'Unprecedented' Summerlong Flood Threatens Missouri River Dams and Levees
By LAUREN MORELLO of ClimateWire
Published: June 7, 2011

Record snowpack and heavy rains have filled Missouri River reservoirs to the brim, and federal officials say their only option now is to release massive amounts of water.

The resulting flooding could last along the river until mid-August, they said, threatening communities stretching from Montana to Missouri.

"There are some extremely high water levels that will persist for quite a period of time," said Lynn Maximuk, director of the National Weather Service's central region. "The rises along the Missouri have been caused by really a year's worth of rainfall across the basin over the last two weeks. In addition, snowfall in the mountains is at about 140 percent of normal."

That has created "unprecedented" runoff that federal officials say can no longer be contained within the six dams built to tame the Missouri's flows.

The Army Corps of Engineers is planning to release record amounts of water at all six dams, said Kevin Grode, Missouri Basin Reservoir Regulation Team leader for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Yes, with farmland being flooded for the entire summer the farmers can kiss this growing season goodbye and there will be food shortages during the winter months. I agree, stock up now and also grow your own food to stock up if possible. It's going to get rough.

BISMARCK, ND – The US Army Corps of Engineers reported this morning that the peek release of 150,000 cubic feet per second (cfs) for the 5 lower dams, including Garrison Dam, is certain. The flows will continue through at least mid-August.

Currently, waters from Garrison dam are at being released at a rate of 118,300 cfs, which will be increased to a rate of 130,000 today. Scheduled increased releases from Garrison are currently as follows: 135,000 cfs on Friday, June 10; 140,000 cfs on June 15; 145,000 cfs on June 16; and the peek flow of 150,000 on Friday, June 17.

The six dams along the Missouri River are operated solely by the Army Corps of Engineers under federal authority. Although the Corps does work to keep the Governor and National Guard informed, the state has no power to determine the level and scheduling of releases.

Officials offer mixed messages on flooding

Emergency planners will have their eyes on Buffalo County in the coming days.

Region 5/6 Emergency Manager Bill Pook said the impact on Dodge and Saunders counties of water coming down the Platte River will first be seen in the Buffalo County area, about two days before it gets to Dodge County.

Pook warned this week that increased releases of water into the Platte River are planned from Kinglsey Dam and Lake McConaughy north of North Platte.

"The bottom line for all the people on the Saunders County side and the Dodge County side," Pook told the Tribune, "is it's not a matter of if it will flood, we will have flooding on the Platte River this summer."

The remaining question, he said, is how extensive the flooding will be.

"Our big question to the state is how we are going to be able to judge the affect of that increase, what does it mean to our citizens that live along the river," Pook said. "That (information) we don't have.

"From North Platte down into Buffalo County the Platte River is so spread out and the land is so flat that they don't know how much of that is going to be absorbed in that area versus coming downstream," he said. "When the high waters reach Buffalo County, that's when the state of Nebraska and the Army Corps of Engineers is going to start to take measurements to try to see what the affect will be for us downstream."

Katie Knapp Schubert (2011-06-06)

OMAHA, NE (kios) - Rising Missouri River flood water has forced OPPD to declare a Notification of Unusual Event at its Fort Calhoun Nuclear Plant.

OPPD made the announcement in a news release this afternoon. Such notifications are made when events are happening or have happened that will impact the plant. In the news release, OPPD says the river is expected to rise to 1,004 feet above sea level this week and remain there for at least a month.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission, NEMA, and Iowa emergency management officials have been notified. OPPD says the plant is currently shut down for refueling and they don't expect any radioactive material to be released.

The Missouri River is two feet above flood stage in Washington County, and rising.

A flood assessment performed by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission in 2010 indicated that the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Generating Station, "did not have adequate procedures to protect the intake structure and auxiliary building against external flooding events."

The assessment also indicated that the facility was not adequately prepared for a "worst-case" flooding scenario.

A number of potential flood water penetration points were discovered that could have impacted the raw feed water supply to the cooling system, the auxiliary water supply and main switchgear (electrical) room.

OMAHA, Neb. -- Fort Calhoun's nuclear power plant is one of three reactors across the country that federal regulators said they are most concerned about.

Nuclear Regulatory Commission officials said Fort Calhoun's reactor is operating safely, but it's still on the shortlist because they want to make sure it's prepared to handle major emergencies, like flooding.

Last year, federal regulators questioned the station's flood protection protocol. NRC officials said they felt the Omaha Public Power District should do more than sandbagging in the event of major flooding along the Missouri river.

Ft. Calhoun, NE- Just before 10 Tuesday morning, officials at the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Power plant noticed a small fire in a switch gear room.

The fire was contained to an electrical panel. Although it did create quite a bit of smoke, the fire was quickly put out.

Washington County officials say no one was evacuated and there are no safety threats due to the fire. They couldn't say if flooding caused the fire.

Fort Calhoun is currently off-line for refueling. Sandbagging and other precautions continue to protect the plant.  Monday, OPPD notified the Nuclear Regulatory Commission of a low-level emergency, called Notification of Unusual Event.

Record Missouri River floods keep getting worse
Mark Guarino | The Christian Science Monitor | Jun 07, 2011

Heavy flooding along the Missouri River will last throughout the summer, predict federal officials. The surging waters, created by unprecedented weather conditions, have already caused levee failures, and more are expected to come.

The Missouri River and its tributaries in Montana, North Dakota, and South Dakota are swelling with water. A confluence of factors are driving the rising waters, notably the record heavy snowfall earlier this year in the Rocky Mountain region. Snow accumulation was 140 percent above normal, says Lynn Maximuk, director of the National Weather Service in the central region.

“We do have quite an unusual set of circumstances, meteorologically,” Mr. Maximuk told reporters Monday afternoon.

The unusually heavy snows – combined with ongoing heavy rains, expected to continue all summer – will create a total runoff of some 55 million acre-feet of water, according to projections from the US Army Corps of Engineers. (An acre-foot of water is the equivalent of one foot of water covering one acre of land.)

That’s the highest runoff level since they began keeping records in 1898.

The immediate danger this week comes from heavy storms, expected to move south along the river valley. Meteorologists predict that 2 inches of rain in Montana and North Dakota and up to 3 inches of rain in Omaha, Neb., will fall over the next few days, Maximuk says.

May was the second-wettest month for northern Wyoming, Montana, and North Dakota since 1889.

To relieve pressure on the river, the Corps plans to release 150,000 cubic feet per second of water at the Oahe Dam above Pierre, S.D., on Tuesday. The other dams will be opened in succession, remaining open through mid-August.

NASA NAZI's say: Sun Unleashes 'Spectacular' & Powerful Eruption
http://www.space.com/11893-huge-sun-eruption-spectacular-solar-flare.html
by Tariq Malik, SPACE.com Managing Editor
Date: 07 June 2011 Time: 02:21 PM ET

The sun unleashed a massive solar storm today (June 7) in a dazzling eruption that kicked up a vast cloud of magnetic plasma that appeared to rain back down over half of the sun's entire surface, NASA scientists say. The solar storm hit its peak at about 2:41 a.m. EDT (0641 GMT), but the actual flare extended over a three-hour period, said C. Alex Young, a solar astrophysicist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center who runs a website called The Sun Today, in a video describing the event. "The sun produced a quite spectacular prominence eruption that had a solar flare and high-energy particles associated with it, but I've just never seen material released like this before," Young said. "It looks like somebody just kicked a giant clod of dirt into the air and then it fell back down." NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory spacecraft caught high-definition video of the flare in different wavelengths. The event registered as a Class M-2 solar flare, which is a medium-class sun storm that should not pose a danger to satellites or infrastructure on Earth. An alert by the NOAA-operated Space Weather Prediction Center stated that the solar flare could create a strong geomagnetic storm on Wednesday (June 9) from the event's coronal mass ejection (CME), an explosion of charged particles triggered by the flare. Geomagnetic storms can lead to stronger than normal displays of Earth's auroras, also known as the northern and southern lights. "It's nothing we really have to worry about," Young said in his video. "It's just really, really beautiful." The coronal mass ejection is directed at Earth and moving at about 3.1 million mph (5 million kph), SDO mission scientists said in a statement. "Due to its angle, however, effects on Earth should be fairly small. Nevertheless, it may generate space weather effects here on Earth in a few days," they added. In the SDO videos, the solar flare erupts from the lower right of the sun and triggers the intense coronal mass ejection, which blows plasma and particles high up into the sun's corona — its outer atmosphere — with some raining back down. SDO mission scientists said the flare kicked up relatively cool gas and material.  "It is somewhat unique because at many places in the eruption there seems to be even cooler material —at temperatures less than 80,000 Kelvin," SDO scientists explained. A temperature of 80,000 Kelvin is about 143,540 degrees Fahrenheit (nearly 79,727 degrees Celsius). The sun's corona typically has temperatures ranging from 900,000 degrees F (500,000 degrees C) to 10.8 million degrees F (6 million degrees C). It can reach tens of millions of degrees when a solar flare occurs.  The sun is currently going through an active period in it is 11-year solar weather cycle. The current cycle is called solar cycle 24. Several NASA spacecraft are keeping constant watch on the sun for flares and CMEs, and serve as an early-warning system for major space weather events.

Neb. nuclear plant briefly loses pumps that cool spent fuel during suspected electrical blaze

By Associated Press, Published: June 8

OMAHA, Neb. — A small fire briefly knocked out the cooling system for used fuel at a nuclear power plant in Nebraska, but temperatures never exceeded safe levels and power was quickly restored, federal officials said Wednesday.

The electrical system running the pumps that cool spent fuel in a pool of water was disrupted by a suspected electrical fire Tuesday, though one pump was restored shortly after the incident and another was running Wednesday, utility officials said.

Expert Warns Missouri River Could See “Flood of Biblical Proportions”
June 8, 2011 9:48 AM

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) -  An expert on Missouri River reservoirs is sounding a very loud, very urgent warning about the chance of catastrophic flooding this summer.

