“Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution scrubs their Fukushima Cesium radiation contamination data. The test results from 2011 and 2012 seem to be gone, and some of their 2013-2014 data seems to be missing. Could it be tied to the arrest of anti-nuclear activist Dana Durnford?”

Indian Point Deteriorates – tritium, radioactive hydrogen, at 8 million picoCuries per liter!

11 02 2016

Beyond NuclearMum’s the word as radioactive leak at Indian Point gets worse

“Entergy’s Indian Point nuclear power plant at Buchanan, NY is leaking more radioactive tritium at higher concentrations into groundwater draining into the Hudson River. Failure of a sump pump needed for filtering radioactivity in contaminated water accumulated from a refueling outage is believed to be the cause of this latest spill picked up in three onsite monitoring wells next to Unit 2.

The depth, breadth and flow rate of the underground contaminated plume remains unknown. One monitoring well (MW-32), which is 57 feet deep, first tested positive for high levels of tritium, radioactive hydrogen, at 8 million picoCuries per liter (pCi/L). In a press release, Entergy “voluntarily” admitted that a more recent follow-up test for tritium has now increased by 80%(!!!). Beyond Nuclear badgered the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) for more transparency to find that tritium levels in three monitoring wells have soared. RadBottle Tritium concentrations  have risen in MW-30 from 1.5 million pCi/L to 2.7 million pCi/L, MW-31 from 38,100 pCi/L to 9.5 million pCi/L and MW-32 is now 14.8 million pCi/L. (!!!)

But “voluntary” compliance automatically ducks reliable reporting, federal regulations and enforcement action. . . . “  (more)

On the NRC’s Deceptive Event Reporting

11 02 2016

NRC Event Reports for 2016 OMIT the January near-critical accident at Oak Ridge nuke bomb factory.

Did you know nuke plants and nuke weapons and nuke “medicine” factories only report accidents if they feel like it? It is entirely VOLUNTARY.

We got a whiff of this stink-pot in the early news report (Feb. 6th) about the Indian Point (NY) contamination –

The Journal News
Entergy voluntarily notified the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, state agencies and stakeholders about the elevated levels of tritium in the monitoring wells . . . “
” . . . The US NRC relies completely upon an industry voluntary self-reporting initiative also known as the Groundwater Protection Initiative (GPI) coordinated through the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) .
Under GPI protocol, Entergy provided the State of New York with a “courtesy call” (!!!) and informed them of the tritium contamination in apparently[sic] two groundwater monitoring wells (MW-32 plus one other). NRC is handling this through the Region 1 Office of Public Affairs.”

atom2  NEI = Nuclear Energy[sic] Institute

NO NRC Event Report on Indian Point radiation leak when it happened.
oijaBdThen they chime in on Feb. 11 – five days after it made headlines around the word – with this nutty assessment :
“. . . groundwater tests at Indian Point that confirm   anticipated fluctuations   in tritium levels” (!!!)

Drip, Drip, Drip. . . Oak Ridge – Nuke Bomb Processing Accident

10 02 2016

Nuke safety issue briefly halted uranium operation

OAK RIDGE — Casting operations with bomb-grade uranium were shut down for a brief period last month at the Y-12 nuclear weapons plant because of a safety issue near the area where uranium emissions are vented. . . .

” . . . The activity report for the week of Jan. 8 said nuclear criticality safety engineers at Y-12 documented a safety issue after production workers reported about 2 feet of water had been found in the “discharge tube” below Stack 110’s dust collector.

Generally speaking, water and U-235 don’t mix well because water can facilitate an unwanted nuclear chain reaction — known as a criticality accident — if sufficient amounts of fissionable uranium are present and other conditions are favorable.

Nothing to see here, move along!

There is NO NRC Event Report for 2016 on this event. Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board website.  Their REPORT

Nuclear survivor: Bill Clark recalls 1958 criticality accident and his up-and-down life since then

” . . . Clark remembers the flashes of blue light in the C-1 Wing of Building 9212, an area of the plant where scraps of bomb-grade uranium were chemically processed for recovery. At first he thought the light show was a welding arc. But he quickly realized nobody was welding, and workers were starting to run. Sirens were sounding, and there was an awful, awful smell.”

ZIKA Skeeters GMO for US Bio-Warfare Insanity

10 02 2016

CDC-Oxford ‘Death Gene’ Is Key To The Brazilian Babies Riddle
By Yoichi Shimatsu

” . . . this essay explains how the recent cases of Brazilian microcephaly were not caused by ZIKA but are instead a “side effect” of the RIDL gene-transfer. The so-called Death Gene blockage, using the GATA binding protein, can affect the same gene in human embryos as in the targeted mosquito pupae. The OX513-A captive mosquito program releases protein-carrier male mosquitoes to mate with the wild local female mosquitoes. skullSkeeterThe lethal protein enters the eggs to disrupt embyonic growth, causing the offspring to self-destruct (auto-side) before they reach adulthood. However, these same mother mosquitoes can then transfer the dangerous protein into women, thereby seriously harming human embryonic development of the brain, nerves, heart and testicles. Damage to the GATA-1 protein in human embryos is associated with Down Syndrome, a brain disorder similar to Brazilian microcephaly. (While there are many other causes of microcephaly, the new Brazil type is extraordinarily severe.)”

