Level of radioactive tritium rising in port at Fukushima plant
[link to english.kyodonews.jp]

A sample collected Friday contained around 1,100 becquerels of tritium per liter, the highest level detected in seawater since the nuclear crisis at the plant commenced in March 2011.

Tritium without Iodine-131, hmmm?
Can't be made by Fission in the last Months (No Iodine detected)
maybe it is the last bit of the "Pre-quazi-Cold Shutdown Time"?

Or... maybe the iodine is not being reported.
Or.. maybe the fission is underground where it is not monitored..

The Ground is not a safe Environment where you can hide Iodine,
there must be Traces of it and this Traces would be visible in the

Sandoval Says No To Manhattan Project Waste
[link to www.knpr.org]


The federal government wants to bury old nuclear material from the Manhattan Project in Nevada, 40 feet below ground at the Nevada National Security Site. But Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval considers the material high-level radioactive waste that ought to be buried in New Mexico, 600 feet down, instead.

Terrorists could snag the material in transit and turn it into a "dirty bomb," according to Nevada officials. Low-level waste requires less transportation security than high-level waste.

What started off with activists being anti-nuclear weapon has morphed into irrational, anti-science stances against all energy - even reactors that simply cannot have a meltdown and use old nuclear waste for fuel. Who could protest against such a thing?

Well, when you have tens and hundreds of millions of dollars at stake, and a lot of that money is coming from aging hippies who bought into the Ralph Nader/Jane Fonda hysteria that nuclear power was causing a cancer epidemic and the Apocalypse, you have to play along.

Nuclear Waste: How a huge U.S. nonproliferation program became a major proliferation concern
[link to www.thevalleydispatch.com]


A multibillion-dollar U.S.-led effort to stem the threat of a terrorist nuclear blast is slowly unraveling because of huge cost overruns at a federal installation in South Carolina and stubborn resistance in Moscow to fulfilling the program's chief goal, according to U.S. officials and independent experts.

The 13-year old Energy Department program, authorized in agreements with Moscow spanning three presidents, is meant to transform excess plutonium taken from retired U.S. and Russian nuclear weapons into fuel for nuclear plants, so that it can't be stolen and misused.

But that ambitious goal has been blocked by a tangle of technical, diplomatic and financial problems. The Obama administration is now considering cancelling the project, an idea that has provoked furious opposition from some Republican lawmakers who say it is vital to U.S. national security.

In Our View: More Bad News at Hanford
[link to www.columbian.com]

snip


Gov. Jay Inslee said the latest potential leak "raises very troubling questions. … If we do not receive satisfaction (in meetings with federal officials in the next few weeks), we have several legal options available to us. And we'll act accordingly.

Ken Niles, the Oregon Department of Energy's nuclear safety division administrator, was quoted by The Associated Press on the subject of the Hanford cleanup: "These last few months just seem like one body blow after another. It's true this is not an immediate risk, but it's one more thing to deal with among many at Hanford."

Tony Carpenter, executive director of the Seattle-based advocacy group Hanford Challenge, sounded more alarmed: "This is really, really bad. They are going to pollute the ground and the groundwater with some of the nastiest stuff, and they don't have a solution for it."

Mike Geffree, who works for contractor Washington River Protection Solutions, spoke about radioactivity measurements in water samples: "Anything above a 500 count is considered contaminated and would have to be disposed of as nuclear waste." The count from the pit of the leaking tank, the AP reports, was 800,000.

We realize that, with the cost of the cleanup (more than $115 billion, but still climbing) surpassing the cost of three dozen Columbia River Crossings, the feds might be reluctant to pick up the pace. But with the Pacific Northwest at risk of further radioactive contamination, there is no excuse for further delays.

Radioactive waste operations halted at Oak Ridge facility after fire scare
[link to www.knoxnews.com]

snip


Based on the preliminary investigation, the problem apparently began Sunday afternoon when thunderstorms knocked out power at the facility — including the ventilation system, Wilkerson said.

“There was a heater connected to the ventilation system to control humidity in the facility, and the heater overheated,” Wilkerson said. That caused the insulation and the electrical connections to overheat and produce smoke, she said.

Room 327 is known as the “sludge condensate room,” and it was used several years ago — around 2004 — to process some of the liquid supernate taken from the waste tanks where transuranic sludges are stored.

There apparently are connections between that room and the system that is used for processing waste
, but Wilkerson said there were no radioactive materials stored there at the time of the incident.

The Transuranic Waste Processing Facility was constructed a decade ago to process some of Oak Ridge’s nastiest waste, including some of the highly radioactive materials generated during historic operations at ORNL’s nuclear reactors. WAI, a small business based in Ohio, was awarded the management contract in 2009. The plant employs about 250 workers.