Bernard Shanks, an adviser to the Resource Renewal Institute, says the Fort Peck Dam and five others along the Missouri are already full with the Army Corps of Engineers releasing record amounts of water to prepare for snow-melt and heavy rain up-river.

        Listen to Bernard Shanks Interview

As a guest on KMOX’s Total Information AM Wednesday, Shanks was asked what he fears will happen should the Fort Peck Dam fail and set off a chain-reaction.

“There would be a flood like you’ve never seen,” Shanks told hosts Doug McElvein and Debbie Monterrey.  “It would be literally of biblical proportions.”

He foresees a very real threat of “chest-high” water in St. Louis before summer’s end.

Shanks’ main concern: that the Fort Peck dam, which he maintains is built with a “flawed design”, would be overwhelmed by snow-melt and heavy rains up north and give way, causing reservoirs downstream to collapse in a domino effect.

If that happens?

“It would be the most epic man-made disaster in the United States,” Shanks replied bluntly.

ST. LOUIS–(KMOX)–Some are getting ready, but many are not,  as the National Weather Service is warning there could be serious flooding along the Missouri River here by next week.

Depending on how much rain falls up north,   the Missouri River could crest here between three-to-fifteen feet above flood stage, according to meteorologist Jason Goesslin.

The Missouri River rolls past Chesterfield Valley,  a flood plain that has been developed with millions of dollars of office parks, movie houses and retail centers since it went underwater in the flood of ’93. Few Preparing for Possible Flooding on Missouri River Here

Crews racing floodwaters to build up Iowa levee

By GRANT SCHULTE and JOSH FUNK
Associated Press

HAMBURG, Iowa (AP) -- Crews are trying to beat floodwaters expected to arrive in Hamburg on Tuesday by building up a secondary barrier to protect the small Iowa town after the swollen Missouri River punched a massive hole in the main levee.

The river ruptured two levees in northwest Missouri on Monday, sending torrents of water over rural farmland toward Hamburg in southwest Iowa and a Missouri resort community downriver. By Wednesday, water spilling through a nearly 300-foot hole in the levee near Hamburg was expected to top a secondary levee built last week to protect the town.

The Army Corps of Engineers said crews are working to increase that wall's height by 3 feet. If it breaks, parts of Hamburg could be under as much as 10 feet of standing water, officials said.

"For right now, we believe we'll be able to get that elevation raised in the time available as that water flows across in the next 48 hours," Col. Bob Ruch, the corps' Omaha District commander, said Monday evening. "We've had excellent working conditions."

Across the border in Missouri, the river broke a 225-foot-wide hole through a levee near Big Lake in Holt County. About 30 residents had stayed in the resort town after the river started rising, but they were told to leave Monday. Big Lake is about 45 miles south of Hamburg.

Governor: Punishing amounts of water threaten levees

By JORDAN PASCALE / Lincoln Journal Star | Posted: Tuesday, June 14, 2011 6:15 pm

Gov. Dave Heineman returned Tuesday evening from a flight during which he surveyed rising floodwaters that continue to strain levees in the South Sioux City area.

Heineman commended the city's leadership and preparation and praised interstate cooperation among Iowa, South Dakota and Nebraska officials at news conferences in Lincoln's Air National Guard base and one earlier in the day in South Sioux City.

"They feel very well-prepared," he said.

The river at Sioux City, Iowa, reached 33.12 feet by midafternoon Tuesday, down from 33.55 feet in the morning, as the release from Gavins Point Dam in Yankton, S.D., reached a historic high of 150,000 cubic feet per second.

Most levees around the Missouri River are built to withstand surge waters for three to four days, according to Nebraska Emergency Management officials.

This year, they likely will face punishing amounts of water for several months as the Army Corps of Engineers releases record amounts of water from Gavins Point.

"As the volume of water and the speed increases, we need to be very watchful in our state along the Missouri River," Heineman said.

Heineman’s worry: Will levees hold?

By Paul Hammel
WORLD-HERALD STAFF WRITER

SOUTH SIOUX CITY, Neb. — As Gov. Dave Heineman stood on a muddy temporary dike, local officials proclaimed their community safe from the rising floodwaters of the Missouri River.

But Heineman’s concerns were downstream, near Omaha — where water surrounds the nuclear power plant at Fort Calhoun, a state prison in east Omaha may have to be evacuated and workers were fighting to protect Eppley Airfield.

As the surge of water from reservoirs makes its way downstream, he said, the main focus will be on whether earthen levees can withstand weeks of pressure from record-high water.

“We’re at a critical stage,” Heineman said. “The levees were meant for a surge. What happens if water is there for several months? That is what we’re really concerned about.”

He spent most of Tuesday afternoon in a Black Hawk helicopter, surveying the expanding floodwaters from South Sioux City to Omaha.

There was visibly more water covering lowland fields along the Missouri between the two cities, he said, as well as higher water surrounding the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station just north of Omaha.

With floodwaters expected to remain high for weeks, it will put levees to an extreme test.

Can they take a long-term licking? Or will they crumble, like the breach that opened Monday in a levee near Hamburg, Iowa?

“It’s just an unknown,” said Joe Boyd, the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s liaison for the State of Nebraska, said during the tour. “They’ve never, ever seen this before.”

FEMA Deliberately Sabotaging Hurricane Relief Efforts

Multiple parishes revolt, use armed guards to defend against feds

Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones
September 6, 2005

Numerous credible sources have come forward with examples of how the Federal Emergency Management Agency is deliberately sabotaging Hurricane Katrina relief efforts in New Orleans. This represents a ruthless attempt on the part of FEMA to impose a federal takeover of the area for their own benefit amid a tragedy that has already claimed anything up to 10,000 lives.

The mainstream media has picked up on this story but is whitewashing it as just another 'failure' of the federal government in dealing with the crisis.

In reality the actions are part of a coordinated campaign to deepen the scope of the disaster in order to force through bumper funding increases for FEMA.

Jefferson Parish President Aaron Broussard (pictured below) appeared on Meet the Press Sunday and broke down in tears as he described FEMA's criminal activities.

"We have been abandoned by our own country. Hurricane Katrina will go down in history as one of the worst storms ever to hit an American coast, but the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina will go down as one of the worst abandonments of Americans on American soil ever in U.S. history."

(http://www.prisonplanet.com/images/september2005/060905brous.jpg)

We had Wal-Mart deliver three trucks of water, trailer trucks of water. FEMA turned them back. They said we didn't need them. This was a week ago. FEMA--we had 1,000 gallons of diesel fuel on a Coast Guard vessel docked in my parish. The Coast Guard said, "Come get the fuel right away." When we got there with our trucks, they got a word. "FEMA says don't give you the fuel." Yesterday--yesterday--FEMA comes in and cuts all of our emergency communication lines. They cut them without notice. Our sheriff, Harry Lee, goes back in, he reconnects the line. He posts armed guards on our line and says, "No one is getting near these lines."

Why would FEMA, an organization supposedly tasked with helping in a time of crisis, deliberately cut police communication lines? This is a blatant example of sabotage and a sick push to make the disaster worse. In carrying out these actions, FEMA are no better than the animals who shot at rescue workers and helicopters.

Watch the video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9dJjAEVZ4g) of the Meet the Press interview.

The mission of FEMA has never in reality been to bring people food and water and help in times of crisis. Alex Jones has attended numerous FEMA drills where the whole point of the exercise is to round people up, break up families and institute a brutal police state crackdown.

FEMA need to create a chaotic atmosphere in New Orleans so they can legitimize what they are doing.

We now have multiple reports of police being ordered to guard key infrastructures in order to defend them from FEMA federal agents. Sheriffs in numerous different counties are guarding highways to keep FEMA out. FEMA is being treated as the enemy because they are sabotaging key facilities in an effort to intentionally worsen the already desperate scenes of horror in New Orleans.

(http://www.prisonplanet.com/images/september2005/060905dead.jpg)

FEMA is sabotaging lines of communication so their activities cannot be exposed to the wider relief authorities and the media.

Commenting on the sabotage by FEMA of communication lines, Washington insider Wayne Madsen states,

"Jamming radio and other communications such as television signals is part of a Pentagon tactic called "information blockade" or "technology blockade." The tactic is one of a number of such operations that are part of the doctrine of "information warfare" and is one of the psychological operations (PSYOPS) methods used by the US Special Operations Command."

Radio host Carol Baker who has been tracking the FEMA sabotage stated that Plaquemines Parish Sheriff Jeff Hingle had his deputies patrol the county line under orders not to let FEMA in.

As is discussed in the Meet the Press interview, Jefferson Parish Sheriff Harry Lee also has armed guards patrolling the county line in order to prevent the FEMA sabotage.

FEMA has a number of executive orders that outline the total federal takeover of any US city.

For a full synopsis of FEMA's executive orders in light of the hurricane, click here (http://prisonplanet.com/Pages/Sept05/060905FEMA.htm).

FEMA is clearly using this human catastrophe as a means of executing its decade long plans and providing the pretext for future takeover scenarios of all major American cities.

Amongst a litany of government inaction and outright dereliction, this is the most alarming evidence to emerge yet that clearly indicates an agenda for the federal government to profit and expand its power from exploiting the aftermath of the hurricane.

We will continue to track this story as it develops.

In Harm's Way

When it comes to building on flood-prone land, no place does it like St. Louis.

"The St. Louis area is the epicenter of floodplain encroachment nationwide," says Nicholas Pinter, an SIUC geologist whose article on the subject appeared in an April 2005 issue of the journal Science.

"Because of the extent of human development on the floodplain, our research suggests that the next [flood] may well be bigger than the last," he says.

(http://perspect.siuc.edu/05_fall/images/pinter_map.jpg)

"More than any other place, the greater St. Louis metropolitan area is allowing its floodplain to turn into new strip mall development. It has $2.2 billion in new development on land that was under water in 1993--18,000 acres either in construction behind levees or in the planning stages. It's unprecedented."

