Roundup on some Nuclear Power Plants and Radiation Materials for April 2010

South Carolina would be happy to get foreign nuclear materials waste.

Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant radioactive Tritium leak (while TVA was restarting the reactor- April 8 2010)

More radioactivity found outside Vermont Yankee's nuclear plant - March 31 2010)

Test results have confirmed the presence of another, more dangerous, radioactive substance in the soil at Vermont's only nuclear power plant, officials said Tuesday, five days after announcing they had found and stopped tritium leaks at Vermont Yankee.

The state Health Department said Tuesday that cesium-137 was found at the site. The substance has a half-life of 30 years, about 2 1/2 times that of tritium, which was found in early January. A half-life is the time it can be expected to take for a substance to lose half its radioactivity. Unlike tritium, cesium-137 does not occur naturally in the environment; it is a product of nuclear fission.

Both radioactive substances can increase the chances of developing cancer depending on the intensity of exposure.

Uranium mining in North Carolina

When asked about the possibility that results could show detrimental effects on water, Coles said, “I don’t think that’ll happen.”

Katie Whitehead, chairman of the Dan River Basin Association’s Mining Task Force, said the study will “give us an idea of how storm water could transport typical uranium tailings contaminants downstream from Coles Hill in the heaviest rains. We will learn about the possible effects on water quality not just in Lake Gaston, but in the Banister River and Kerr Reservoir.”

How do you do cleanup of three stories worth of contaminated hot cells? Hanford.

The five hot cells being cleaned up are in the 324 Building in Hanford's 300 Area just north of Richland. They were built to allow Hanford employees to work with highly radioactive materials without being exposed to radiation.

Workers would stand outside the hot cells and use controls to operate manipulators inside the cells, watching what they were doing through leaded-glass windows....The building initially was used to examine fuel from Hanford's plutonium-production reactors and develop ways to chemically reprocess the fuel to remove plutonium for the nation's nuclear weapons program.Later the building was used to help develop disposal methods for high-level radioactive waste, including vitrification, or glassification, which now is the preferred method internationally for immobilizing high-level waste

Could nuclear fusion be created WITHOUT RADIOACTIVITY, using LASERS?

Schumer wants background checks on nuclear power plant employees after finding out a man with ties to Al -Quada worked at one.

Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant denied water permit due to its outmoded cooling technology

Are guards at nuclear power plants adequately trained?