A security manager's plan to tell a federal regulatory agency about his safety concerns at two South Jersey nuclear plants led to his firing, a Camden jury decided Friday. Employed by Wackenhut Corp., now G4S Secure Solutions, Robert Scull of Pittsgrove had been a security manager at the Salem and Hope Creek nuclear plants when, at age 49, he was fired in October 2009. "Nuclear safety is more important than any other kind of safety," said Scull's lawyer, Matthew S. Wolf of Cherry Hill. "It's important that people feel free to come forward with safety concerns." The jury in U.S. District Judge Renee Marie Bumb's Camden courtroom awarded Scull $400,000 in compensatory damages under New Jersey's whistle-blower law, the Conscientious Employee Protection Act, Wolf said.

SAVANNAH RIVER SITE, S.C. — Scattered among the pine forests of this 310-square mile federal reservation are five mothballed nuclear reactors where tens of thousands of workers were once engaged in a grim race to create as much plutonium as they could.

By the time production ended here in 1988, the site was a horrendous mess. Today, about 36 million gallons of radioactive liquid wastes sit in underground tanks, and most federal spending here is devoted to nuclear-related cleanup, not production.

Govt. approves more funds for TEPCO compensation

The Japanese government has approved additional assistance of more than 660 billion yen, or about 6.6 billion dollars, for compensation stemming from the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant disaster.

The plant's operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company, and the government-funded Nuclear Damage Liability Facilitation Fund asked the government to provide the additional funds. The utility's officials say the compensation costs are higher than expected as confirmation of the damage proceeds.

Industry minister Toshimitsu Motegi told TEPCO President Naomi Hirose on Tuesday that the government had approved the request.

Japan's nuclear safety upgrades mask industry problems

TOKYO — Japan’s nuclear utilities face shareholders this week promising restarts of idled plants as soon as next month after costly safety upgrades, plans that look wildly optimistic given they are yet to secure either regulatory or local approval.

A glaring example is the Hamaoka nuclear plant, once dubbed the world’s most dangerous for its location near a major earthquake fault zone. Operator Chubu Electric Power Co’s $1.5 billion upgrade is unlikely to convince opponents galvanised by ongoing problems from the Fukushima meltdown.

Chubu says it may apply to reboot reactors before March 2015, but others are much more ambitious as they try to cut back on imports of replacement fuels that have added billions to their costs, with firms saying they expect to restart seven reactors by the end of July.

Tokyo Electric Power Co, the operator of the Fukushima plant, and five other listed nuclear operators laid out the schedules to restart reactors in documents submitted to the government to support applications to raise residential electricity prices.

This is despite signs that Japan’s nuclear regulator will take a tough stance when its new safety guidelines take effect on July 8, and amid fierce local opposition.

“Out of Japan’s 50 nuclear reactors, I think Hamaoka is one of the least likely to stay open in the post-Fukushima context,” said Hajime Amano, a member of the local regional assembly where the plant is located.

Regulator urges reduction of tritium into sea

Japan's Nuclear Regulation Authority has urged Tokyo Electric Power Company to address a steep rise in levels of radioactive tritium in waters near the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

The authority says contaminated water is likely to be leaking from the site.

TEPCO had reported that water collected last Friday from a port near the plant contained 1,100 becquerels of tritium per liter. That's 10 times higher than the level logged during the year that ended in April.

TEPCO earlier found that levels of radioactive tritium and strontium were rising between late May and June in a well near the No. 2 reactor building.

Shareholders reject anti-nuclear power proposals

Nine Japanese utilities that own nuclear power plants held their shareholders' meetings on Wednesday. Groups opposed to nuclear power asked shareholders to reject atomic energy.

Executives from all the utilities said that suspending operations at their nuclear plants has had a major impact on their businesses. This is due to an increase in fuel costs for running thermal power plants.

Four of the 9 companies, including Shikoku Electric and Kansai Electric, are preparing to restart their 6 nuclear plants.

At the Tokyo Electric Power Company meeting, a group of about 450 shareholders who are opposed to nuclear energy submitted a list of 9 proposals.

But their proposals were rejected by a majority of shareholders. Similar proposals made at other utilities' meetings were also rejected.

Fukushima: Wrong radiation exposures given

Fukushima Prefecture says more than 16,000 residents were given wrong estimates of their external radiation exposure in a survey following the disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in 2011.

The figures were calculated by the National Institute of Radiological Sciences near Tokyo for all of Fukushima Prefecture's 2 million residents. The figures were calculated using a computer program, based on factors including the residents' activities in the 4 months after the accident.

Of the 2 million residents, calculations using the program have been completed for 420,000 people.

Bill to revise electricity business scrapped

Legislation designed to reform Japan's electricity supply system, failed to receive a vote in the Upper House on Wednesday, before the end of the Diet session.

The bill was designed to separate power generation and transmission sections of power companies. It aimed to change the current system following the 2011 earthquake. Tokyo Electric Power Company experienced rolling blackouts that inconvenienced industries and people's daily lives.

The new legislation would fully liberalize electricity retailing within three years, allowing both companies and private homes to freely choose power suppliers.

The bill also called for the separation of power generation and transmission businesses in about five to seven years time.
