US: Nebraska nuclear plant fire was serious threat
US nuclear regulators say a fire that knocked out the cooling system for spent fuel at a nuclear plant in Nebraska last year represented a serious safety threat.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission issued a preliminary report on Monday into the fire at the Fort Calhoun plant last June.

The report says the plant operator could have prevented the fire if it had investigated an unusual smell coming from an electric breaker 3 days earlier.

Cesium testing in food up for review
Japan's health ministry is reviewing guidelines for food inspections ahead of the April introduction of tougher content limits on radioactive cesium.

The new safety standard will limit the amount of cesium in rice, vegetables and other general foodstuffs to 100 becquerels per kilogram --- or one-fifth the current limit.

Team: Radiation exposure in Tokyo far below limit
Researchers say Tokyo residents' internal radiation exposure from the nuclear accident in Fukushima is far below government-set safety limits, so the risk to human health is extremely limited.

A team led by University of Tokyo researcher Michio Murakami estimated the amount of radioactive materials people in Tokyo have ingested through drinking water and food since March last year. The team used data compiled by local and central governments.

S.Korean nuclear plant lost power for 12 minutes
A South Korean nuclear regulator says a reactor at a nuclear power plant in the country had no electricity for 12 minutes last month.

The Nuclear Safety and Security Commission said on Tuesday that the accident took place at the number one reactor at the Kori plant in Busan.

The institute said electricity was lost for 12 minutes from shortly after eight thirty PM on February 9th when the plant was undergoing a regular inspection.

Verification of Ohi plant stress tests to be made
Japan's Nuclear Safety Commission will soon release, for the first time, its verification of the results of stress tests for nuclear reactors.

The government says the stress tests are prerequisites for resuming commercial operations. The government is saying that it will judge whether to resume operation of the nuclear reactors based on the results of commission's examinations.

The commission has been examining the test results on the No.3 and 4 reactors at the Ohi plant in Fukui Prefecture, currently halted for regular inspections.

Firefighters hold drill for no-entry zone
Firefighters in Fukushima have held a drill to prepare for fires in the no-entry zone around the crippled nuclear power plant.

The drill was held on Tuesday in Naraha Town, on the zone's border.

Fires in the zone are considered liable to spread out of control, as the local fire department is now based outside the area.

In the exercise, firefighters wearing protective suits and masks sprayed water while checking for radiation.

IAEA concerned about aging nuclear plants
The International Atomic Energy Agency says it's concerned about the safety of the world's nuclear power plants as 80 percent are more than 20 years old.

The UN nuclear watchdog sent a draft of its annual report to member countries. The final report will be made public at its general assembly in September.

The draft says 80 percent of the 435 facilities in operation were more than 2 decades old at the end of last year.

Forty-three percent are between 20 and 29 years old. Thirty-two percent are 30 to 39 years old, and 5 percent are older than 40 years.

Radiation high near suppression chambers
High levels of radiation have been detected near suppression chambers of 2 of the reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

The radiation levels are too high for workers to continue inspections.

Decommissioning the plant's crippled reactors involves filling the reactors and their containment vessels with water and extracting melted fuel.

To do this, workers must pinpoint and repair damage to the containment vessels and the suppression chambers.

At the No.2 reactor building, workers opened the door to the suppression chamber and detected a maximum radiation of 160 millisieverts per hour.

Officials from 23 local authorities travelled to the tsunami-devastated town of Onagawa in Miyagi Prefecture for Thursday's briefing.

Tokyo was the first local government outside the disaster zone to accept some of the estimated 22.5 million tons of debris left behind. Only 6.7 percent of the total has been disposed of so far, partly due to concerns about radiation.

The disaster created more than 220 million tons of rubble in the 3 worst-hit prefectures of Iwate, Miyagi and Fukushima alone. Only around 7 percent of it has been incinerated or buried.

Some local authorities are asking the central government to act more assertively to address residents' concerns over contamination from the Fukushima nuclear accident.

Holes in radiation decontamination law leave some Fukushima residents in doubt

Snip

The Ministry of the Environment has drawn up guidelines based on the new law on special measures for the handling of radioactive contamination, but these guidelines do not take indoor decontamination into account. The reason for this, a ministry representative explains, is because the special measures law was drafted with "environmental" contamination in mind.

However, one worker in the prefecture who has been involved in the decontamination of public facilities says that a considerable amount of indoor decontamination work needs to be done. He says that when readings are taken on top of lockers, near carpets and in other places where it is easy for dust to gather, tens of thousands of counts per minute (cpm) are sometimes measured. This is far above the government standard for decontaminating humans or objects, which stands at 13,000 counts per minute (a dosage of about 0.1 microsieverts per hour).

"Any places connected with the air outside, such as ventilators or the cracks between windows will contain radioactive materials, without fail," the worker says. "If these materials are left there, it could result in internal radiation exposure. Indoor decontamination should be made compulsory."
