It's good to see that NRC Commission meetings are available on the website. I wish that I could also watch live online video from public meetings in other locations where it's not convenient to attend.
Also all Generic Communications (GCs) should be made searchable by the NRC public web page for GC's - after about 2007 the agency stopped posting the pdf file versions to our webpage generally, instead they startedlinking the GC's by ML number into ADAMS. This had the unintended... more »
This would have the benefit of the public being able to quickly search plants in their area or plants of interest with regards to NRC inspection findings. It would also allow groups such as the Union of Concerned Scientist (UCS) and Institute of Nuclear Power Operations (INPO) and individual licensees to do these searches... more »
Currently, some of NRR's Office Instruction's (01's) are publicly available. However, some are non-publicly available. Since the OI's describe activities involving NRR's stakeholders, including the public, all of them should be made publicly available.
Note, some of the OI's that are currently non-publicly available, were previously publicly available.... more »
I would like to see the NRC publish the Daily Event Notifications in a map format, similar to the Google Maps mash-up employed by EPA (http://www.epa.gov/compliance/resources/reports/endofyear/eoy2009/2009-mapallactions.html). This form of viewing events would be particularly beneficial to a concerned public and would hopefully facilitate better understanding... more »
The U.S. NRC needs to go a very long way to comply with the White House initiative on open government. ADAMS access is abysmal. Even if documents are there, unless one is working at NRC Head Quarters, documents cannot be easily accessed with an adequate indexing system to make locating desired documents feasible. I was lucky enough to get a consultant at... more »
Would it be possible for the NRC to share the database of all the environmental data results collected each year surrounding nuclear reactor sites? The database might include sample results from nuclear utilities, state oversight programs and the NRC. This would also address the openness concern raised some years ago in Illinois concerning the tritium releases... more »
All baseline data, past and current licensing basis data, licensing amendment, violations, corrective actions, exemption determinations, and any determinations not to make such data, documents, reports and materials available to the public should be available on-line at a single mouse click in a location that is accessible and easily navigated by a 6th grader.... more »
The agency needs to review all past determinations concerning which documents should be public and get them on-line and available. I have complained numerous times to persons working at the highest levels of the NRC and the IG concerning the unavailability of certain document that should not have been classified "non public" -- e.g., a transcript of a telephone... more »
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.
Please provide ongoing support to consistently test groundwater near our nuclear power plants for radionuclide contamination. And non-nuclear as well.
There is a huge frustration quotient with searching NRC documents.... more »