The Federal Emergency Management Agency spent $56 million to buy out floodplain properties in Missouri and Illinois after the great Midwest flood of 1993. But subsequent floodplain development, which has been concentrated in the St. Louis metropolitan area, is "counterbalancing" the good that FEMA did, Pinter asserts.

Fort Calhoun Nuclear Power Plant is an island, but authorities are hoping it stays dry.
...
A fire in Nebraska's Fort Calhoun nuclear power plant briefly knocked out the cooling process for spent nuclear fuel rods, ProPublica reports.  The fire occurred on June 7th, and knocked out cooling for approximately 90 minutes. After 88 hours, the cooling pool would boil dry and highly radioactive materials would be exposed. On June 6th, the Federal Administration Aviation (FAA) issued a directive banning aircraft from entering the airspace within a two-mile radius of the plant.
...
OPPD spokesman Jeff Hanson told Business Insider that the nuclear plant is in a "stable situation." He said the Missouri River is currently at 1005.6" above sea level, and that no radioactive fuel had yet been released or was expected to be released in the future.

Asked about the FAA flight ban, Hanson it was due to high power lines and "security reasons that we can't reveal." He said the flight ban remains in effect.

Fort Calhoun's single reactor has been shut down since April for refueling. The plant had already been operating under a heightened level of alert because of nearby flooding on the Missouri River, the NRC said. The cause of the fire remained under investigation this morning.

Bad Combination: Floodplains, nuclear materials and understated risk
http://www.stlbeacon.org/voices/in-the-news/111003-flooding-raises-nuclear-risks
By Bob Criss, special to the Beacon  
Posted 7:00 am Fri., 6.17.11

It's only June but one thing is certain: 2011 is another extraordinary flood year. The record high water levels just experienced on the Mississippi from Cairo to Baton Rouge will soon be joined by new record levels on the Missouri River at numerous sites above Kansas City. The vagaries of rainfall delivery will dictate how bad things will become and how far downstream serious problems will propagate, but indications are that many dozens of levees will fail, either by overtopping, under-seepage or simply because they will be water saturated for long periods of time.

How is it that this extraordinary flood year came so soon after the extraordinary flood year of 2008, which came so soon after the extraordinary flood years of 2001, 1995 and 1993? The explanation is that damaging episodes of high water are no longer statistically extraordinary, but rather represent the new norm. Describing these events as "50-year," "100-year" or "500-year" floods grossly mischaracterizes what's happening.

Understated flood risk is not an academic matter. Faulty risk calculations are used by FEMA to set flood insurance rates that are too low and to define flood zones that are too narrow.

Understated risk promotes development projects that place property and lives in hazardous areas. Ironically these same developments encroach on rivers and floodplains in a way that amplifies flood frequency and increases floodwater levels. At the same time, valuable farmland is destroyed, habitat is eliminated and surface water and ground water resources are degraded.

In cases where floodplain development projects are encouraged by TIFFs and other inappropriate financial inducements, tax revenues can actually go down, even as municipal responsibilities to provide services such as police and fire protection go up.

Counterproductive enough? Not for some Now combine the high and progressively increasing likelihood of flooding with the placement of nuclear materials in floodplains. Let's examine two examples.

Incredibly, large volumes of the oldest radioactive waste materials of the Atomic Age were dumped at West Lake landfill in Bridgeton in 1973. From every conceivable viewpoint, the situation is deplorable. Radwaste does not belong in the most populous county in Missouri, near the Missouri River, upstream of several water intakes and within 1.5 miles of Interstates 70 and 270.

This site has high risk factors for flooding and is underlain by soils that have high potential to undergo liquefaction during seismic shaking. USGS maps indicate that the potential for strong shaking is significant in this area, so the possibility for slumping of the landfill or the protective levee is significant, particularly during flood years when shallow sediments become saturated. Moreover, the landfill does not have a clay liner or any other protective barrier, nor does it have the leachate collection and drainage systems that are standard in modern landfills.

The landfill is not capped, so wind erosion and rainwater penetration can disseminate radwaste. Historical slumping of the landfill has already spread radwaste over adjacent fields. The waste has not been adequately characterized, but enough is known to establish that its level of radioactivity will increase approximately tenfold over time. This can occur because the systematic decay of the radionuclides produces several additional short-lived "daughter" radioisotopes that will cause the radioactivity of this waste to grow for thousands of years. Few things are as absurd as burying such waste in a substandard landfill in a floodplain in a populous area.

As another example, two nuclear power plants in Nebraska have been constructed in the Missouri River floodplain where new records for flood levels are expected to be set this June. The Fort Calhoun Nuclear Plant has been recently sandbagged, only a year after the plant was cited for having inadequate flood protection. Floodwaters are already adjacent to several of the buildings, and water levels are projected to increase by at least five feet. Fortunately, the reactor was recently shut down for refueling, but about 300 tons of spent fuel rods have accumulated onsite over the years. Make no mistake; some of the most serious, recent problems and explosions at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant involved spent fuel, not just the active reactors.

Of course, the NRC and power industry promoters routinely assure us that the risk of nuclear accidents is incredibly low, something akin to the probability of being attacked by a shark while riding a ski lift. The historical record provides a more realistic and vastly higher assessment of nuclear risk. More than 2 percent of the world's 440 nuclear power reactors have been irreparably harmed by nuclear accidents during their operating lifetimes - prominent cases are Chernobyl, Three Mile Island and Fukushima.

The bottom line is that understated risk is rampant and the consequences can be economically and environmentally disastrous. Understated risk fosters inappropriate land use in high-risk geologic areas, causing harm that can spread far beyond the boundaries of the offending properties. In contrast, realistic risk calculations and improved economic assessment of construction projects will promote wise land use and resource conservation, while reducing the economic burden caused by flooding or other disasters. Thoughtful stewardship will increase opportunities for research, innovation, enterprise and job creation, and ensure a brighter and more equitable future for all.

South Dakota eyes stepped up Missouri River dam releases

Michael Avok Reuters

2:26 p.m. EDT, June 18, 2011

HAMBURG, Iowa (Reuters) - Federal officials increased water releases from two South Dakota dams on Saturday to make room for expected potentially heavy rains through early next week, adding to flooding woes along the Missouri River.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers water releases from five dams in North Dakota and South Dakota had already about doubled prior records to relieve reservoirs swollen by heavy winter snows and spring rainfall at the river's Montana headwaters.

With severe storms expected through Tuesday that could dump inches of rain in some areas, the Corps plans to increase flows by nearly 7 percent at the Oahe Dam above Pierre, South Dakota's capital, and the Big Bend Dam just downstream.

"We do have the potential for a strong storm system," Andy Church, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Aberdeen, South Dakota, said on Saturday.

Some 2 to 3 inches of rain could hit areas of North Central and Eastern South Dakota, with flooding possible on the outside of levees in Pierre, Church added...

...The Corps plans to release 155,000 cubic feet per second from the Oahe and Big Bend dams on Saturday and 160,000 on Sunday, up from the roughly 150,000 it has been releasing.

Coming only a few months after Japan's nuclear disaster, the Associated Press images alarmed many people who saw them earlier this week. But nuclear regulators and the utility that runs the Fort Calhoun reactor say there is little cause for immediate concern.
 

Forecasts now say a peak wave of floodwaters from the Missouri River won’t hit the Kansas City area until roughly Wednesday.

But another forecast has drawn concern from the Army Corps of Engineers.

Heavy rainfall expected over the Dakotas in coming days, combined with rains from the past few weeks, have officials worried they’re running out of space in upstream dams, potentially forcing them to release even more pent-up water downstream.

“We’re watching the forecast every day,” said Jody Farhat, chief of the Army Corps’ Missouri River Basin water management division. “We’re a few days out before we have to make decisions.”

Army Corps officials are using a complex system of dams and levees to stop some water here, release a little there, tensely twiddling the knobs of the Missouri River in an effort to prevent as much flooding as possible.

The river, and the huge basin that feeds it, is a complicated machine where everything is variable: water levels that swell from bursts of rainfall, levees that break unexpectedly and an interconnected series of dams that shoot billions of gallons of water downstream.

One of the Army Corps’ biggest tools is the Gavins Point Dam, the last stop for the Missouri River in South Dakota, which will blast out a record 150,000 cubic feet of water per second through at least mid-August.

Officials now think they might have to boost the amount to 160,000 cubic feet, saying they’re running out of options to manage all the water upstream.

“At this point, we have very little flexibility remaining,” Farhat said.

The endless complexities have made prediction a tough task, said Ross Wolford, a hydrologist working long days for the National Weather Service in order to try to predict the river’s flow.

Dear Nebraska: Sorry about water, but more on the way. Love, Montana

 

From his tackle shop near Three Forks, Mont., Rich Gay is watching three rivers.
They're running high out of the mountains, skirting his town, fraying his nerves and converging, more than a mile away.
This is the headwaters of the Missouri River -- and the source this summer of so much Nebraska pain.
But this isn't where the flood begins.
The flood begins higher up, at places like Dark Horse Lake in the Bitterroots, where another 2 inches of snow fell late this week, landing on the 8 feet still on the ground.
And when hot weather finally reaches those upper elevations -- starting next month -- all of that snow will melt and flow and become, eventually, the floodwaters threatening Sioux City and Omaha and Plattsmouth and so many other river towns downstream.
"It's all starting here," said Jim Brusda with the National Weather Service in Great Falls, Mont. "It's going to flow back down there toward Nebraska."
It will take its time to get this far downriver. The Dark Horse snowmelt, for example, first must find its way to the Clark Canyon Reservoir, then to the Beaverhead River, then to the Jefferson River.
The bloated Jefferson will join the Madison and Gallatin rivers near Three Forks -- and near Gay's tackle shop.
Where it was raining Friday afternoon. "And it's snowing in the mountains."
Seems like it's feast or famine with the Missouri, he said. Until this year, it's mostly been famine -- with downstream states demanding more Missouri River water from upstream states to keep barges moving.
Those downstream states have more than enough water now. But so does Montana.
"People who have been here 50 years, 70 years, say they haven't seen anything like this," Gay said. "All small streams, creeks are full. There are towns that are flooded and cut off. And there's a lot of water to come."
The snow-water equivalent in some areas is 400 percent; meaning, snow that usually is 2 feet deep this time of year is 8 feet, something that happens maybe once every 50 years, Brusda said.

