Worse than Fukushima? Radiation spike 65,000% at NY nuclear plant

Buchanan – A radioactive flow from the Indian Point nuclear power plant is leaking into groundwater that leads to the Hudson River, raising the possibility that the U.S. may have its very own Fukushima-like disaster only 25 miles from New York City.

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.”

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” (!!!)
