Old news related to Indian Point NPP...

"Buchanan, New York (CNN) -- Stepping into the containment dome of Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant No. 3 is almost surreal. It's like entering a movie set, but instead of walking by wooden props, we're passing through an 11-foot-thick concrete-and-steel wall.

This is the nuclear facility that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo wants to shut down, the long-time target of both anti-nuclear and environmental activists, the nuclear power plant that sits only some 25 miles from New York City.

"We haven't found the exact location of the leak to be able to do the repair and stop it," said Pollock. "We're working with a couple of firms. Right now there's a technique being used in Germany that we're trying to see if it would work here and we're going through that evaluation right now.""

 Quoting: Citizenperth


[snip]

The main way in which the “radiation protection industry” has succeeded in hugely underrating the ill-health caused by nuclear power is by insisting on a group of extremely restrictive definitions as to what qualifies as a radiation-caused illness statistic. For example, under IAEA’s criteria:

> If a radiation-caused cancer is not fatal, it is not counted in the IAEA’s figures

> If a cancer is initiated by another carcenogen, but accelerated or promoted by exposure to radiation, it is not counted.

> If an auto-immune disease or any non-cancer is caused by radiation, it is not counted.

> Radiation-damaged embryos or foetuses which result in miscarriage or stillbirth do not count

> A congenitally blind, deaf or malformed child whose illnesses are are radiation-related are not included in the figures because this is not genetic damage, but rather is teratogenic, and will not be passed on later to the child’s offspring.

> Causing the genetic predisposition to breast cancer or heart disease does not count since it is not a “serious genetic disease” in the Mendelian sense.

> Even if radiation causes a fatal cancer or serious genetic disease in a live born infant, it is discounted if the estimated radiation dose is below 100 mSv [mSv= millisievert, a measurement of radiation exposure. One hundred millsievert is the equivalent in radiation of about 100 X-Rays].

> Even if radiation causes a lung cancer, it does not count if the person smokes — in fact whenever there is a possibility of another cause, radiation cannot be blamed.

> If all else fails, it is possible to claim that radiation below some designated dose does not cause cancer, and then average over the whole body the radiation dose which has actually been received by one part of the body or even organ, as for instance when radio-iodine concentrates in the thyroid. This arbitrary dilution of the dose will ensure that the 100 mSv cut-off point is nowhere near reached. It is a technique used to dismiss the sickness of Gulf War veterans who inhaled small particles of ceramic uranium which stayed in their lungs for more than two years, and in their bodies for more than eight years, irradiating and damaging cells in a particular part of the body.

Tohoku summer festivals opens in Fukushima City

Thousands of people are in Fukushima City in northeastern Japan for a 2-day event combining 6 local summer festivals.

The event was first held 2 years ago to promote tourism in areas hard hit by the March 2011 disaster.

A resident said she is happy as this is the first time so many people have gathered in Fukushima City since the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami as well as the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. She expressed hope for a quick recovery of her hometown.

The organizers of the event expect as many as 200,000 people will attend.

Large anti-nuclear rally held near Diet building

An anti-nuclear power rally Sunday near the Diet building in Tokyo drew 60,000 people, according to the three groups that organized the event, including one led by Nobel literature laureate Kenzaburo Oe.

The Metropolitan Police Department, which provided security for the event, said the number of participants was between 20,000 and 30,000.

The protesters marched to the Diet building after holding anti-nuclear rallies at a park in central Tokyo and a site near the Diet building earlier in the day.

Minister orders review of rule for easier dismantling of nuke plants

Japan's industry minister Toshimitsu Motegi said Sunday he has instructed his ministry to review an accounting rule for electricity companies in order to make the decommissioning of nuclear power plants less financially onerous for their operators.

Motegi told reporters in Yokohama that he has given the instruction to "consider an organization and schedule so that a review of the rule can be started at an early date."

Under the current rule, utilities are required to build reserves for decommissioning over a period of 40 years on the assumption that nuclear plants will be used for 40 years or longer.

TVA eyes building 2 smaller reactors on the Clinch River in Oak Ridge
[link to timesfreepress.com]

[snip]

The Tennessee Valley Authority is working with two of the world's biggest nuclear contractors -- Babcock & Wilcox and Bechtel Corp. -- to test a pilot small modular reactor known as mPower.

TVA has yet to decide if it will ultimately build the new type of reactor. But aided by up to $150 million of funding support from the federal government, TVA and its partners have agreed to be the first to test the mPower design and to submit plans for regulatory approval by next year to build a pair of the new reactors on the Clinch River in Oak Ridge.