NPPD says there is no threat to plant employees or the general public. The plant continues to operate safely. The Omaha Public Power District made the same declaration nearly two weeks ago when the Missouri River continued to rise near the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station.

NPPD says its plans dictate that when the Missouri River’s water level reaches 42.5 feet, or greater than 899 feet above sea level, the notification of an unusual event is declared. If the river’s level increases to 900 feet above sea level, plant personnel will barricade internal doorways as another layer of protection for facility equipment. At 902 feet, the plant would be taken offline as a protective safety measure.

A Notification of Unusual Event is the lowest and least serious of four emergency classifications established by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for nuclear power plants.

The Cooper Nuclear Station is three miles southeast of Brownville, Nebraska along the Missouri River.

Looks as is there is more to this whole situation with the Garrison Dam (now at over 103% capacity according to documents obtained by our sources (http://www.nwd-mr.usace.army.mil/rcc/reports/showrep.cgi?3MRDTAP7)) and the mandatory evacuation of Minot North Dakota put in place by FEMA.

Troop, equipment, and other strange movements have taken place throughout the CONUS over the past week as The Intel Hub and The Power Hour has documented with photos, videos, and TIPs from good citizens.

This is all taking place during massive full scale military exercises — not good.

Over 56 NOTAM’s with a lot of suspicious VIP movements (http://tfr.faa.gov/tfr2/list.html) have be put in effect over the last two weeks (this is not normal).

Missouri River crests, breaking records of 1993 floods
By MATT PEARCE
The Kansas City Star

The Missouri River hit historic highs around northwest Missouri on Wednesday as officials prepared to unleash even more water into the area.

National Weather Service measurements taken near Big Lake and Phelps City, both about two hours northwest of Kansas City, showed crests beating every mark on record — even 1993’s peaks.

“Missouri River water will remain dangerously high for the foreseeable future,” said Col. Anthony Hoffman of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Kansas City office.

Residents in Holt County in northwest Missouri are already facing advancing floodwaters, which have defeated at least one levee there and are nearing the tops of others.

Meanwhile, Army Corps officials slowly opened up the Gavins Point Dam in South Dakota to release even more water downstream into the Missouri River to relieve overwhelmed reservoirs in northern states.

Gavins Point is expected to release 160,000 cubic feet of water per second starting today.

Levee breaks north of Brownville

Floodwaters from the Missouri river overtop a levy in Brownville, Neb., Sunday, June, 19, 2011. When the Missouri River reached 42.5 feet, or 899 feet above sea level Sunday morning, the Nebraska Public Power District issued a flooding alert for its nuclear power plant, Cooper Nuclear Station. Cooper, located near Brownville, is at 903 feet elevation, and NPPD officials said the river would have to climb to 902 feet at Brownville before officials would shut down the plant. (AP)

A levee three miles north of Brownville in Missouri failed at about 9 p.m. Thursday, right in front a pair of people patrolling there.

"It happened so quick that they were concerned that they may not be able to escape," Mark Manchester, deputy emergency management director for Atchison County, Mo., said late Thursday. "The water was coming through fast and hard. … We're not sure what the size of the break is so far."

Officials have ordered the evacuation of all of the county west of Interstate 29, he said. That includes the towns of Phelps City, Langdon and Watson, as well as the Nishnabotna Conservation Area.

Manchester said the extent of the breach likely wouldn't be clear until daybreak.

Flood berm collapsed at Nebraska nuclear plant

Posted: Jun 26, 2011 11:59 AM Updated: Jun 26, 2011 11:59 AM

FORT CALHOUN, Neb. (AP) - A berm holding back floodwater at the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station has collapsed.

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission says it's monitoring the Missouri River flooding at the plant, which has been shut down since early April for refueling.

The 2,000-foot berm collapsed about 1:30 a.m. Sunday, allowing the swollen river to surround two buildings at the plant. The NRC says those buildings are designed to handle flooding up to 1014 feet above sea level. The river is at 1006.3 feet and isn't forecast to exceed 1008 feet.

The NRC says its inspectors were at the plant when the berm failed and have confirmed that the flooding has had no impact on the reactor shutdown cooling or the spent fuel pool cooling.

Flood wall fails at Fort Calhoun

Floodwaters surrounded several buildings at the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station early Sunday morning after a water-filled wall collapsed.

The plant, about 19 miles north of Omaha, remains safe, Omaha Public Power District officials said Sunday afternoon.

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission is monitoring the Missouri River at the plant, which has been shut down since early April for refueling.

The 2,000-foot berm collapsed about 1:25 a.m. Sunday due to “onsite activities,” OPPD officials said. The Aqua Dam provided supplemental flood protection and was not required under NRC regulations.

According to the NRC, the berm was eight-feet tall and 16-feet wide at the base. It was designed to provide protection for the plant's "powerblock" for up to six feet of water.

Floodwater surrounded the nuclear plant's main electrical transformers, and power was transferred to emergency diesel generators.

OPPD spokesman Jeff Hanson said the transfer was precautionary because of water leaking around the concrete berm surrounding the main transformers.

He said efforts are underway to reconnect to offsite power once all safety checks have been completed.

The floodwaters also surrounded auxiliary and containment buildings, which are designed to handle water up to 1,014 feet above sea level. The Missouri River is at 1,006.3 feet and isn't expected to exceed 1008 feet

I dont want to be a fear-monger, but when Fukushima was still being sold as a minor incident they set up a 500 mile zone around the plants, so for our purposes here, assuming a low-level radioactive incident is taking place around Omaha ( which has been given evacuation information for the flooding by Fox news ), I have extrapolated a NON-SCIENTIFIC map of a 500 mile green zone and a 200 mile red zone. Im no certified expert, so dont go sharing this map as if its something certain, but i personally would recommend to friends or family living in the red zone to leave immediately. The reason for this, is that I would not stay there.

Flood wall fails at Fort Calhoun

By Sam Womack
WORLD-HERALD STAFF WRITER

The Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station turned to diesel-powered generators Sunday after disconnecting from the main grid because of rising floodwaters.

That move came after water surrounded several buildings when a water-filled floodwall collapsed.

The plant, about 19 miles north of Omaha, remains safe, Omaha Public Power District officials said Sunday afternoon.

Sunday's event offers even more evidence that the relentlessly rising Missouri River is testing the flood worthiness of an American nuclear power plant like never before. The now-idle plant has become an island. And unlike other plants in the past, Fort Calhoun faces months of flooding.

Floodwater surrounded the nuclear plant's main electrical transformers after the Aqua Dam, a water-filled tubular levee, collapsed, and power was transferred to emergency diesel generators.

OPPD officials said the transfer was precautionary because of water leaking around the concrete berm surrounding the main transformers.

Plant operators later reconnected to off-site power once all safety checks had been completed.

Water now surrounds the auxiliary and containment buildings, which are designed to handle flooding up to 1,014 feet above sea level. The river is at 1,006.3 feet and isn't forecast to exceed 1,008 feet.

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission is monitoring the Missouri River at the plant, which has been shut down since early April for refueling. The Fort Calhoun plant will remain surrounded at least through August as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers continues dumping unprecedented amounts of water from upstream dams.

The 2,000-foot berm collapsed about 1:25 a.m. Sunday due to “onsite activities,” OPPD officials said. The Aqua Dam provided supplemental flood protection and was not required under NRC regulations.

“We put up the aqua-berm as additional protection,” said OPPD spokesman Mike Jones. “(The plant) is in the same situation it would have been in if the berm had not been added. We're still within NRC regulations.”

The NRC says its inspectors were at the plant when the berm failed and have confirmed that the flooding has had no impact on the reactor shutdown cooling or the spent fuel pool cooling.

PCTRAN
http://www.ues-egypt.com/Nuclear_Power.htm

PCTRAN is nuclear power plant simulation software specifically designed for beyond - design-basis accidents including severe accidents and intentional sabotage . Core melt, containment and spent fuel pool failures are within its scope.

The sixth generation of PCTRAN extends NPP simulation to offsite dose projection. All operational and radiological release data are accessible by onsite and remote technical support or corporate personnel. During a training or exercise session, a client may even conduct its own projections and feedback to the server end instructor or emergency control director.

Given increased concern in intentional or complicated events, PCTRAN prepares a nuclear power plant's personnel with realistic training and exercise. The web-based simulator extends to severe accidents, generates radiological release source terms and makes area dose projection according to live meteorological conditions . Its speed can be either real-time or many times faster. Operation is user-friendly in its graphical-user-interface (GUI). All graphics, text messages and data are transmitted seamlessly back and forth via existing IE Explorer.

In the plant mimic, there are icons showing simultaneous containment failure, reactor coolant boundary leak and fuel pool damage. The combined radiological releases contribute to dose distribution in EPZ. This can aid EAL determination as well as protective shielding or evacuation recommendation.

Transient Simulations

Selection of a transient is menu-driven that includes all possible disturbances to a plant such as:

•  Normal operation control - startup, shutdown, power ramp
•  Loss-of-coolant-accident (LOCA) or steamline break
•  Loss of flow, single or two-phase natural circulation
•  Turbine trip with or with bypass, station blackout
•  Steam generator tube rupture (PWR)
•  Feedwater transients
•  Anticipated transient without scram (ATWS)
•  Damage to containment or spent fuel storage facility (for example, caused by airplane crash)
•  Intentional sabotage by terrorist group to cause a reactivity event, fire or loss of diesel

•  Any combination of above

Severe Accident Model

The core is modeled into six vertical nodes. Each one will generate a portion of the decay heat. When the boundary heat removal rate is less than the core heat, the core node is heated up to the point of melting. Molten fuel may collapse into the bottom of the vessel. The vessel lower head may then heat up to the melting point, too. The molten debris may drop into the containment cavity floor. During the fuel damage process, first the fission gas in the clad may leak out. Later if the fuel and cladding continue their degradation, fuel isotopes will release also. In addition to iodine and noble gases, there are alkali metals, tellurium, barium, cerium, lanthanides, etc. The elevated concentration of these radioactive isotopes would find their ways through the vessel break, relief valves, and containment leakage into the environment.

