millions of Americans deal with on a daily basis.

“The aging 104 U.S. reactors at 65 plants affect many Americans,” it says. “According to the 2010 U.S. Census, over 18 million Americans live within 20 miles of a nuclear power plant, and over 116 million live within 50 miles.”

TOKYO —

The utility that operates Japan’s crippled atomic plant said Friday that it deserves most of the blame for the country’s nuclear crisis, in its strongest remarks about its own shortcomings.

Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) acknowledged in a report that it was not adequately prepared to deal with the massive earthquake and tsunami that ravaged northeastern Japan in March 2011. The twin disasters cut power at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, causing meltdowns at three reactors. Massive radiation leaks contaminated air, water and soil around the plant, forcing about 160,000 residents to evacuate.

“Our safety culture, skills and ability were all insufficient,” TEPCO President Naomi Hirose told a news conference. “We must humbly accept our failure to prevent the accident, which we should have avoided by using our wisdom and human resources to be better prepared.”

TEPCO to test new water decontamination device

The operator of the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant will begin testing a new device to decontaminate radioactive wastewater massing at the facility.

Tokyo Electric Power Company will test-run the device from Saturday. The device can filter 62 radioactive substances that older models could not remove.

Company officials say they will initially use just one of 3 such devices as they need to take a cautious approach to handling the high-level radioactive water.

TEPCO plans to test the device for about 4 months. The company has yet to indicate when it will test the remaining 2 devices and put them into full-scale operation.

TEPCO starts test of new water purification system at Fukushima plant

The operator of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant said Saturday it began a trial run of a new facility to remove about 60 types of radioactive substances from cooling water for the plant's damaged reactors.

Full-fledged operation of the multinuclide removal facility called the advanced liquid processing system or ALPS will start in about four months after its performance is verified, Tokyo Electric Power Co. said.

ALPS has been installed to clean the contaminated water flowing through a 4-kilometer loop for cooling the crippled reactors.

In-Depth Look at Aftermath of Idled Sacramento Reactor Finds Cancer Declines for Women, Hispanics and Children; Implications Seen for Shutdown Reactors in CA, CT, IL, NY, OR, PA, and RI.

WASHINGTON, March 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The first long-term study of the full-population health impacts of the closure of a U.S. nuclear reactor found 4,319 fewer cancers over 20 years, with declines in cancer incidence in 28 of 31 categories (14 of them statistically significant), including notable drops in cancer for women, Hispanics and children.

At the heart of the article is the Rancho Seco nuclear reactor project in Sacramento County,  an area with a relatively large 2010 population of more than 1.4 million.  Rancho Seco has been closed for over 23 years, providing a long period to examine post-shutdown local health patterns.

Areva CEO says would be interested in Urenco stake

French nuclear group Areva (AREVA.PA) would be interested in taking a stake in uranium enrichment firm Urenco, Areva's CEO was quoted as saying on Saturday.

Urenco, owned by the British and Dutch states and Germany's two top utilities, is up for sale and Areva - which already has a partnership with Urenco - is believed to be a leading contender to buy a stake in the firm. Areva so far had played down its possible interest in Urenco.

Following Germany's decision to phase out nuclear energy, German utilities RWE (RWEG.DE) and E.ON (EONGn.DE) have decided to sell their combined 33 percent stake. The UK and the Netherlands also want to sell their 33 percent stakes.

Urenco is the world's second-largest uranium enrichment firm after Russia's Tenex and claims a global market share of 31 percent. Areva and U.S. USEC are also major nuclear fuel producers.
