The NRC has created a table of “High-Value Data Sets” that we believe stakeholders would like to see. The NRC is looking for your comments on these data sets. Do they meet your needs? Do you have other suggestions? The table is located here: http://www.nrc.gov/public-involve/open/datasets-catalog.pdf.
I urge the NRC to institute stringent guidelines and monitoring for possible leakage of radioactive material from nuclear reactors. As I understand it, at the present there is NO REGULATION, only voluntary monitoring of guidelines.
I urge that this laxness on the part of the NRC be corrected immediately, and that new guidelines for contaminant levels be consistent with or exceeding those of the EPA.
Unquestionably, an enforceable GW standard... more »
This is just more fuel for those who think that the NRC is in bed with the industry it regulates, requiring little, suggesting a bit more, enforcing nothing while granting exceptions to its own safety... more »
Please provide ongoing support to consistently test groundwater near our nuclear power plants for radionuclide contamination. And non-nuclear as well.
Could Commissioner Ostendoroff correct his testimony made in the senate hearing on May 5, 2010. He stated "none of the ground water samples at any plant in the USA has exceeded 20,000 picocuries per ml."
At Vermont Yankee ground water contamination was in excess of 3 million picocuries per ml, while at Oyster Creek it was in excess of 1 million.
Now for the suggestions:
1. Scan and load old NUREGs, docket files, and the like into ADAMS. Index them five ways from Sunday on the website. This issue has been a problem for years. It can only be solved with... more »
1. make searches easier
2. backfit older documents. start with Comm and SECY. Make NUREG 0737 searchable. Then in order of importance a. add older popular NUREGS, b. add more NUREG/CR, c. add AEOD reports d.add research reports. Every IN,IB,GL should be accesable sincelicensees operational experience programs use these documents.
3. you will need to move... more »
As the search of publicly available documents is currently implemented by Google, the most frequently used documents are listed first. What the typical user is looking for the the most current information. I think a way to categorize searches by time would be very helpful.
NRC has an excellent calendar of public meetings. However, once the meetings occur they are no longer listed. NRC should maintain a chronological listing of past meetings along with the meeting notice, agenda, attendees, and meeting summaries or transcripts. This wil be much more useful than searching for them on ADAMS.
Make it clear to the public what is currently being done about nuclear waste, and what the future of nuclear waste disposal is.
Since Yucca Mountain is not open, there are no options beyond illegal overflow storage at individual facilities.
How will future facilities contribute to the waste stream?