PCTRAN is most powerful in its versatile and interactive control. The user can at any time manually trip the reactor or the pumps, open or close a relief valve, override the ECCS or change the set points for a number of the control systems. All transient parameters are available for trending during execution or printed after the run. The data can be saved in Access or Excel files for later usage. The restart capability can virtually extend a transient simulation to indefinite time period.

RMS Source Term & Area Dose Projection

Available as an option, the extended simulation model keeps track of fission product transport along the major release pathways. Normal and accident condition readings of major area, effluent, and process radiation monitors throughout the plant are displayed in a separate mimic. Iodine, noble gases and other fission products based on Regulatory Guide 1.183 Revised Source Terms are calculated periodically. Plume or puff release is then projected for variable wind speed and stability factors in the Emergency Planning Zone.

Available Plant Models

MST has completed the following models in Windows:

•  GE BWR 2 (Oyster Creek), 4 (Peach Bottom), 5 ( La Salle ), 6 (River Bend) and ABWR (Lungmen) with Mark I, II, III or advanced containment
•  Westinghouse 2-loop ( Point Beach ), 3-loop (Turkey Point) and 4-loop ( Salem ) PWR dry containment or ice condenser containment (Sequoyah)
•  Westinghouse AP1000
•  C-E PWR's of 2x4 hot/cold loops (St Lucie and Fort Calhoun ), System 80+, Korean Advanced PWR
•  B&W (now Areva) PWR's of once through steam generators (TMI)
•  Framatome PWR's ( Guangdong ) or Areva EPR 1600
•  ABB BWR's (TVO)
•  Russian VVER-440 and 1000 of horizontal steam generators
•  Westinghouse AP1000 Passive Containment Cooling System

Computer Configuration   

Any Pentium or compatible PC with SVGA graphic monitor and color printer is required. The operating system should be Windows 2000, XP or NT with MS Office Suite installed. Simulation speed is adjustable from real-time to fast time. For a 1.4 GHz processor, the maximum speed is about 16 times faster than real-time.

Free CDROM   

A full capability demonstration package is available upon request. Alternatively, a number of plant types' can be downloaded from MST's website http://www.microsimtech.com

APPLICATIONS

Training – A Training Simulator for operators and engineers training in reactor theory, transient phenomena and diagnostic skills. A comprehensive training lesson plan from basic principles to symptom oriented emergency diagnosis can be developed in conjunction with the software.

Emergency Exercise – Generate emergency drill scenarios and conduct actual exercises. Data at selected time interval can be prepared and handed out to drill team for an undisclosed event. Data on core damage, radiological release and offsite dose projection support a comprehensive exercise.

Application Analysis – Parametric/Scoping Study

ABSTRACT

The PC-based reactor simulation software PCTRAN was recently expanded to cover light water advanced reactors. The plant models include Generation III+ advanced PWR and BWR. The evolutionary designs are Areva EPR and GE ABWR by adding cooling path redundancy and devises for severe accident mitigation. One-step further is the passive-cooled Westinghouse AP1000 and GE ESBWR. Combined with PCTRAN’s models of experimental pool reactor and conventional PWR and BWR with server accident and dose dispersion capability, it forms a complete series for education in nuclear technology. The PC-based simulation system helps to train the first generation of technical staff for countries entering the nuclear era.

1. INTRODUCTION

PCTRAN is a PC-based simulation code using reduced thermal hydraulic nodes for transient prediction. Advancedtechnique significantly simplifies numerical solution process. Since its first introduction (Po 1988), it has evolved from DOS to Windows-XP environment. Operation is in standard Windows graphical-user-interface (GUI) for friendly interactive control.  For training and education of the first generation of technical staff in countries emerging into nuclear power, PCTRAN is a “live” simulation tool complementing classroom lectures. Concepts of neutron multiplication, criticality, feedback, decay heat and Xenon poisoning can be demonstrated in PCTRAN’s experimental pool reactor model. For that many of the countries have already operated for years with ample experience. Next there are conventional PWR and BWR models. In addition to normal operation of start-up, power manoeuvre and shutdown, operational transients and accidents can be simulated at a speed faster than real-time. The severe accident model allows core-melt and containment failure in the event of multiple failures of the emergency core cooling system or human error.

Anticipating second coming of nuclear era, new constructions are likely advanced models with additional core-cooling redundancy and passive devises. There are European, Russian, Japanese and Korean designs of evolutionary PWRs with improved ECCS and containment designs. The calculated core degradation frequency (CDF) is reduced by one order of magnitude (to 10-6 /year) than the conventional PWR’s. Westinghouse AP1000 (Westinghouse 2004) uses passive heat sink and natural forces to remove decay heat. On the BWR side there is General Electric/Hitachi Advanced BWR (ABWR) with reduced piping and enhanced severe accident mitigation capability. Using the same passive concept, the Economical and Simplified BWR (ESBWR) also eliminates active ECCS. Its CDF is reported down to 10-8 /year (GE/Hitachi 2005).

In this paper the experimental pool, AP1000 and ABWR are selected for presentation. In order to cover nuclear safety all the way to general public, radiological release from severe accident and offsite dose dispersion forms the integrated PCTRAN simulation system.

Since 1996 the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has selected PCTRAN as the training material in its annual Advanced Reactor Simulation Workshop (Cleveland 2006). Over the years a number of institutions all over the world have licensed various models into their curricula. As the Gulf States are in the dawn of nuclear power development, it could contribute further in the region’s education and development.

2. WINDOWS BASED SIMULATION SYSTEM

Taking advantage of 32-bit PC technology, PCTRAN is written in Microsoft Visual Basic 6. Operation follows strictly the Windows XP environment in graphic-user-interface (GUI). Data input/output are in Access database format. Selection of equipment malfunctions and accident types are from a drop-down menu. It includes all possible disturbances to a plant:

• Normal operation control – start-up, shutdown, power ramp
• Loss-of-coolant-accident (LOCA) or steam line break
• Loss of flow, single or two-phase natural circulation
• Turbine trip with or with bypass, station blackout
• Steam generator tube rupture (PWR)
• Feedwater transients (pipe break, loss of feed or loss of heating)
• Anticipated transient without scram (ATWS)

Execution is default to real-time speed. It could be accelerated to 2, 4, and 8 or up to16 times faster for long transients. All automatic and manual actions are recorded in a log text file. Transient curves can be transferred conveniently through Office Suite over a network. Online “Help” is provided that assists comprehensive user’s manual for easy instruction.

3. EXPERIMENTAL POOL REACTOR

The reactor is rated at 200 KW thermal with neutron flux at 2x1010 n/cm2/sec. It is intended for education of reactor principles, isotope production and research in irradiation. Concepts of delayed-neutron effect, multiplication factor, control by rods and boron concentration, feedback on fuel (Doppler) and moderator temperatures, criticality, xenon and samarium poisoning, etc. can be demonstrated. Delicate manoeuvre of the rods during start-up to criticality is possible. It is a powerful tool complementing classroom lectures. The database is structured to allow varying the reactor size from a few kilowatts up to megawatt range for any specific pool reactor.

4. WESTINGHOUSE AP1000

Westinghouse AP1000’s nuclear and secondary steam supply system (NSSS) is similar to a conventional PWR. The core is rated at 3400 MWt or 1000 MW electric at full power. The reactor primary coolant has two steam generators with four coolant pumps (2x4 configuration). PCTRAN’s Figure 2 right hand side control panels are for normal operation. There are rod control system, pressurizer and steam generator pressure and level controls to keep the plant at desired operating condition. The Chemical and Volume Control System (CVCC) panel is located in the lower left. It is composed of charging pumps and letdown valves for reactor coolant purity and inventory control - the same as conventional PWR.

At left there are panels for the passive emergency core cooling systems. At top there is In-Containment Refuelling Water Storage Tank (IRWST). Two Passive Residual Heat Removal (PRHR) heat exchangers are submerged in the IRWST. Three stages of Automatic Depressurization System (ADS) on top of the pressurizer are provided to relieve steam into the IRWST. The fourth-stage ADS valves are connected to the hot legs and relieve steam directly into the containment atmosphere. They are opened in sequence during a small break loss-of-coolant accident to accelerate depressurization.

Instead of an active high-pressure injection system that requires safety-graded pumps and emergency AC power supply, a passive system of Core Makeup Tanks (CMT), accumulators (ACC) and drain valves from the IRWST are provided. Their respective panels are located in the middle-left section. Depending upon extent of pressure reduction following a LOCA, CMT, ACC and IRWST drains are initiated in sequence to provide coolant makeup into the core.

For containment cooling the reactor building is designed as a Passive Cooled Containment System (PCCS). Different from conventional PWR, the containment spray is applied on the outside shell of a steel lining. The PCCS water storage tank is located at the top of the concrete structure. For a design basis scenario, it is activated in the event of high-pressure reading within the containment. It would take place if the normal heat removal (the containment fan coolers) unavailable for an extended period of time. The heat transfer is enhanced by a water film formed by gravity drain of water onto the containment shell.  The tank has sufficient water to provide three days of cooling. The atmosphere is the ultimate heat sink for the reactor system. In PCTRAN AP1000 containment mimic (Figure 3), the valve colour changes and digitally displayed flow rate indicates activation of the passive systems. The containment concrete structure with the baffle provides for natural circulation of outside air. The air enters into the gap between the concrete containment and the baffle at the top, flows down the outside of the baffle, and rises up along the steel containment vessel. The heat is thus transferred through the containment vessel to the environment.

