4 Nuclear Stories This Week That Will Make You Sleep With The Lights On

  Hanford’s Toxic Mystery Gas Workers have been complaining for a long time about exposure to toxic gasses from the decaying tank farm at the Hanford nuclear site in Washington state. In the last year multiple workers had been taken to the hospital after smelling odd smells while working at the tank farm. A some workers have come forward after being so disabled and ill they could not longer work. Meanwhile DOE and the contractor that manages the work on the tank farm insisted there was no risk and that they were not liable because gas masks were available on site. A new study by a 3rd party group of experts from the Savannah River nuclear site found that there is a risk and that workers were likely exposed to toxic gasses that … Read entire article »

Fukushima US Sailor Lawsuit Upheld, Now Includes GE, Hitachi, Ebasco, Toshiba

A US court upheld the lawsuit brought by hundreds of sailors exposed to radiation as part of the response to the Fukushima Daiichi disaster. The lawsuit originally was just against TEPCO. Along with this news that the district court has upheld the suit so it can move forward, the cause now includes GE, Hitachi, Ebasco and Toshiba as defendants. The list of new defendants includes all the parties involved in the design and construction of the reactors at Fukushima Daiichi. Greenpeace had previously brought this issue up, that the designers and construction companies responsible for the failed plant should be held liable for the massive failure during the disaster.   (Press Release via Nuclear Hotseat from the … Read entire article »

Vongfong Aftermath At Fukushima Daiichi; Leaks & Rising Radiation

Vongfong passed over Fukushima Daiichi as a fairly sedate tropical storm. This didn’t leave the plant completely unscathed. We reported earlier on the spike of cesium, beta radiation and tritium at monitoring well 1-6 on the sea front. An updated TEPCO report now shows significant spikes in manganese 54 and cobolt 60 in the same groundwater well. MN54: 700Bq/L Co60: 3,600Bq/L TEPCO now states that they will sample the sea front monitoring wells daily to track what is going on. These additional readings may help determine where this plume of highly contaminated groundwater may be going. TEPCO also cited a number of rainwater leaks into the reactor and turbine buildings. These are somewhat expected due to the damaged nature of the … Read entire article »
