TV: Groundwater shows massive spike in radioactive material at Fukushima plant — Strontium-90 up over 10,000% in past few months — Tepco apologizes

Xinhua: Very high radioactivity levels were detected in groundwater from an observation well at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, said the plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) Wednesday. [...] The observation well was set up on the Pacific side of the plant’s No. 2 reactor turbine building last December to find out the reasons why radioactivity levels in seawater near the plant remained high. The company said the sampled water could be from the contaminated water that seeped into the ground.

Reuters: Testing of groundwater showed the reading for strontium-90 increased from 8.6 becquerels to 1,000 becquerels per litre between Dec. 8, 2012 and May 24

BBC News: High levels of a toxic radioactive isotope have been found in groundwater at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant, its operator says. [...] Strontium-90 is formed as a by-product of nuclear fission. Tests showed that levels of strontium in groundwater at the Fukushima plant had increased 100-fold since the end of last year, Toshihiko Fukuda, a Tepco official, told media.

NHK: Tokyo Electric has again drawn criticism for a delay in revealing the latest incident. Workers took a sample of the groundwater on May 24th. [...] They apologized for the delay.

NHK: [Fukushima] prefecture summoned the utility’s managing director, Akio Komori, to the prefectural government office on Wednesday. Komori apologized for the trouble

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.

Fired nuclear-plant worker wins whistle-blower lawsuit
[link to www.philly.com]

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.

It's a BIG one... will it work?... to quote Bob Dylan: "The answer is blowing in the wind"

Offshore wind turbine shown to media

Journalists have been shown a huge wind turbine that will be the center of a power generation experiment off Fukushima Prefecture.

The turbine, unveiled at a city near Tokyo, is one of Japan's largest at 122 meters tall and 80 meters wide. It has an output of 2,000 kilowatts.

The experiment is due to begin in October this year in the sea about 20 kilometers off Fukushima Prefecture.

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.