A Little Radiation May be A Big Deal
[link to www.theintelligencer.net]

[snip]

WHEELING - The natural gas wastewater that GreenHunter Water plans to recycle in Warwood can contain trace amounts of radioactive radium and radon, according to the federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission.



Officials with both the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection said their agencies do not consider the radioactive materials found in drilling waste to be dangerous.

"The waste material from the fracking production process, referred to as brine, can contain non-Atomic Energy Act radioactive materials such as radon and diffuse forms of radium," said NRC spokesman Neil Sheehan, noting his organization does not regulate such radiation.

"If you're asking if the DEP Office of Oil and Gas has specific rules relating to radioactivity at well sites, the answer is no," added West Virginia DEP spokesman Thomas Aluise.

Nuclear site scrap metal could be headed to recyclers
[link to www.post-gazette.com]
[link to www.post-gazette.com]

[snip]

"This involves risk. Radiation causes cancer," said Daniel Hirsch, president of the Committee to Bridge the Gap. "The U.S. population should not be used as a disposal facility."

Mr. Hirsch -- whose nonprofit examines nuclear safety, waste disposal and related issues -- said rescinding the scrap recycling moratorium that has been in place since 2000 demonstrates the Energy Department's "callous disregard for the public."

Despite radiation detectors at scrap yards and metals plants, there have been cases of radioactive metals making it into mills as well as onto store shelves.

Last year, Bed, Bath and Beyond pulled metal tissue boxes out of about 200 stores after it was discovered that the household items emitted low levels of radiation. Although the Nuclear Regulatory Commission determined the tissue holders did not pose a health threat, the retailer said it pulled them off the shelf "out of an abundance of caution."

"We're not going to take anything that goes above background radiation levels," he said. "It's the end of the story at that point."

Mr. Wittenborn questions the DOE's estimate that about 14,000 metric tons of scrap would be recycled. He said estimates based on 2007 inventories at sites managed by DOE and the NRC indicate there may be as much as 1 million tons of the scrap.

Skullduggery alleged over mayors' 'secret' nuclear-waste storage meetings
[link to www.leaderpost.com]

[snip]

Recent documents show the eight county mayors met 16 times with the Nuclear Waste Management Organization and Ontario Power Generation between 2005 and 2012 to discuss a proposed underground facility for low and mid-level waste.

Informal notes were kept for only eight of the meetings held between 2009 and 2012.

In early 2009, discussions also turned to finding a willing host community for high-level radioactive waste.

Notes of an Ottawa meeting in February 2010 show then Brockton mayor Charlie Bagnato "felt it would be difficult for municipal politicians to embrace a spring date for the siting process during an election year because of the fear of a negative backlash at the polls."

The mayors also "favoured a soft or low-key launch" of the search process, according to the Ontario Power Generation notes.

The waste authority launched its search nationally in May 2010, but Cheryl Grace, with the two activist groups, said county residents were kept in the dark.

"The first time Bruce County residents heard anything about a Bruce County municipality actually being involved in any of this in a tangible way was October 2011," Grace said from Southampton.

Life and Death Choices: Radiation, children, and Japan’s future
[link to japanfocus.org]

[snip]

Three days after meltdown began at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant on 11 March, 2011, Fujimoto moved his two daughters, then aged four and three, to safety hundreds of kilometers away. In December, 2012 the eldest of the two was diagnosed with adenoidal cysts, the prelude to a type of cancer that often strikes the salivary glands. “I was told by the doctor that it’s very rare,” he says.

Although Mr Fujimoto and his family were in Chiba Prefecture, over 100km (60 miles) from the nuclear plant and in the opposite direction from the worst of the fallout, he believes his daughter inhaled enough radiation to cause her illness. “I’m convinced this is because of the Fukushima accident.”


In the absence of a consensus on the likely impact of the Fukushima accident, the debate has hardened into two sides: people like Fujimoto an Iwata who say the authorities are playing down or even covering up the disaster, and the increasingly vocal official view that their worries are overblown. Those who stray too far from the official line risk being accused of fear-mongering.

That criticism misses the point, says Mochizuki Iori, author of the blog Fukushima Diary. “I was exposed in the first week,” he writes. “It’s irreversible. Not so many people can share this feeling in the world. I check my thyroid, lymph and symptoms of other things that I don’t even want to mention.”

Doctors say children’s thyroids, which help regulate the body’s metabolism, are especially sensitive to radioactive iodine. The gland is very active during childhood development. A study published last year in the International Journal of Cancer found elevated risks of thyroid cancer in childhood survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, 50 years after they were exposed to radiation. The study found over a third of 191 thyroid cancers in adults who were children at the time of the bombing were probably due to exposure. <link>

Whatever the scientists say, Mr. Fujimoto insists he won’t be persuaded by government reassurances that it is safe to return to Fukushima. “There is so much information not getting out at the moment. It will be too late for my children when it is eventually released.