5. GENERAL ELECTRIC ABWR

The plant model is the General Electric (GE) designed Advanced Boiling Water Reactor (ABWR) plant of 1350 MWe. The reactor uses 10 reactor internal pumps that reduce probability of external pipe break. A containment overpressure protection system is designed to mitigate consequence of a severe accident. The Standard ABWR Final Safety Analysis Report (FSAR) and Taiwan Power Company’s Fourth Nuclear Power Plant Lungmen Project was used for PCTRAN-ABWR model input.  The upper and lower drywell is modeled in the containment model. The suppression pool (wetwell) surrounds the drywell. Horizontal vents connect the two compartments. There are vacuum breakers to balance the pressures of the two compartments after a major blowdown. The nuclear steam supply system is designed in a mimic as shown in Figure 4.  PCTRAN/ABWR was used for verification and validation of Lungmen Project’s instrumentation and control system software at the Institute of Nuclear Energy Research of Taiwan (Huang 2007).

6. SEVERE ACCIDENT MODEL

A severe accident is defined as beyond design-basis with significant core damage and containment failure. A borderline is usually set in probability safety assessment (PSA) Division 2 for top of the fuel (TAF) uncovery, and Division 3 for fission product relocation. During the clad heat-up Zirconium may interact with steam to generate hydrogen and release more heat into the system.

The core is modelled into six vertical nodes. Each one will generate a portion of the decay heat. When the boundary heat removal rate is less than the core heat, the core node is heated up to the point of melting. Molten fuel may collapse into the bottom of the vessel. The vessel lower head may then heat up to the melting point, too. The molten debris may break the vessel bottom and drop into the containment cavity floor. During the fuel damage process, first the fission gas in the clad may leak out.  Later if the fuel and cladding continue their degradation, fuel isotopes will release also. In addition to iodine and noble gases, there are alkali metals, tellurium, barium, cerium, lanthanides, etc. The elevated concentration of these radioactive isotopes would find their ways through the vessel break, relief valves, and containment leakage into the environment. The molten core and metal mixture is called corium as it interacts with concrete and forms a slump. At lower temperatures, degassing of concrete occurs and steam, hydrogen and carbon dioxide can be released. At higher temperatures concrete can also be melt and mixed with metals. Since Ca, Fe, Si, Al, Na, Mg, Mn, Cr, etc. normally form concrete, the most important corium-concrete interactions (CCI) are:

Fe + CO2 -> FeO + CO + Q1
Fe + H2O-> FeO + H2 + Q2
Ni + H2O -> NiO + H2 + Q3
Zr + 2H2O -> ZrO2 + 2H2 + Q4
2 Cr + 3 H2O -> Cr 2O3 + 3 H2 + Q5

Where Q’s are reaction heat that could be either positive or negative. Each reaction rate is temperature-dependent and given by the parabolic law:

K = R5 exp (-G/T) (kg/M2)/sec, T in Kelvin

In PCTRAN they are weighted and lumped together into a single form representing progression of CCI. In the core Zr-water reaction calculation, cylindrical geometry has been used for vertical tube bundle configuration. For CCI it is instead a semi-hemisphere configuration to represent the slump pile of debris.  The top hemisphere interacts with atmosphere above, and the bottom flat surface interacts with concrete floor. A red slab represents the molten pool of concrete in Figure 6 mimic display.

7. OFFSITE DOSE DISPERSION

Having generated the release source term from a power plant, the Gaussian puff model and numerical techniques (Cheng, 2008) are utilized to calculate the radioactive effluent dispersion. During the transient simulation, puffs are sequentially generated and dispersed in all directions governed by the Pasquill stability category, wind velocity and wind direction. The thyroid dose rate and whole body dose rate (as well as their accumulations) at every spatial location in the neighbourhood are shown as a color-shaded plot (Figure 7).

The releases of radioactive materials are treated as unsteady emissions in non-homogeneous dispersion conditions. The meteorological condition can vary between Pasquill stability category A (most unstable) to F (most stable), wind speed in meters per second and release elevation from ground up to a few hundred meters. The Gaussian puff model is used to predict the time-varying dose distributions. It is more realistic than the Gaussian plume model that assumes the emission is continuous and constant in steady-state meteorological conditions. The model describes the effluent dispersion in the horizontal and vertical directions. It is two-dimensional semi-infinite sphere with elevated release. The projected dose rate and integrated dose are used for emergency activation level determination and recommendation of shielding or evacuation during an exercise (Po 2008).

8. CONCLUSION

PCTRAN family of codes form a complete teaching platform for nuclear technology. The following aspects are integrated into one simulation system:
- On Basic Reactor Concept: From reactor physics, thermal-hydraulics to plant control
- On Actual Plant Designs: From experimental pool reactor to advanced PWR and BWR
- On Plant Operations: From normal start-up, shutdown, power operation to transient and accident mitigation
- On Defence-in-depth Concept: From fuel element, reactor coolant and containment boundary to severe accident and offsite dose dispersion

Other than the generic version acquired by IAEA and taught in its workshop for the pass twelve years, various models have been licensed to universities all over the world. These include universities of Cincinnati, Georgia Tech, Lowell, Michigan, MIT, NJIT, North Texas, Rensselaer Polytechnic and Naval Academy in the US; Fukui Tech, Kobe Shosen, Kyushu, Osaka, Tokyo, Tohoku and Tokyo IT in Japan; Tsinghua (Beijing), Tsinghua (Taiwan), SJTU, XJTU, Hong Kong U and HK City U in China; Polytechnic Madrid and Polytechnic Barcelona in Spain; Sharif of Iran; King Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia; Chulalongkorn of Thailand and Sherbrooke and McMaster in Canada.

These institutions have used the executable programs and accompanied documentation as teaching aid in their reactor physics and nuclear power plant technology classes. Some of them have further acquired external sponsors’ financial support for licensing the source codes and assistance from Micro-Simulation Technology. Their faculty and graduate students have then developed advanced models and specific applications using PCTRAN’s Visual Basic platform. Over the years two PhD’s and dozens of Masters have completed their thesis. Examples are Taiwan Tsinghua’s contribution in the puff dispersion model (Cheng 2007) and a fault detection system for Lungmen Project’s (ABWR) I&C system (Huang 2007). University of Cincinnati has contributed in the severe accident model.

PCTRAN was first introduced to King Abdulaziz University via IAEA’s sponsorship in 1998. As the Gulf States are in the dawn of nuclear power construction, it could contribute further in the region’s nuclear education and development.

Since this thread is an infodump ill drop the latest webbot data update since this nuclear incident comes up.

-

Fog, and water

While examining the data sets from our most recent gathering in the effort to produce the upcoming (July 1 most probably) report, data relating to the [nuclear plants (central USofA)] emerged in 3/three different entities.

First we note this is a projection of language that *may* emerge in the mainstream media (aka propaganda press) over these next few weeks. Second we note that the data sets referenced are from the most recently gathered immediacy value sets.

The primary aspect/attribute that we have for the [flooded nuclear plants] headed by the descriptor of [fog]. This is a multiple layered context, and includes supporting sets for [fog (over knowledge)], and [fog (radioactive)], and [fog (of confusion from officialdom)], and further, [fog (of confusion (in populace) over what to do/where to go?)]. Deeper layers of detail show the [fog] becoming [so dense] as to [obscure] the [center (of the site).

More distressing is that the [fog] is described as [obscuring the details (of the restraints?)] and [limiting (the view of) the developing disaster]. Please note it is a bad sign when our data sets have such bespoke nasty words as [disaster]. Further disturbing words include [isolation], and [humilation (of attendees)], and [not good news (that must be absorbed)]. Other details include sets for [punishment] {ed note: associated with minion class, officialdom...again, not a good sign}, and [attempt (at restoring) order], and [failure (to take every precaution) at the beginning]. Again, NOT good signs for a good resolution.

Other NOT good signs include a heavy weighting of release language from the 21st through the 25th of June with a special emphasis on the Populace/USofA. Especially noteworthy is a set of data with very high emotional sums that is centered on [release (of explosive noises) over water] that will be in place in about 9/nine days.

Also please note that we are only nearing 46 per cent of the forecast [flood] language for the Populace/USofA for this Spring/Summer. Sooooo.....likely a few more [flood] related news stories will be showing up after we cross the solstice in a few days.

As this is immediacy data, and likely is manifesting as you read this, not too much more that can be said of a meaningful nature as time will very soon provide the unfolding of the next stage of the [flood] language for our edification and elucidation.

Omaha is clearly going to get the worst of it but there are a number of towns within this 200 mile area that should probably leave before floods or otherwise. That means Lincoln, Fremont, Arlington, Blair, Tekamah, Oakland, Logan, Missouri Valley, Woodbine, Blair, Onawa, Mapleton, Sloan, Sioux City, Norfolk, Stanton, Wisner, Madison, West Point, Wayne, Wakefield, Pender, David City, Stromsburg, Seward, York, Geneva, Friend, Crete, Wilber, Beatrice, Wymore, Pawnee City, Tecumseh, Auburn, Falls City, Mound City, Oregon, Sabetha, Rock Port, Tarkio, Maryville, Bedford, Clarinda, Villisca, Corning, Lenox, Mt Ayr, Creston, Griswold, Greenfield, Atlantic, Anita, Stuart, Guthrie Center, Panora, Audubon, Manning, Cooper, Jefferson, Glidden, Carrol, Dennison, Lake City, Lake View, Odebolt, Sac City, Holstein, Ida Grove, and the rest of them.

  Ekim, many of these places should be OK because they are at higher elevations UNLESS THERE IS A MELTDOWN.

Fort Calhoun Nuclear Plant: Flood Seeps Into Turbine Building At Nebraska Nuke Station

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/06/27/fort-calhoun-nuclear-flood-nebraska-plant_n_885067.html

OMAHA -- Missouri River floodwater seeped into the turbine building at a nuclear power plant near Omaha on Monday, but plant officials said the seepage was expected and posed no safety risk because the building contains no nuclear material.

