Entergy replaces radiation monitors; state asks the NRC to investigate “spurious” radiation spikes at Vermont Yankee
[link to fairewinds.org]


Four times since mid-June, monitors have recorded “spurious spikes” in radiation levels inside the Vermont Yankee plant.

The “false positives” for high radiation levels were a result of faulty equipment that produced inaccurate results and did not indicate there were actual increases in radiation in the building that contains the spent fuel pool, according to Rob Williams, a spokesman for the plant.

Entergy notified the Nuclear Regulatory Commission of the equipment malfunction last week.

On Friday, the Vermont Department of Public Service sent a letter to NRC asking for a “full accounting” of the incidents. In addition, Darren Springer, deputy commissioner of the department, insisted the NRC require Entergy to report serious equipment “failures” immediately. The first spike occurred on June 14; the state was notified of the incidents on Thursday. Under NRC rules, Entergy has 60 days to file a report.

Chris Recchia, commissioner of the department, said the false positives are alarming because the radiation monitors are the fundamental warning system for the plant. The monitors, he said, must be perfectly calibrated so that the readings are accurate. “What happens if there was actually a radiation leak and the equipment didn’t register anything or didn’t register the proper amount?” he said.

Springer expressed this sentiment in the official letter to the NRC, which the agency is obliged to respond to. “Failure of the radiation monitoring equipment is a serious issue, and could have under other circumstances led to significant harm if the failed equipment had not detected a radiation release at the plant,” he wrote.

Safety screening urged for Niigata nuclear plant

Members of Japan's government-financed fund for nuclear damage liability facilitation have urged the operator of the damaged Fukushima nuclear power plant to apply for government safety screening soon to restart reactors at a plant in Niigata.

Restarting the 2 reactors at the Kashiwazaki-Kariha plant is seen as essential for Tokyo Electric Power Company, or TEPCO, to fulfill its promise to the government and financial institutions to move into the black in fiscal 2013.

New research body for reactor decommissioning

Public and private sector groups in Japan will jointly set up a new research organization to pursue ways to decommission the crippled reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

Industry minister Toshimitsu Motegi on Thursday handed a charter for the body to Kyoto University Professor Hajimu Yamana, who will head the International Research Institute for Nuclear Decommissioning.

Motegi said he hopes all related parties will join forces to achieve results in response to the high expectations of the residents of Fukushima Prefecture and other citizens.

Fukushima begins radiation level checks on children

The Fukushima prefectural government has started internal radiation level checks on children under 4 years old who were previously too small to undergo the checks with a standard whole body counter.

The equipment for measuring internal radiation levels is designed for people with the height of adults. Fukushima officials have now fitted the equipment with a 90-centimeter high chair to allow smaller children to be tested.

The checks, which started on Thursday, cover children who lived in 5 municipalities designated as evacuation zones following the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident in March 2011.

Fukushima evacuees allowed to stay home overnight

Residents of a zone evacuated after the Fukushima nuclear accident have been allowed to stay at their homes overnight for the first time since the disaster.

The government is allowing 120 households in the Miyakoji district of Tamura City to stay at their homes for 3 months from Thursday. The move is aimed at having them prepare to return home when the evacuation order is lifted. The residents are expected to clean their houses or do farm work.

Int'l experts deny fault at Tsuruga plant is active

A nuclear reactor at Japan Atomic Power Co.'s Tsuruga plant in western Japan does not sit above an active fault, contrary to the determination of nuclear regulators, foreign and domestic experts commissioned by the plant operator to study the issue said Thursday.

"There is clear evidence that...the faults (in question) at the Tsuruga nuclear power plant are not active," the experts, including Neil Chapman, a professor at the University of Sheffield in Britain, and Kelvin Berryman, a geologist at GNS Science of New Zealand, said in a summary of their findings.

Japan's Nuclear Regulation Authority concluded in May that a fault called D-1, which runs below the No. 2 reactor, could have moved in the last 120,000 to 130,000 years -- a timeline that determines whether faults are active in Japan.