Monju's data transmitting system fails

A technical glitch prevented data from the Monju fast-breeder nuclear reactor in Fukui, central Japan, from being sent to the government's monitoring system for more than 4 hours on Monday.

Technicians became aware of the problem early in the morning when an alarm sounded indicating that real-time data including the reactor's condition and radiation levels in the surrounding area were not being transmitted.

The plant operator, the Japan Atomic Energy Agency, found the device's computer server was turned off.

It says workers switched the server back on, and that the device restarted transmitting data about 4 and a half hours after it shut down.

It says 5 nuclear powers belonging NPT and 3 others --- India, Pakistan and Israel possessed approximately 17,200 nuclear warheads as of January this year. That's 10 percent less than a year earlier.

The institute says China has 250 nuclear warheads now, 10 more than last year.

Residents win radiation uncertainty compensation

A group of nuclear accident evacuees in Fukushima has won a compensation settlement decision from a state-backed legal arbitration body for radiation exposure and future health uncertainties.

The Nuclear Damage Claim Dispute Resolution Center decided to recommend that Tokyo Electric Power Company pay damages to about 180 former residents of the Nagadoro District in Iitate Village.

Nagadoro is near the Fukushima nuclear plant where radiation levels remain high. It is the only district in Iitate that the government declared uninhabitable over the long term.

It was decided that TEPCO should pay about 10,000 dollars each to pregnant women and to those who are 18 years old or younger. The other residents would receive 5,000 dollars each.

The residents had already received compensation for having to evacuate, but the amount did not cover health anxieties.

Radioactive water spills leave Fukushima fishermen floundering

HISANOHAMA — Dozens of crabs, three small sharks and scores of fish thump on the slippery deck of the fishing boat True Prosperity as captain Shohei Yaoita lands his latest haul, another catch headed not for the dinner table but for radioactive testing.

Japan’s government banned commercial fishing in this area after a devastating 2011 tsunami and the reactor meltdowns and explosions that followed at the nearby Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

The walls of a once-bustling fish market that sold Yaoita’s catch of flounder, rockfish, greenling and other sealife in the port of Hisanohama, about 20 kilometers south of the ruined plant, remain in ruins.

The fishermen of Hisanohama, forced out of work by the disaster, have had no choice but to take the only job available - checking contamination levels in fish just offshore from the destroyed nuclear reactor buildings.

“We used to be so proud of our fish. They were famous across Japan and we made a decent living out of them,” said 80-year-old Yaoita, who survived the tsunami by taking on the waves and sailing the six-person True Prosperity out to sea.

“Now the only thing for us is sampling.”

TEPCO finds groundwater contaminated with radioactive cesium

Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Monday that it has detected radioactive cesium in groundwater samples taken from the premises of the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex, reversing an earlier announcement that any contamination was negligible.

The announcement came as TEPCO is trying to secure the understanding of local fishermen over the dumping in the Pacific Ocean of groundwater that has been pumped out from wells at the site, saying it has confirmed that concentrations of radioactive substances are sufficiently low.

TEPCO had said radioactive cesium in the groundwater was at a level that could not be detected by an instrument at the Fukushima Daiichi complex. But the same sample was found to contain 0.22 becquerel of cesium-134 and 0.39 becquerel of cesium-137 per liter when checked at the Fukushima Daini plant, where radiation levels are lower.

Hopgood’s resolution sketched out the parameters of the issue.

“Ontario Power Generation is proposing to construct an underground, long-term burial facility for all of Ontario’s low- and intermediate-level radioactive waste at the Bruce Nuclear Generating Station, some of which is long-lived intermediate waste,” read the resolution. “This site (is) less than a mile inland from the shore of Lake Huron and about 440 yards below the lake level.

“Ontario Power Generation is proposing to construct an underground, long-term burial facility for all of Ontario’s low- and intermediate-level radioactive waste at the Bruce Nuclear Generating Station, some of which is long-lived intermediate waste,” read the resolution. “This site (is) less than a mile inland from the shore of Lake Huron and about 440 yards below the lake level.

From the article:
“There is no permanent solution,” she said, “There’s absolutely no permanent solution. It is looking less and less likely that San Onofre will ever restart. “


From me: this is the problem with nuclear power, permanent solutions to any problems.

No permanent solutions and the temporary solutions suck.

Yes the whole thing sucks. If they had to account for all the operational contigencies nuclear power would be the most expensive available. How do they get liability insurance?! Our little company pays $1900 per month - it really should be a cost that is factored in.
