They build them by water so they can cool the rods with river water. Now consider that there are 15 nuke plants along the Mississippi River to add to the equation with flooding by them too. YUP! Have a nice day! Seriously, to everyone involved in this disaster stay safe and I will be praying for all of you!

Thank goodness someone is actually talking about this. I live within 20 miles of the Ft. Calhoun Nuclear Power Plant and 3 miles from the Missouri River. I've posted several times about this but the threads did the POOF thing. We have Blackhawk helicopters in the sky. We have the National Guard in our neighborhoods. Thousands of people are evacuating their homes until possibly next January. We have millions of acres of crops underwater. Council Bluffs, IA has just issued a Level 1 alert which means prepare to evacuate.
The tornado sirens will sound and evacuation is mandatory. No one seems to care. Why?

Hi! Maybe this thread won't go POOF as yours did!

What a sad state of affairs that we have to come to ATS, which is supposed to entertain us with theories concerning wild flights of logical fantasy to get ANY REAL NEWS.

What kind of citizenry will it create when real news like this is only found by searching sites like ATS?

Thank you all for what you bring to us here, it is very appreciated!

I only hope we're just going through a bad spell, and eventually we'll get news on our news channels, shows and websites again...

I do enough research to know that the plants in Nebraska are 750 miles from the Fort Peck Dam. This after numerous turns, including one from east to south, in North Dakota. I'd be surprised to see much more than a rise of a few feet at the Nebraska plants.


Obviously, you do not do enough research. I live near Ft. Calhoun, NE. The water rose a few feet weeks ago and will continue to rise. Those who have evacuated already have been told that they should not expect to return to their homes (return to what?) until at least next winter. You need to retake Research 101.

Can you provide some links or something in regards to the level 1 status in Council Bluffs? I'm in Des Moines and have family out that way. We would be in the path of any radiation, etc if something did happen.

Anything you can provide is much appreciated.

Bless you and good luck to you in case something goes down.

Yes... Glasgow, Montana. Google is our friend. My comment was for the dude who said Glasgow, Ireland. That's about as bizarre as saying London, Wales.

I lived in great falls Montana for 18 months, about a month ago I returned to Texas, anyhow while there we went to fort peck lake/reservoir, I do not dispute the fact it was built shauty, but I question what damage could occur if it did breach. All lands south, which is the direction it would flow is literally ran h land, and farmland. Yes this would strain an already strained food system, but as for population, the nearest southern city would be billings some 400 plus miles south, there are far to many high mountains in-between. Not downplaying this just noting anyone east or west of this reservoir should be safe, especially Illinois,Indiana,ya...

Here is a visual representation (pg 3) from the US Army Corp Daily updates;

USACE Update 6-23-11

The reservoirs are to scale and represent the relative size of the total flood control storage (annual + exclusive) at the six Missouri River main stem projects.

Here are some quick facts to note;
Fort Peck holds 20% of the total water of all the dams combined.
Fort Peck has 3,675,000 Acre-feet of water.
An acre-foot is the amount of water needed to cover and entire acre under a foot of water.
That is equal to 1,197,503,994,225 gallons of water in Fort peck.
Yes One point two Trillion Gallons.


Conversion

IF… the dam were to give way it would be the largest disaster we in the US have ever seen. Every dam, and every city, and every town on the Missouri would face the unthinkable.

I have already been evacuated from my place of business, and have stood on the levy’s myself over the last two weeks and have watched an ocean of water fill the levy’s to within 2 feet of cresting, and we have not seen the new increases yet this week. The levy's were build to hold the water back for around 18 days. They are going to be like this until October. This is going to be a long tense summer.

My ability to research is not in question here... I know all about the flooding in Nebraska, but a rise in water level does not equal a nuclear disaster. The Fort Calhoun plant is well-protected from the floodwaters - yes, it is surrounded by water, but, you'll notice, it's surrounded, not flooded, and it can withstand even higher water levels (in fact, they're expecting the water to keep rising). Besides, the plant has been safely shutdown, with enough fuel to keep the backup generators running if they're needed. In the event that cooling to the spent fuel rods is unable to be continued, they can last more than 3 days before they begin boiling off the water (and even longer before they begin melting).

It wasn't a bright idea to build these nuclear power plants on a major river in the first place, but a dam break in Montana will have very little impact on nuclear power plants in Nebraska. Even the increased flooding would be slow in coming and easily prepared-for.

I said it yesterday, and I will probably end up saying it again... the failure of the Fort Peck dam would be disastrous enough, it doesn't need to be hyped to "Biblical proportions" by throwing in a nuclear disaster and the obliteration of the entire central US.
But, then, we do like to exaggerate the possibilities, don't we?