Three-year delay in Lee licensing

A decision on Duke Energy's application to build the proposed William States Lee nuclear power plant could be delayed by three years, the US regulator has stated.

Duke submitted a combined construction and operation licence (COL) application with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) for the proposed Lee plant at the end of 2007. The application is based on two Westinghouse AP1000 pressurized water reactors with a combined capacity of 2234 MWe at a greenfield site in Cherokee County, South Carolina.

In October 2012, Duke informed the NRC that it planned to relocate the two units "in order to manage project construction risks." Both units will be relocated 66 feet (20 metres) south and unit 1 will be relocated 50 feet (15 metres) east. At that time Duke expected that, "The impacts of relocation on the Lee COL application will be minor and are expected to simplify COL application presentation and improve margins to associated acceptance criteria."

However, the NRC has now informed Duke that its decision to relocate the Lee units "will require rework and affect the staff's completion of the review."

Fukushima municipalities demand more cleaning

Municipalities around the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant have demanded that the central government continue decontamination work in the areas.

The mayors and assembly leaders of 8 municipalities around the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, Fukushima Prefecture, met Environment Minister Nobuteru Ishihara on Friday and handed him a letter of request.

Many residents of the towns and villages evacuated after the nuclear accident at the plant and still live away from their homes.

Their leaders demanded that the ministry continue removal of radioactive fallout until radiation levels meet the government's long-term goal of one millisievert or below per year.

Fukushima plant may have leaked huge amount of radioactive tritium

Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Friday that an estimated 20 trillion to 40 trillion becquerels of radioactive tritium may have flowed from the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant into the Pacific Ocean since May 2011.

The plant operator reported the estimate to the Nuclear Regulation Authority after recently admitting that toxic water, accumulating at the site since the nuclear crisis was triggered on March 11, 2011, is seeping into the sea.

TEPCO said the release is around the level allowed under safety regulations, which is 22 trillion becquerels annually, but acknowledged that it had not taken place in a controlled way.

Levy nuclear plant project shelved

Duke Energy has dropped plans to build two new reactors at the greenfield Levy site in Florida blaming regulatory uncertainty. It is the second time in recent months that Duke has shelved a nuclear project.

Having already spent about $1 billion in preparatory work, Duke has decided to terminate a contract for the construction of the new Levy power plant "as a result of delays by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) in issuing combined construction and operating licences for new nuclear plants, as well as increased uncertainty in cost recovery caused by recent legislative changes in Florida." The engineering, procurement and construction contract, worth up to $14 billion, had been contingent on receiving NRC approval for Levy by 1 January 2014.

This is the second plan for new nuclear that Duke has dropped in the last few months. Two AP1000 reactors were slated for Shearon Harris in North Carolina but an application for these was withdrawn in May due to slower-than-expected growth in energy demand. The company has also been told that the NRC will take an extra three years to process the application to build two new units at Lee.

DOE, advisory board differ on Hanford groundwater plan

The Hanford Advisory Board is concerned that more research should be done before a cleanup plan for uranium-contaminated groundwater becomes final.

A meeting is scheduled tonight in Richland by the Department of Energy and its regulators to discuss and hear comments on the proposed plan for the 300 Area, which is just north of Richland.

Process trenches used to dispose of contaminated liquid into the soil were removed in the 1990s, and levels of uranium in the groundwater dropped, said Mike Thompson, DOE hydrogeologist. Hanford officials assumed then that if uranium-contaminated soil was excavated down to about 15 feet -- which has been done -- the groundwater contamination gradually would dissipate.

But it later became clear that more lightly contaminated soil near the groundwater was continually recontaminating the water. As the river would rise and fall, the level of groundwater also would change, allowing the groundwater to periodically soak the contaminated soil.

Digging up all the contaminated soil is not an option, according to DOE. It would cost more than $1 billion and the soil would fill an area measuring 1,000 feet by 1,000 feet in the 70-foot-deep lined landfill in central Hanford.

The digging also could backfire and increase contamination in the groundwater, according to DOE. Water is used to control dust and prevent airborne contamination during excavation, but the water would filter through the soil and push more uranium into the groundwater.
