Surprise, surprise...

Radioactive water leak from pipe confirmed at Fukushima plant

Another radioactive leak was detected at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant on Thursday while workers were pumping out contaminated water from one of the troubled underground tanks, Tokyo Electric Power Co. said.

Around 22 liters of radioactive water has leaked from a junction of the piping for transferring liquid, not from the tanks themselves. The water seeped into the soil covering the upper part of the tank, but has not spread outside the site, TEPCO said.

The incident occurred only a day after the utility announced a plan to remove all the highly radioactive water stored in the underground tanks to more reliable containers by the end of June to address the risk of further leaks from the tanks.

Feds sound alarm on nuclear evacuations

Regulators and congressional investigators clashed today over a new report warning that in the event of an accident at a nuclear plant, panicking residents from outside the official evacuation zone might jam the roads and prevent others from escaping.

The report by the Government Accountability Office, which acts as the investigative arm of Congress, challenges a three-decade-old fundamental of emergency planning around American nuclear power plants: that preparations for evacuation should focus on people who live within 10 miles of the site.

The GAO found that people living beyond the official 10-mile evacuation zone might be so frightened by the prospect of spreading radiation that they would flee of their own accord, clog roads, and delay the escape of others. The investigators said regulators have never properly studied how many people beyond 10 miles would make their own decisions to take flight, prompting what is called a "shadow evacuation."

As a result, the GAO report says, "evacuation time estimates may not accurately consider the impact of shadow evacuations."

Slovakia signals ready to work with Rosatom on nuclear power

Slovakia signalled Wednesday it is ready to team up with Russia's Rosatom if Czech energy giant CEZ walks out of a deal on the construction of a new nuclear reactor.

"CEZ is considering selling its stake in a joint project with Slovakia to Rosatom," the leftist government led Prime Minister Robert Fico, a staunch supporter of nuclear energy, said on its website.

Fukushima may delay nuclear energy growth

Japan's Fukushima nuclear disaster may delay the growth of the world nuclear energy market by a decade but will not reverse it, a nuclear power expert says.

Alan McDonald, program coordinator of the International Atomic Energy Agency, made the prediction Wednesday at the World Nuclear Fuel Cycle conference in Singapore, China's state-run Xinhua News Agency reported.

The Fukushima accident "has effectively delayed projected growth by 10 years, with the capacity that was projected for 2020 before the accident now being projected for 2030," he said.

Despite the revised forecast, the installed capacity is still projected to grow by 25 percent to 100 percent by 2030, he added.

Staff at federal agency signals ‘no hazard’ with California nuclear plant run at lower power

LOS ANGELES — Federal regulators signaled Wednesday that running California’s San Onofre nuclear power plant at reduced power would not pose a significant safety risk — a key step toward a possible restart of one of the idled reactors.

The preliminary ruling from Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff represents a victory for operator Southern California Edison, which is pushing for a restart by June and has argued for months that the Unit 2 reactor is safe to run at lower power.

But Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., called plans to restart the plant before an investigation is complete “dangerous and premature.”

“It makes absolutely no sense to even consider taking any steps to reopen San Onofre until these investigations look at every aspect of reopening the plant,” Boxer said in a statement.

Rep. Ed Markey, D-Mass., said in a statement issued jointly with Boxer’s that the commission was showing “blatant disregard for the safety of tens of millions of people.”

NRC increasing oversight of nuke plant

SALEM TWP. - Although PPL's Susquehanna Steam power plant operated safely in 2012, the federal nuclear oversight agency is keeping a more watchful eye on the facility.

Members of Susquehanna Steam management told a group of officials from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission during a public meeting Wednesday they are cooperating with the corrective actions they're supposed to implement.

The NRC determined in its annual performance review that the Unit 1 reactor only needs normal oversight, but the Unit 2 reactor needs more scrutiny due to two unplanned shutdowns, one on Nov. 9 and the other on Dec. 19.

The Nov. 9 shutdown was due to a malfunction of the computer that controls the reactor's water level, and the Dec. 19 shutdown resulted from the failure of a valve which feeds water to the reactor to produce steam. A third shutdown occurred on Dec. 16 during routine testing of a valve on the main turbine system of Unit 2.

More than three unplanned shutdowns in 7,000 hours of operation lead to more oversight by the NRC, the agency's spokesman Neil Sheehan said.

Fukushima plant abandoning leaky underground pools

TOKYO — The operator of Japan’s crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant said Wednesday it will abandon seven underground reservoirs storing radioactive water after three of them sprang leaks.