Seems like an honest mistake, reminds me of my visit to London (the one in England).
I met two girls down at the pub one night night who had strong Cardiff accents.
I said, "I know that accent. You two ladies are from Scotland, aren't you?"
"Wales, you idiot," one of them replied.
"Sorry," I said, "You two whales are from Scotland, aren't you?"

Nuclear Power plants are built next to water on purpose.

They need a constant supply of water to keep things cool.

It is not 'bad planning' to put them on a body of water.

The bad planning came when we chose to fund them in the first place.

We are just now seeing the record snowpack in the Fort Peck watershed area begin to melt.

By the time September gets here, it will still be melting.

If the dam is already over crest level, it is inevitable that a major dam break is imminent...

Good luck to all...

You have to build them like that or its going to cost you more than its worth.

Strange that there is no mention of SD on the FEMA daily update.
Sorry about the big post, but there are many places on the river in trouble.
I'll see what I can find on SD. BRB.

Souris River Flooding – Minot, ND
Current Situation

Minot, ND
Several levees overtopping and 10,000-12,000 residents in the original evacuation zones 1–9 were instructed to evacuate immediately after flood sirens activated yesterday morning. The City of Burlington (population 1,060) in Ward County also mandatorily evacuated residents. The Trinity Nursing Home was evacuated and patients were relocated to other facilities.

There are 2 shelters (1 in Minot, 1 in Burlington) open with 52 occupants in Minot/0 occupants in Burlington; 3 additional shelters are identified and on stand-by. Evacuated residents will not be allowed to return home until the Souris River falls below high risk levels – estimated time frame is in excess of 30 days. The Broadway Bridge may close; will cut off north side of city from south. Risk to Minot water system is due to flooding of source wells and water treatment plant; these infrastructure sites are being protected.
The combination of spring snowmelt and recent rainfall events has resulted in unseasonable high runoff at many locations throughout the Missouri River Basin. The weather forecast during the next 1 to 3 days shows a potential for over 1.3 inches of rain near the northwestern area of Missouri and southwest region of Iowa which may drain into the Missouri River Basin.

Nebraska:
The Missouri River at Rulo went above record flood stage this morning and is currently at 26.65 feet. This location is expected to crest at 26.8 feet early morning on June 23 and maintain near record levels through early next week. Historically, Federal levees at this location are nearly overtopped at 27 feet.

Missouri:
Over the past several days, there have been numerous levee breaches due to high reservoir and dam releases combined with heavy rainfall. During the evening hours of June 21, two agricultural levee breaches were reported by the Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC). The breaches were north of Big Lake near the intersection of M-111 and M-118. Local emergency managers and the National Guard went door-to-door informing residences in the town of Bigelow (pop. 35) of possible imminent flooding due to the breaches. There has been no additional reporting on this event since Tuesday night.

In Holt County, the Towns of Bigelow and Fortescue have evacuated. Corning is flooded with 8 feet of water due to a breach of the Mill Creek Levee located at the mouth of Mill Creek and Missouri River; evacuation is complete; approximately 20 homes (75 persons) are affected. There was a breach on the eastern side of the Big Tarkio and on a private levee. Water infrastructure is protected at this time. A 4 foot earthen levee is being constructed to protect the water treatment plant in Craig. A levee breach has occurred along Cannon Creek Levee. USACE is allowing flow into a nature reserve to relieve pressure; no communities affected. Holt County Levee #9 is expected to overtop this weekend. The levee protects farmland only; no communities will be affected.

In Atchison County, Levee 550 at mile marker 535.5 (near US-136) is overtopping along a 20-30 foot span. USACE and the County Emergency Management Department predict the levee will fail at any time.

In Platte County, sandbagging operations are continuing for levees 408 and 400 Levees. The levees are expected to overtop this weekend:

In Buchanan County, inmates have sandbagged around the Lewis and Clark Lake. USACE has completed two relief wells at Lake Contrary and will drill four additional relief wells. The county is working on evacuation plans. The levee around the airport has been reinforced.

There are two shelters open; one in Atchison County (Methodist Church in Rock Port) with no occupants, and one in Holt County (Christian Church in Mound City) with two occupants. There are 38 roads statewide that are closed due to flooding.

Iowa:
Gavins Point:
Current releases of 155,000 CFS and are projected to increase to approximately 160,000 CFS today. These high releases are expected to continue through at least mid August. This will result in an increase in river stages: Sioux City, IA from 0.7 to 1 foot; Omaha to Rulo, NE to 0.3 to 0.4 of a foot; St. Joseph, MO roughly 0.6 foot; Kansas City, the rise will be roughly 0.7 foot.

Rulo (Nebraska) - The river went above record flood stage yesterday morning and is expected to crest at 26.8’ early tomorrow morning and maintain near the record levels through early next week. Historically, Federal levees at this location are nearly overtopped at 27’. There is one shelter open in Missouri Valley (Harrison County) and seven shelters on stand-by. There are several road closures that remain in effect.
