Any one know if they mean salt or fresh water from runoff, aquifer, sewer etc?????
I didn't see where they said it was fresh water or salt water.
One piece of fuel rods are estimated to sink into the ground 17m per year.Therefore,in 2 years from now,they may be 34m underground.

Sixty-five percent of Japanese people think that they should reduce their use of electricity even if their living standards have to be lowered in the wake of the outbreak of the crisis at the Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant, according to a recent survey conducted by the Mainichi Shimbun.
A survey of 2,413 people, conducted in an interview format by the Mainichi from Sept. 2 to 4, shows 65 percent of the respondents prefer to cut electricity use even if they have to lower their standards of living. The survey did not cover people in Iwate, Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures hit hard by the March 11 disasters. Thirty-two percent of the people polled said power supply should be increased in order to maintain their standard of living.
By gender, 60 percent of male respondents and 70 percent of female respondents said the use of electricity should be reduced even if the standards of living have to be lowered. By age groups, relatively young people tend to think the use of electricity should be cut at the expense of living standards, with 71 percent of those in their 30s and 67 percent of those in their 20s sharing such views. Of those respondents who put priority on cutting electricity consumption rather than on maintaining current living standards, 66 percent of them said the number of nuclear reactors should be gradually reduced.

When is the first expected frost for the area?
Did you get a look at the NCR executive summary I posted?
Just what kind of 'eyeballs' is AG hoping to get eyeballing him? The kind that will change things?
Gundersen expresses concerns that the nuclear industry and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission are not addressing major safety issues that have become evident since Fukushima. These issues include serious design flaws in the BWR Mark 1 containment, fundamental flaws in the Boiling Water Reactor vessel design, and problems with detonation shockwaves. The NRC and the nuclear industry are using a flawed cost benefit computer code that underestimates the value of human life and minimize property damages after an accident, which has the effect of justifying continued operation of reactors without safety modifications.
Wertwog. Who exactly is it you think AG should be 'moderately approaching' at this point? If a section of the industry as you say, thinks he is a joke, then they are hardly likely to buy whatever he is "selling", are they?
The general public has zero awareness of the huge number of accidents that occur at power planets every year, and these governmental agencies prefer it that way because an uninformed public allows them to continue doing what they do.
Three years have passed since the fire and explosion at the Japan Nuclear Cycle Development Institute (JNC)'s bituminization facility at the reprocessing plant in Tokai-mura, Ibaraki Prefecture. Ibaraki… Before giving the green light, the Prefecture consulted the Ibaraki Nuclear Council, and the Council had a meeting for the first time in 5 years… Obviously they had already made up their minds to recommend the re-start even before having these token meetings.
Our group, the Ibaraki Action Coalition Against Nuclear Power, pointed out to the Council problems associated with the aging of the Plant… We also…demanded that the Council dissolve immediately if it could not clarify its obligation. However, the Council ignored our requests and approved the re-start of the plant.
We immediately submitted a request to the governor and asked for a written response… We also asked if the Prefectural government had reflected on the JCO accident, and demanded that it conduct an environmental impact assessment for the reprocessing plant, which creates 500 times more radiation than a standard nuclear power plant. We also pointed out JNC's continuing habits of secrecy, and its unfair treatment of subcontractors who are given the most hazardous work.
One drug supplier says it has sold 250,000 anti-radiation pills to people in the U.S. concerned about possible exposure from Japanese nuclear reactors.
