Lone,

I tried. It just told me that computers are only as good as the programmer.

Kind of difficult to argue with that.

Surely the types that are a risk, or there would be no point in monitoring. Also while they are on the ground, so are we. So are we.

It doesn't really matter if the detectors are not all reading exactly the same. Suppose you and I each have a thermometer outside our homes to measure temperature. You tell me that it is 20 C today, I find mine also reads 20 C.
This doesn't mean that the temperature is the same . Unless we have calibrated both thermometers against the same standard.

But if my thermometer shows an increase of three degrees the next day, and so does yours, we an be fairly sure that we are both experiencing the same increase.

Likewise the radiation counters are to be treated as relative. It is the changes that matters.

I've read the caveats and can only suggest that some day there is a person who goes around all the sites with a standard radiation source of the correct type and logs all the reorder differences against it. If published this would allow us to adjust for error.

It's all very interesting. And I wish there were more in the UK. I'll have a look at that other site later.

It should be possible to do a fairly simple monitoring of the local situation by checking the rain water. I don't know what equipment would be needed, but it probably won't be too expensive. Maybe I'll look into that.

We had problems over here when the Russia (Chernobyl) reactor blew up. The cloud of contamination passed over us and made some Welsh lamb uneatable for years. radioactive grass.

Hal, thank you. You brought up some good points for me to ponder on.

Although this was a tragic event, it could have been much worse. There were heroes involved throughout this ordeal. One of the badly damaged reactors contained Mox fuel. I haven't heard whether or not they have finished removing those rods.
There are still containment issues also which is of concern.

Removal of spent fuel at Fukushima nuclear plant may be delayed

TOKYO, June 10, Kyodo


The government and Tokyo Electric Power Co. are planning to push back the start of removing fuel rods from spent fuel pools at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex by two to three years from a current schedule, government sources said Tuesday.


Under an envisioned revised road map for decommissioning the Nos. 1 to 4 reactors at the plant ravaged by the March 2011 massive earthquake and tsunami, work to begin removing the spent fuel from the No. 3 pool is expected to be delayed until fiscal 2017 from the first half of fiscal 2015, the sources said.


Removal work for the Nos. 1 and 2 pools, originally planned for fiscal 2017, is now expected to start in fiscal 2020

Many events (U.S. and abroad) concerning radiological incidences have been mentioned on this site. I do not normally post the majority of them since this thread is mainly about Fukushima. I'll slip this one in Z (hope you don't mind. smiley

RSOE EDIS

Environment Pollution in USA on Friday, 19 June, 2015 at 02:53 (02:53 AM) UTC.

Description
Radioactive material was detected in a monitoring well in April at an Exelon-owned nuclear power plant in Pennsylvania about 40 miles from Baltimore, according to nuclear regulators. Exelon, the parent company of Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. and the largest owner of nuclear power plants in the United States, notified the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission that it found dangerous levels of tritium, a radioactive isotope of hydrogen, in a monitoring well at Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station on the Susquehanna River in Delta, Pa. The agency said the contamination posed no danger. "I would say there's no cause for concern for people who work at the plant or members of the public," said Neil Sheehan, a spokesman for the NRC. "It's not used by members of the public. We're talking about low levels" of contamination. Exelon found tritium at 37,700 picocuries per liter, higher than the 20,000 picocuries per liter drinking water limit set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Sheehan said regulators will examine ways to mitigate the contamination in a forthcoming inspection. It may be a concern in the future if the tritium ends up leaching into the Susquehanna, he said. Krista M. Connelly, a spokeswoman for the Peach Bottom power plant, said the plant has been monitoring the issue closely. "The affected groundwater is monitored, has not affected drinking water or the river, and results of more recent tests have shown tritium levels have returned to previous values," she said. "The groundwater stations or wells are specifically designed to allow for early detection and prompt mitigation." An advocacy group, Beyond Nuclear, criticized the NRC for its oversight of the leak, saying regulators have been monitoring and mitigating such leaks in a lax manner. The issue was highlighted in a report issued Thursday by the group called "Leak First, Fix Later: Uncontrolled and Unmonitored Radioactive Releases from Nuclear Power Plants."

One more for now Z. This from 2010.



Nuclear Regulatory Commission Ignores Its Own Regulations on Radioactive Leaks; Reactors Leaking for Decades Volunteer to Take Years More before Corrective Action


TAKOMA PARK, Md., April 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A new report released today by Beyond Nuclear – Leak First, Fix Later: Uncontrolled and Unmonitored Releases from Nuclear Power Plants – finds that the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is ignoring its oversight and enforcement responsibilities at the nation's increasingly leaky, uninspected and unmaintained nuclear power plants. The report shows that despite agency efforts initiated in 1979 to prevent uncontrolled radioactive releases to groundwater, the NRC is capitulating to an industry decision to take almost three more years before announcing an action plan. One reactor operator has committed to complete proactive corrective actions by the end of 2010 to prevent recurring radioactive leaks, raising concern over why the rest of the industry needs so much more time.

