Nuclear power plants need improved groundwater monitoring

[link to www.powergenworldwide.com]

U.S. nuclear power plants and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) need to improve how groundwater leaks are monitored and reported to the public, the Government Accountability Office concluded in a new analysis.

Experts in the GAO’s public health discussion group said that more information could enhance identifying leaks and characterizing their impacts. They also said the leaks have not affected the environment outside of the plant but that they could affect plant decommissioning, including additional remediation to meet NRC regulations for unrestricted release of the site.

The findings were made public in the report “Oversight of Underground Piping Systems Commensurate with Risk, but Proactive Measures Could Help Address Future Leaks,” released by the GAO June 21.