An 8-foot-tall, water-filled temporary berm protecting the plant collapsed early Sunday. Vendor workers were at the plant Monday to determine whether the 2,000 foot berm can be repaired.

Omaha Public Power District spokesman Jeff Hanson said pumps were handling the problem at the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station and that "everything is secure and safe." The plant, about 20 miles north of Omaha, has been closed for refueling since April. Hanson said the berm's collapse didn't affect the shutdown or the spent fuel pool cooling.

Nuclear Regulatory Commission spokesman Victor Dricks described the situation as stable. NRC Chairman Gregory Jaczko plans to inspect the Fort Calhoun plant on Monday as part of a pre-arranged visit to Nebraska.

Hanson said OPPD fired up generators and cut the power supply after water surrounded the main electrical transformers on Sunday. The generators powered the plant until an off-site power supply was connected later in the day.

Officials said the berm wasn't critical to protecting the plant, which sits across the river from Iowa.

"There are other structures and systems in place that can ensure they will continue operating safely," Jaczko said Sunday.

The river was not expected to rise higher than the level the plant is designed to handle.

Jackzo inspected the Cooper Nuclear Station, which sits on the Missouri River about 75 miles south of Omaha, on Sunday. He asked plant officials and the NRC's local inspectors questions about the plant and this year's flooding.


The plant, which is owned by Nebraska Public Power District, remains dry because it sits at an elevation above the river and continues to operate at full capacity. The base of Cooper and its storage area for used nuclear fuel is 903 feet above sea level. The river was 900.2 feet above sea level early Monday.

Both nuclear plants issued flooding alerts earlier this month, although they were routine as the river's rise has been expected.

Flooding remains a concern all along the Missouri because of massive amounts of water the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has released from upstream reservoirs. The river is expected to rise as much as 5 to 7 feet above flood stage in much of Nebraska and Iowa and as much as 10 feet over flood stage in parts of Missouri.

The corps expects the river to remain high at least into August because of heavy spring rains in the upper Plains and substantial Rocky Mountain snowpack melting into the river basin.

10 mile evac?  Sounds quite suspect to me...could it be that is a safe perimeter for them to set up a false flag and no possibility of anyone catching them?

If anything happened at this facility, like a melt down, 10 miles is nothing, you need to be 30 miles away and not downwind of it.

Nuclear power was never the problem - the problem was in the implementation was that they had a "KILL SWITCH" connected to them.

Nuke power "could" be clean and safe - thats not what "tptb" wanted.

It's plenty clean when nuclear power plants aren't false flag cyberattacked/sabotaged by the New World Order's military industrial complex.  The only reason they are pushing solar, wind, hydro, and biomass are because those sources are perfect for energy rationing.  All of them combined could NEVER produce more than a fraction of what nuclear alone could produce.  This is also why they want the austerity "smart" grid--because they know there will be a lot less energy to go around (because the elite are deliberately destroying it, to enable total destruction of the economy, the remainder of the industrial base, and any possibility of a true recovery) so they are going to micromanage the living f*ck out of everyone unless we can stop them and utterly reject their bullshit implementations.  The elite want Americans using ZERO electricity--which should monumentally offend the hell out of anyone.  We have every right and expectation to benefit from the fruits of our labor instead of having it it stolen from us.

Btw "living off the grid" is a stupid option because do you think that the elite's surveillance system won't be able to find you anywhere on Earth?  Best to fight these bastards toe to toe instead of hole-ing up and hoping they never find you or your kids.  The only way to preserve freedom is to destroy the tyranny, at any cost.  Society has been conditioned to accept tyranny.  The elite should already have been forced to cause massive bloodshed domestically to get the level of tyranny they have already achieved.  Instead they have attained it with everyone sitting on their ass thinking everything is ok.

I disagree about the "clean" part.  There is huge radioactive waste.  Remember Yucca Mountain?  That  is just one example of one radioactive waste "dump."

Love, e
According to Dr. John Coleman, there is no such thing as nuclear waste--it has been a long contrived lie, just like Peak Oil was a monumental lie that has persisted for decades, that even many "truthers" say is a real threat today (such as Daniel Estulin).  "Nuclear waste" can be recycled and reused as nuclear fuel (France has already been doing this for some time).  And there is some process supposedly that enables the rate of decay to not take tens of thousands of years, but rather hours, or days.  The Committee of 300/Bilderberg, etc. are ANTI-nuclear power because it provides extremely abundant energy at very low cost--and it even passes muster with their fraudulent carbon output bullshit--so they had to carry out false flags against it to discredit it a different way.  3 mile island and Chernobyl were both false flag attacks against nuclear power to make people deathly afraid of it.  They were not accidents in any way.  Military drills were planned and executed before and during the Chernobyl meltdown, and 3 mile island was an emergency response drill to test FEMA's response for the elite.

Nuclear power was never the problem - the problem was in the implementation was that they had a "KILL SWITCH" connected to them.

Nuke power "could" be clean and safe - thats not what "tptb" wanted.
Absolutely correct.

Ft Calhoun Newest Photos Have Disappeared
By Dr. Tom Burnett
6-27-11
 
MSNBC apparently had a picture of the Ft. Calhoun nuclear plant taken today AFTER the 'water dam' - barely visible surrounding the reactor and main control buildings in this photo taken on June 24 - burst. But that page is now 'page not found'.
 
 I'll guess that when the aqua dam burst, the control room was flooded. They are saying "no problem, there is no danger"- but, of course, there IS a problem.
 
The REASON there is a problem and why they aren't telling the truth is because, while Fukishima is equivalent to about twenty Chernobyls, Ft. Calhoun is equivalent to about twenty Fukushimas.
Not because it has a lot of reactors - or even a very big one. But because it is holding an immense amount of nuclear fuel in its cooling pool.
 

This isn't some elevated bathtub like the cooling pools at Fukushima. Oh, no. This cooling pool is forty feet UNDER GROUND AND forty feet ABOVE GROUND. It's EIGHTY FEET DEEP IN TOTAL. If they can't cool it, the corn belt is in trouble.

The Perfect (Radiation) Storm is Brewing (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-sz9YD_3Bg5I/TgzS6GnrYiI/AAAAAAAAJv4/APkM8VMgbkk/s320/dees+radiation+cali.jpg)

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post - http://www.activistpost.com/2011/06/perfect-radiation-storm-is-brewing.html

"Ever since March 11, 2011, when the Japanese earthquake rattled the Asian country, there have been increasing numbers of strange coincidences involving nuclear power plants, natural disasters, and mismanagement of facilities. I say strange coincidences, because it now appears that nuclear power plants fall into the same category as the recent earthquakes that seem to be increasing in frequency and proximity to highly populated areas, as well as tornadoes that seem to be doing the same.

As for the Japanese situation, after months of claims by both the Japanese and American “authorities,” as well as the mainstream media that the situation in Japan was not as serious as “conspiracy theorists” were making it out to be, the Japanese Nuclear Emergency Response Headquarters has finally been forced to admit that at least three of the nuclear reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant had, indeed, melted down. Of course, these admissions came well after the mainstream media had long since stopped reporting on the Japanese crisis. But the fact that the Japanese reactors had melted down is not news to those of us who no longer follow the mainstream media. Indeed, most readers of the independent media were well aware of the nuclear meltdowns in what was virtually real time. Yet the Japanese crisis is not the only nuclear emergency that has occurred since March. Nor is it the only one to be ignored by the corporate media.

Just a week after Fukushima, I wrote an article regarding a report by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) that Canada’s Ontario Power Generation had released radioactive water into Lake Ontario via a leak in the Pickering A nuclear generating station. Like the Japanese, the Canadian government deemed this accident to be of little consequence, even though Lake Ontario is the main source of drinking water for millions of people. Ontario Power Generation (OPG) and the Canadian government even began using the term “demineralized” in place of “radioactive” when discussing the leak.

Fast forward to June and we now have three more nuclear power plants under threat from “natural” disasters. Ft. Calhoun, while receiving scant coverage by the mainstream media, is now surrounded by flood water from the Missouri river. The facility is a storage site for 20 years worth of nuclear waste material; specifically, spent fuel rods from different plants in the state as well at its own.

When asked about the safety concerns regarding the facility, Gary Gates, CEO of the Ft. Calhoun facility, said, “There is no water inside the plant. The reactor is covered with borated water. The spent fuel is covered with borated water, which we want it to be. That’s intentional. That’s where it should be. The floodwaters are outside Fort Calhoun, not inside.”

At this time, there is no concrete evidence that there has been a meltdown or radioactive leakage from the Ft. Calhoun plant. However, there are some suspicious occurrences at the facility. First, there was a fire in the switch room, but it is maintained that this fire was contained to the switch room and that it was not flood related. The fire did shut down the cooling pumps for about 90 minutes but the backup generators were quickly used to return power to the pumps. Later, one of the berms holding back the flood waters mysteriously collapsed. Unfortunately, with the weather in Nebraska still wet and nasty, levees are still being breached and dams are still overflowing. Under these conditions, a damaged berm is something that Ft. Calhoun can ill afford.

Strangely, even though the “switch room fire” occurred on June 7th, the FAA had imposed a flight ban within a two mile radius of the nuclear plant. The FAA claims the flight ban is a result of the Missouri flooding; but, as Ricky Kreitner of the Business Insider points out, “[But] the FAA ban specifically lists the Forth Calhoun Nuclear Power Plant as the location for the flight plan.”

Omaha Public Power District (OPPD) spokesman Jeff Hanson stated that the flight ban is due to power lines and “security reasons that we can’t reveal.” Of course, the real reasons for the ban are unknown, but it is highly suspect that water and power lines on the ground have prompted a ban on traffic in the air. Not only that, but the Red Cross shelter next to the Fort Calhoun facility has been closed, an odd thing to do in the event of an emergency. Particularly when the Red Cross is on location as a result of an emergency in the first place.