The contaminated water will be transferred to more reliable containers on the ground, possibly by early June, to avoid risks of further leaks, Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) President Naomi Hirose told a news conference.

“We have yet to grasp the cause of the leaks. But we will strengthen monitoring activities so as to prevent the water from flowing into the sea,” he said. “We want to transfer the contaminated water from the underground reservoirs as soon as possible.”

Fukushima schoolchildren clear of cesium

Schoolchildren living near the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant have come up clear of radioactive cesium in internal-exposure screenings.

Researchers led by the University of Tokyo examined roughly 1,400 elementary and junior high school children in Miharumachi, 50 kilometers from the crippled plant.

They carried out the tests from September to November last year.

Researchers said levels of cesium 137 in all tested children were below the detectable amount of 300 becquerels.

The same researchers implemented similar tests between November 2011 and February 2012. They found then up to 1,300 becquerels of cesium 137 in 54 children.

Researchers say the new results show that checks on food products have generally prevented children from ingesting radioactive material.

I made a Mistake;
Radioactive cesium not detectable in 99% of Fukushima residents: study
Levels of cesium-137 were shown to be below the detectable threshold of 300 becquerels per kilogram of body weight for 99 percent of the residents, according to the team.

For the remaining 1 percent, or 212 people, 10 becquerels were detected. Still, their annual internal exposure would total only 0.04 millisievert, far below the government-set limit of 1 millisievert per year, the team said.

Fukushima farmers to grow 1st rice since accident

Farmers in a town in Fukushima Prefecture, northeastern Japan, are preparing to plant their first rice since the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant 2 years ago.

An agricultural corporation in Hirono Town started planting rice early this week. Seeds planted on Monday already have 2-centimeter shoots.

Local farmers were unable to grow rice in the past 2 years because the town asked them not to because of concerns about radioactive contamination.

The town planted rice on an experimental basis last year and confirmed that its radiation levels were below the government limit.

On April 11th and 12th, workers at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station used an endoscopic camera to investigate the torus chamber in the Unit 2 reactor building.  On the second day, workers used a sediment collection device to sample water and sediment from the Torus Chamber.

Radiation levels jumped to 134 millisieverts per hour just above the surface of the water, and rust and corrosion was easily visible.  The ambient temperature in the Torus Chamber is around 68 degrees Fahrenheit (20 degrees Celsius) while the water temperature is around 77 degrees Fahrenheit (25 degrees Celsius).

From 1963 to 1971, 67 inmates in Oregon and 64 prisoners in Washington had their testicles targeted with X-rays to see what doses made them sterile.

At the Fernald State School, mentally retarded boys were fed radioactive iron and calcium but consent forms sent to parents didn’t mention radiation. Elsewhere psychiatric patients and infants were injected with radioactive iodine.

In a rare public condemnation, Clinton Administration Energy Sec. Hazel O’Leary confessed being aghast at the conduct of the scientists. She told Newsweek in 1994: “I said, ‘Who were these people and why did this happen?’ The only thing I could think of was Nazi Germany.” None of the victims were provided follow-on medical care.

That's just lovely.
Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy..

I knew about the testicle doom, first I've read about the pregnant women.

Some cold-hearted mofos..
Makes you wonder how they could sleep at night.

God and country, I suppose.

2 vessels carrying MOX fuel to leave France for Japan

Kansai Electric Power Co. said Friday two vessels carrying uranium-plutonium mixed-oxide fuel, known as MOX fuel, will leave a port in France shortly to deliver the fuel to its nuclear plant in Fukui Prefecture on the Sea of Japan coast.

The transportation of the MOX fuel from Port of Cherbourg in northwestern France will mark the first time that such a fuel has been shipped to Japan since the Fukushima nuclear crisis, which was triggered by the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

TEPCO yet to nail down cause of radioactive leaks at Fukushima plant

The operator of the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant said Friday it has failed to find out why radioactive water leaked from underground tanks during visual checks of an area suspected to have been the cause of the incidents.

Workers removed part of the soil covering one of the troubled tanks and checked an area where a leak detection pipe, installed close to the tank, pierces though a water-containment sheet. But they could not find any irregularities there, plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. said.

"We have no choice but to think that the leakage occurred at another place in the case of the No. 2 tank," TEPCO spokesman Masayuki Ono said at a press conference, while noting that junctions of water-containment sheets located around the tank could be seen as other suspicious areas.