” . . . Science skeptics and pro-GM stooges are probably asking by now: Is there any proof that CDC had access to gene-delivery mosquitoes as early as the ZIKA outbreak in Yap? Quit your yapping, kids, because CDC was already cooperating to breed more varieties of mosquitoes with Oxitex in 2006. Named after the Oxitec affiliate 360 Genomics, the OX3604C mosquitoes were loaded with the RIDL death gene.

By 2008, CDC researchers were conducting field trials of Oxitec-3604C in Chiapas, Mexico, the heartland of the Zapatista movement in the very same year that their militant commandantes were declaring support for the Palestinian struggle. Need we say more? “

Big Fault Line & Big Gas Pipeline & Indian Point Nuke Plant

9 02 2016

bluedevils

Because of the latest toxic leak at New York’s Indian Point nuke plant we decided to look for more information on the area fault lines and the loony plan by a giant gas company to run a new pipeline through the grounds of Indian Point facilities.

blue550

Indian Point is a Pressurized Water Reactor – info

The Indian Point info site has Units 2 & 3 listed.

IndianPointinfoWhat about out-of-service Unit 1?

OOPSIE!
Unit 1 is crazy aunt in the attic –

It only worked for 26 months….
“IP-1 operated commercially from August 1962 until October 31, 1974. The plant was shutdown because the emergency core cooling system did not meet regulatory requirements. By January 1976, all spent fuel was removed from the reactor vessel.”

3.0 Major Technical or Regulatory Issues
Low levels of groundwater contamination have been identified as originating at IP-1. The primary radionuclides involved are Sr-90 and tritium, and appear to be leaking from the spent fuel building. Entergy has moved IP-1 spent fuel to dry storage, has drained and cleaned the IP-1 spent fuel pool, and will continue long-term monitoring and reporting of site groundwater.

2008 – NRC doc on dry fuel storage at Indian Point

Riverkeeper – (2013) Timeline of Indian Point LEAKS

Indian Point has to put the old fuel rods in dry cask storage outdoors because they built the building for them too small for the crane to move them(!!).

This 2006 Idaho Nat’l Lab doc mentions Indian Point’s SFP leaking (page 2).

Riverkeeper: Radioactive Waste and Pollution
“Government regulations allow radioactive water to be released from Indian Point nuclear power plant to the environment containing “permissible” levels of contamination. However, since there is no safe threshold to exposure to radiation, permissible does not mean safe.”

Highly Contaminated Water Leaking at Indian Point

7 02 2016

Governor Cuomo issues statement about contaminated water leaking at Indian Point

The levels ofwhiteRADblackRED radioactivity reported this week are significantly higher than in past incidents. Three of forty monitoring wells registered alarming increases. In fact, one of the monitoring well increased nearly 65,000 percent from 12,300 picocuries per liter to over 8,000,000 picocuries per liter.”

Gun_rtMining Awareness Nuclear Terrorism: 296,000 Radioactive Shots Per SECOND (Bq) per Liter of Water (34 oz) Near Entergy’s Indian Pt. Nuclear Power Station; Compare to M134 Gun at 100 Rounds Per Second

” . . . How long would an individual get by with shooting a gun of any sort at people in public? And, yet the nuclear industry-utilities get by with it all of the time. They are allowed by law to legally leak long-lived lethal radioactive materials into the environment on a routine basis throughout the entire nuclear fuel chain.”

(Jan. 14) Pipeline’s proximity to Indian Point raises concerns

” . . . in March, Spectra Energy received approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to construct a massive new gas pipeline, the Algonquin Incremental Market, or AIM, crossing 2,159 feet of Entergy property at the aging Indian Point nuclear power plant in Westchester County.”

We’re sure Ramapo Fault at the nuke plant won’t get woken up.

Radioactive water leak may indicate that Indian Point nuclear facility is poorly managed … ya think?

NEW JERSEY DOESN’T WANT TO BE LEFT BEHIND!

N.J. nuclear plant shut down because of generator problem

“… an automatic safeguard system detected an electrical problem in the plant’s main generator and caused the shutdown of the plant’s turbine.
The turbine turns the generator which produces electricity.
The stopping of the turbine caused the nuclear reactor to automatically trip off-line.