Regarding the Ft. Calhoun plant, Marvin Wolf, editor of Local Talk News writes:

    The government is telling us not to panic. All is under control, just like in Japan. But here are a few troubling inconsistencies. One, the Red Cross shelter next to the Fort Calhoun plant has been closed. They claim it was due to “decreased need.” During a flood? Now there is a no-fly zone around the plant. Then there is the disturbing news that the spent fuel rod pool was so full that they store the surplus fuel rods in a dry storage area outside the safety of the pool. How long will that area stay dry and what happens if it gets wet? One reporter claims the dry storage bunker is now half-submerged. One of the intake structures is prone to flooding that could affect the water pumps. Non-functional water pumps? Does that sound familiar? Wolf goes on to suggest that the Russians are claiming that there was a nuclear accident at the plant due to flooding and that the Obama administration has ordered a news blackout.

In addition to Ft. Calhoun, the Cooper Nuclear Station near Brownsville, Nebraska is also under a state of alert. Much like the Ft. Calhoun station, the Cooper Nuclear Station is under threat of being flooded out. This comes just days after two tornadoes ripped through the area.

We are also watching as a raging fire threatens the Los Alamos National Laboratory in Los Alamos, New Mexico. The fire apparently started on Saturday in the Santa Fe National Forest and is now bearing down on the town and the lab. Not only are nuclear weapons tested in the lab, but there are approximately 20,000 barrels of discarded plutonium-related nuclear waste at the facility. A fire of this level at this particular facility could unleash devastating amounts of radioactive pollution. Even a loss of power to the facility could trigger a full-fledged emergency.

Naturally, one hopes that the Japanese and Canadians manage to get control over their power plant malfunctions. One also hopes that the floods recede and the fire goes out. Yet, amid these hopes, one also begins to wonder if all this is more than just coincidence. After all, the first tell-tale signs of treachery is an attempt to cover it up. Consider the track record of the corporate media, government agencies, and private facility owners just over the last few months.

We know that after the earthquake in Japan and the subsequent damage at Fukushima, the Japanese government actively covered up the extent of the damage from the international community, the press, and the Japanese people. In fact, the media and foreign governments, particularly the United States, aided them in doing so. The US government even went so far as to discourage Americans from purchasing potassium iodide supplements to protect themselves from the radiation coming across the ocean. We also know that the Canadian government has been even more successful in covering up the pollution in Lake Ontario. So, given this reputation, one would be justified in taking anything their government says with a grain of salt.

However, it is also true that an attempt to cover up an accident, mistake, or incompetence does not necessarily mean that the individual or agency attempting the cover up actually caused the incident. Even if the cover up is of a monumental scale. But it certainly doesn’t help. And the fact that in the last few months so many nuclear facilities have come under threat from so-called natural disasters is starting to look a bit funny. After all, much of the flooding at Ft. Calhoun was caused by the government itself, in an apparent attempt to protect reservoirs.

As Wolf writes, “Keep in mind that some flooding was deliberately caused by the Army releasing water from reservoirs to protect them from failing. This has flooded levees. The Army has in the past dynamited levees to direct the water elsewhere – like where poor people live and work – to protect where rich people live and work.”

But the real question is whether or not this done as a necessity, an afterthought, or for a more sinister purpose altogether. Considering the fact that many governments now possess HAARP and similar technology that is capable of creating earthquakes, floods, and tornadoes as well as the fact that these governments rarely have the best interest of their citizens at heart, the idea of intentional destruction of nuclear facilities is not so far-fetched. It would certainly contribute to population reduction if all of this radiation combined with the Fukushima fallout and spread across the US. It would also provide an emergency situation that some would use to justify an even bigger police state and perhaps forced relocation.

It’s also interesting to note that, in the new Super 8 movie, there is a scene in which the US government deliberately sets a forest fire in order to force citizens out of the town and into military evacuation centers. In the movie, it was for the purpose of hiding secret government research. Was this predictive programming or just yet another coincidence?

Let me be clear – I’m not saying “the government did Fukushima” or “the government flooded Nebraska or set the fires in New Mexico.” But I am saying I don’t put it past them. I am saying it’s entirely physically possible. And I am saying these recent events have become a bit too coincidental to be ignored. Considering the track record, I don’t think we can afford to be naive.

Ft Calhoun Newest Photos Have Disappeared
By Dr. Tom Burnett
6-27-11
 
MSNBC apparently had a picture of the Ft. Calhoun nuclear plant taken today AFTER the 'water dam' - barely visible surrounding the reactor and main control buildings in this photo taken on June 24 - burst. But that page is now 'page not found'.
 
 I'll guess that when the aqua dam burst, the control room was flooded. They are saying "no problem, there is no danger"- but, of course, there IS a problem.
 
The REASON there is a problem and why they aren't telling the truth is because, while Fukishima is equivalent to about twenty Chernobyls, Ft. Calhoun is equivalent to about twenty Fukushimas.
Not because it has a lot of reactors - or even a very big one. But because it is holding an immense amount of nuclear fuel in its cooling pool.
 

This isn't some elevated bathtub like the cooling pools at Fukushima. Oh, no. This cooling pool is forty feet UNDER GROUND AND forty feet ABOVE GROUND. It's EIGHTY FEET DEEP IN TOTAL. If they can't cool it, the corn belt is in trouble.

Troubling to say the least, especially looking at it from St. Louis.

I agree Donnay.  On the heels of Fukushima, we are suddenly facing possible meltdown in Nebraska?  I believe, if nothing else, it is time to get rid of nuclear power, which btw is not "clean."

Love, e
you've never thought of the possibility, that this was staged and intentional?

I believe they were referring to
the tonnage of radioactive "spent"
and "un-exhausted" fuel stored there.

Well, it seems the NRC is very secretive about such stuff ...
those nasty old TERRORISTS you know.  :o

They say that 840 METRIC tons were stored in NEBRASKA (Calhoun?)
in 2010 ... that would be something over 1,000 "short"
or standard US tons. This compares to a whopping 8,440 MT
stored in Illinois!

I don't know what kind of ton the
Japanese use but here is the tonnage for the DAIICHI site:

•    Reactor No. 1: 50 tons of nuclear fuel
•    Reactor No. 2: 81 tons
•    Reactor No. 3: 88 tons
•    Reactor No. 4: 135 tons
•    Reactor No. 5: 142 tons
•    Reactor No. 6: 151 tons


So, Yep EKIM you're right ... I don't see how the author got
TWENTY TIMES DAIICHI at the CALHOUN site alone ... unless
he was taking into account the ACTIVITY of the fuel?  ???

ANYWAY ... a LOT of dangerous radioactivity in that practically
submerged plant!

Explosion at French nuclear power plant

An explosion and subsequent fire damaged a transformer of the first power unit at France’s Tricastin nuclear power plant. No injured or dead have been reported. 
The fire was put out in a matter of 20 minutes. No damage to the environment has been recorded.

Power unit 1 of the Tricastin plant was not in operation at the time of the explosion.

Updated 12:40 PM CST
In 2009, the number 2 reactor building was closed after a fire.
In December 2010, the Nuclear Safety Authority (ASN) announced it had approved an extension of "ten more years" of the operation of reactor No. 1 the plant.
Tricastin involved in uranium enrichment
At Tricastin, in southern France, a more modern diffusion plant with a capacity of 10.8 million kg SWU per year has been operating since 1979 (see photo above). This Georges Besse I plant can produce enough 3.7% enriched uranium a year to fuel some ninety 1000 MWe nuclear reactors. It will be shut down at the end of 2010 or 2012, depending on the outcome of negotiations between Areva and EdF.

The robot measured 400 rem inside the reactor which they call SUN, JUL 3, 2011 50/50 which means in half an hour u get a lethal dose and die within a week. Politicians who say nuclear energy is safe should go fix the reactor.

ABC News Says They Made An Error In Reporting Fort Calhoun Evacuation, Demands Story Be Scrubbed From Internet
Posted by Alexander Higgins - July 3, 2011 at 2:04 pm

ABC says they made an error in reporting that an evacuation zone was issued around the Fort Calhoun Nuclear power plant and have since redacted the story and they have now issued a take-down order demanding that all references to the story be removed from the internet.

After ABC news initially reported that a 10 mile mandatory evacuation zone was issued at the Fort Calhoun Nuclear plant the story was scrubbed from all online news sites.

http://blog.alexanderhiggins.com/2011/06/28/fort-calhoun-nuclear-plant-underw… (http://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=http%3A%2F%2Fblog.alexanderhiggins.com%2F2011%2F06%2F28%2Ffort-calhoun-nuclear-plant-underwater-references-10-mile-radius-evacuation-order-scrubbed-internet-news-sites-32161%2F&session_token=5X4RraNzj89fXMoIpmsL6GnINlN8MTMwOTgwMTc4MUAxMzA5NzE1Mzgx)

ABC news has since contacted me telling me they made an error in reporting the story and they redacted the story.

They have ordered that story be taken down from YouTube apparently under the impression that I posted the copyrighted video on my YouTube account which I did not.

They have also ordered that I remove the story and any references to it from Twitter and anywhere else that the story was online.

Exxon Oil Spill in Montana River Prompts Evacuations

LAUREL, Mont. –  Teams of federal and state workers fanned out Sunday along Montana's famed Yellowstone River to gauge the environmental damage from a ruptured Exxon Mobil pipeline that spewed tens of thousands of gallons of crude oil into the waterway.

The break near Billings, in south-central Montana, fouled the riverbank and forced municipalities and irrigation districts to close intakes.
...
State officials on Saturday had reported a 25-mile long slick headed downstream toward the Yellowstone's confluence with the Missouri River, just across the Montana border in North Dakota. An estimated 1,000 barrels, or 42,000 gallons, spilled Saturday before the flow from the damaged pipeline was stopped.
...
The 20-year-old pipeline was last inspected in 2009 using a robotic device that travels through the line looking for corrosion, dents or other problems, Pruessing said. Soundings to determine the pipeline's depth were taken in December, and at the time, the line appeared to be 5 to 8 feet below the riverbed, he said.

"It was completely in line with all regulatory requirements," he said.