"The NRC has relinquished its oversight of leaking reactors to an industry where profits have been more important than public health," said report author, Paul Gunter, director of the Reactor Oversight Project for Beyond Nuclear, a national organization based in Takoma Park, Maryland. "Instead of enforcing its regulations to prevent leaks, NRC is entrusting the nuclear industry with 'voluntarily' corrective actions that won't be announced for years to come."

The report found that tritium, a radioactive form of hydrogen, along with other radioactive isotopes, have been leaking for decades from U.S. reactors without preventive actions taken by industry or enforced by NRC. Tritium leaking from U.S. reactors has entered ground- and surface water threatening drinking water sources. Tritium is a known carcinogen that can also cause genetic damage and birth defects and presents a biological hazard for up to 120 years. The protective standard for tritium in drinking water varies widely from the EPA standard at 20,000 picocuries per liter to the State of California's more protective goal of 400 picocuries per liter.

"New water is not created, it is recycled," said Gunter. "Today's groundwater is tomorrow's drinking water."

The report was released one day before an NRC "workshop on groundwater at nuclear power plants" scheduled for 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. at NRC headquarters in Rockville, MD and one week before an April 26 National Academy of Sciences public meeting that will provide details on a proposed new NRC-authorized cancer study around U.S. nuclear plants.

There have been 15 radioactive events involving leaks of tritium and other isotopes into groundwater from 13 different reactor sites since March 2009 alone. At least 102 reactor units are now documented to have leaked radioactivity into ground- and surface water from 1963 through February, 2009 with many reactor sites experiencing numerous and recurring uncontrolled releases.

"Leak First, Fix Later" points out that all nuclear power plants are required under NRC licenses to control and monitor the radioactive effluent including tritium that flows through the miles long tangle of buried pipe systems under each reactor site, and in some instances, through easements under public property. These buried pipes are largely inaccessible, uninspectable, deteriorating and increasingly leaking their radioactive contents – sometimes in the millions of gallons of uncontrolled radioactive releases – into ground- and surface water resources. The report highlights a series of several highly publicized radioactive leaks to groundwater in Illinois, New Jersey, Michigan, New York and Vermont.

"The NRC licensing agreements require reactor operators to control and monitor the radioactive water flowing in this spaghetti bowl of pipes buried under every nuclear power plant," said Gunter. "The problem is that NRC has lost control of its oversight and enforcement just as the industry has lost control of the radioactive leaks springing from miles of aging pipes," he said. "More disturbing, the agency is extending these reactor licenses by 20 years absent a management plan for this growing epidemic of radioactive leaks," he said.

Gunter referred to NRC design control requirements outlined in General Design Criteria 60 and 64 of the Code of Federal Regulation, Title 10, Chapter 50, Appendix A which state operators shall control and monitor the radioactive effluent in reactor systems as a part of their license conditions.

"The industry admits that they are not legally authorized to dump what basically constitutes their radioactive waste into groundwater and eventually people's backyards and drinking water," Gunter documents in the report.

Gunter points to the fact that the Chicago-based nuclear giant Exelon Nuclear has been providing bottled drinking water for the past four years to the community of Godley, Illinois, which neighbors the Braidwood nuclear power plant. Exelon took this action as a result of dozens of pipe leaks that spilled more than six million gallons of radioactive water contaminated with tritium that flowed off power plant site and soaked into groundwater along a four-and-a-half mile long buried pipe line.

"The NRC needs to take back its authority and prioritize the prevention of these radioactive leaks," said Gunter. "Right now, the NRC has acquiesced to industry's 'leak first, fix later' piecemeal approach that replaces sections of corroded pipe as they leak rather than replacing whole inaccessible systems," he said.

"The first and most immediate step is that NRC needs to order industry to replace inaccessible buried pipes with corrosion-resistant materials installed in above-grade vaults so that they can be monitored, maintained and contained if a leak should occur," says Gunter in one of the report's recommendations. "Leak First, Fix Later" further recommends ways to make the issue more publicly transparent and hold the industry more accountable for the protection of groundwater.

Gunter points out in the report that Exelon was caught with leaking buried pipes at its New Jersey Oyster Creek nuclear power plant only days after receiving a 20-year license extension from NRC in April 2009. On October 22, 2009, Exelon volunteered to make just such a commitment and replace all its buried pipes carrying radioactive water by the end of 2010. Advocates from the communities surrounding Oyster Creek are closely watching Exelon to see if it will honor its "voluntary" commitment on time and establish itself as an industry leader.

MORNING ZETAR.

Health risks

Tritium is an isotope of hydrogen, which allows it to readily bind to hydroxyl radicals, forming tritiated water (HTO), and to carbon atoms. Since tritium is a low energy beta emitter, it is not dangerous externally (its beta particles are unable to penetrate the skin),[20] but it is a radiation hazard when inhaled, ingested via food or water, or absorbed through the skin.[21][22][23][24] HTO has a short biological half-life in the human body of 7 to 14 days, which both reduces the total effects of single-incident ingestion and precludes long-term bioaccumulation of HTO from the environment.[23][25] Biological half life of tritiated water in human body, which is a measure of body water turn over, varies with season. Studies on biological half life of occupational radiation workers for free water tritium in the coastal region of Karnataka, India show that the biological half life in winter season is twice that of the summer season.[26]

According to the U.S. EPA, "a recently documented source of tritium in the environment is 'self-illuminating' exit signs that have been illegally disposed of in municipal landfills. Water, which seeps through the landfill, is contaminated with tritium from broken signs and can pass into water ways, carrying the tritium with it."[27]

Tritium has leaked from 48 of 65 nuclear sites in the US. In one case, leaking water contained 7.5 microcuries (0.28 MBq) of tritium per litre, which is 375 times the EPA limit for drinking water.[28]

The US Nuclear Regulatory Commission states that in normal operation in 2003, 56 pressurized water reactors released 40,600 curies (1.50 PBq) of tritium (maximum: 2,080; minimum: 0.1; average: 725) and 24 boiling water reactors released 665 curies (24.6 TBq) (maximum: 174; minimum: 0; average: 27.7), in liquid effluents.[

Surely the types that are a risk, or there would be no point in monitoring. Also while they are on the ground, so are we.



Hi Hal. grin May I ~ stir ~ a little for a sec. wink

Monitoring is a good thing, even if it is only picking up gamma (x-rays) using most geiger detectors.

The others I was referring to would be the alpha and beta rays. These consist of strontium, cesium, Iodone, etc. Personally Hal, I still, after all those years after Chernobyl, wouldn't eat the Welsh lamb.

How about Tokyo ? Godzilla anyone ? rolleyes

I'm curious how those involved in management (heroes imo) and cleanup directly at the plant are doing healthwise. They were/are using protective suits against alpha and beta particles, but not the gamma.
Heroes some may ask? :
Those who stayed behind placing themselves in harms way to contain the situation against advisory from their higher ups basically, in a nutshell, saved the Northern Hemisphere of this planet.
Remember, there was mox fuel which changed the entire scenario. The timeline was narrow and critical. That cannot be emphasized enough.
Ever heard of skyshine ? Not a good thing. As Michio Kaku sort of put it : We were hanging on by our fingernails. He couldn't have said it better.

Mistakes were made in the design of this facility and others. What was suppose to save money by cutting corners ended up to be this instead, not to mention those affected and displaced. Notice what TIME Magazine's Nancy Gibbs wrote in the aftermath of the quake. :

Quote:
“It only started as a natural disaster; the next waves were all man-made, as money fled to higher ground. Fear and uncertainty sheared $700 billion off the Toyko Stock Exchange in three days. Japan makes nearly a quarter of the world’s semiconductors and most of its gadgets. Sony suspended production at seven plants;
carmakers slowed output, fearful of gaps in the supply chain; power companies scheduled rolling blackouts. How can a global recovery take hold if the world’s third largest economy is out of business, even temporarily? Meanwhile, Switzerland announced a freeze on new nuclear plants, Germany shut down all its facilities built before 1980, and the U.S. Congress called for hearings on nuclear safety.

We sleep easy in the soft arms of clichés: hope for the best, prepare for the worst; risk varies inversely with knowledge; it’s a waste of time to think about the unthinkable. But Japan shook those soothing assumptions. No amount of planning, no skills or specs or spreadsheets, can stop a force that moves the planet.

I have been thinking outside the box so to say.

You may know I have Cadmium on my mind most of the time. Over the years I have read an awful lot about it.
I wondered what possible use it could be in the Fukishima incident. I am not clever enough to know its possibilities.
Here are a couple of links to help me explain where I am going with this.
Link one Link Two
I read once that cadmium rods were used in the initial testing of nuclear bombs, when withdrawn from the chamber, fission started and increasingly built until the rods were reinserted. Wouldnt it be possible to use this to end the reaction. Nowadays with cadmium being man-made, it can be in liquid form. I dont know if any of this is possible, it just keeps running over in my mind. rolleyes

Feds Spent $19 Billion To Clean Up Nuke Site But It Could Still explode


Ethan Barton

A Fukushima-like explosion could result if a Department of Energy project to treat nuclear waste continues to fail – mostly due to government and contractor mismanagement – despite the $19 billion it has cost since 1989.

The Hanford Site in Washington State began operating in 1943 as part of the Manhattan Project to produce plutonium for the nation’s nuclear weapons program. It ultimately included nine reactors and generated 56 million gallons of radioactive waste by the time operations were closed in 1987.

Cliff,

I don't know whether or not you know about this..

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyshtym_disaster

Zhores Medvedev is famous for exposing the Kyshtym nuclear disaster, which occurred at Mayak near Kyshtym, Ozyorsk, Chelyabinsk Oblast in the Urals in 1957. He published the book The Nuclear Disaster in the Urals in 1979 (W.W. Norton, New York).

I've read this book and it is an excellent description of how you can investigate using indirect methods.

Highly recommended to anyone who can get hold of a copy.

Thelmadonna,

Cadnium is used to give corrosion protection to some nuts and bolts. That is what gives them a yellowish sheen.

Problem is that it is poisonous.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cadmium_poisoning

Used in reactor control rods as a moderator it's purpose is to prevent the neutrons from causing a runaway reaction with uranium.
I don't think it can be used to mop up radio active particles.
