Do you mean these
Many containers of fuel to power pumps were
washed away after breach at Ft. Calhoun nuke plant
Event Number: 46989
Facility: FORT CALHOUN
Event Date: 06/26/2011
Event Time: 10:45 [CDT]
OFFSITE NOTIFICATION DUE TO PETROLEUM RELEASE TO THE MISSOURI RIVER
“At approximately 0125 CDT, the AquaDam providing enhanced flood protection for Fort Calhoun Station Unit 1 failed. This resulted in
[color=limegreen]approximately 100 gallons of petroleum being released into the river after a protective barrier was breached and
many fuel containers were washed out to the river. The fuel/oil containers were staged around the facility to supply fuel for
pumps which remove water within the flood containment barriers. The spill was reported to the State of Nebraska at 10:45 AM CDT on 6/26/2011.
What were these fuel containers that only 100 gallons were contained in "many?"
Were they those red plastic 5-gallon containers and were just sitting next to the pumps when the water came in?
How much water does it take to float one of these puppies over the "containment barrier" into the river? (Let's see... gas about 6.1 lbs/gal x 5 =
about 30.5 lbs to float away - about 35 lbs if it was 5 gallons of diesel.)
What happened to "being prepared for any eventuality?"

‘Event’ reported at Ft. Calhoun nuke plant: 'Potential flooding issue in the Intake Structure'
— “There is one penetration of concern” that could impact water pumps
Operations identified a potential flooding issue in the Intake Structure 1007 ft. 6 in. level. The area of concern is a the hole in
the floor at the 1007 ft. 6 in. level where the relief valve from FP-1A discharge pipe goes through the raw pump bay and discharges into the
intake cell. There is one penetration of concern. [color=limegreen]Flooding through this penetration could have impacted the ability of the
station’s Raw Water (RW) pumps to perform their design accident mitigation functions.
Efforts are in progress to seal the penetration.(...)
Again with the cooling pumps... and that was ten (10) days ago.

Licensee Event Report 2011-003, Revision 1, for the Fort Calhoun Station, NRC, May 16,
As a result of a Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) inspection conducted from January 1 to June 21, 2010, the NRC determined that Fort Calhoun
Station (FCS) did not have adequate procedures to protect the intake structure and auxiliary building against external flooding
As a result of the penetrations not being sealed, the intake structure was vulnerable to water inflow during an extreme flooding event. This
[color=limegreen]inflow had the potential to affect the operability of both trains of safety related raw water pumps (ultimate heat
On February 4, 2011, an eight (8) hour report was made under 10 CFR 50.72 (b)(3)(v)(D) to the NRC Headquarters Operation
Office (HOO) at 1717 CST (Event Number (EN) 46594). [color=limegreen]The report should have been made on September 9, 2009.
Only five (5) months later. It almost seem as though this facility is being run by the inmates - or there is a complete lack of pride in work across
the board - nobody gives a damn and the peeps are there only to get a paycheck. That lackluster attitude might work in a car wash, but this is a
An interesting document:
NRC FORM 366A (10-2010)
During identification and evaluation of flood barriers, unsealed through-wall penetrations in the outside wall of the intake, auxiliary
and chemistry and radiation protection buildings were identified that are below the licensing basis flood elevation.
A summary of the root causes included:
1) a weak procedure revision process;
2) insufficient oversight of work activities associated with external flood matters;
3) ineffective identification, evaluation and resolution of performance deficiencies related to external flooding;
4) and "safe as is” mindsets [color=limegreen]relative to external flooding events.
The [color=limegreen]Fort Calhoun Station is required to be protected from flooding within the station’s licensing basis. The safety-related
equipment required to mitigate the consequences of an accident were affected by these findings.
The openings could have jeopardized the ability of the safety-related equipment to perform their design basis function during an accident.
Other methods of removing decay heat and mitigating the consequences of a flooding event were available.
Interesting... so the NRC indicates that there are other methods of removing decay heat.
Just what are these "other methods" that do not involve pumps powered by electricity?
And why are they not being used in Fukushima in any way?
Other headlines to peruse, if one so chooses:
27 June 2011
100% chance of reactor core damage if floodwaters went above 1010 ft. at Ft. Calhoun nuke plant, NRC said in 2010
— River now around 1,007 ft. and expected to rise
is a fearmonger headline... hmmmmmmmmm...
Another false flag to divert attention from what's really happening?
This to divert attention from:
1) The radiation that is now threatening to harm every living thing in the United States forever.
2) The dams upriver as far as Montana from Fort Calhoun Nuclear Plant and Cooper Nuclear Plant about to flood.
3) The dumping of millions and millions of gallons of highly-radiated water into the Pacific Ocean by TEPCO in Japan.
4) The report of contamination 7.5 million times the legal limit in Fukushima area - and that is only what they are admitting to.
5) The fact that [color=limegreen]all the foodstuffs in the fields in North America are being radiated on a daily basis
hours a day
- and there is no end in sight!
6) The fact that virtually all of the land-based food and now the sea food has been radiated to some degree in Japan.
7) The fact that an area the size of Manhattan (about 17% of Japan) is now uninhabitable because of elevated radiation levels.
I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!
There is no safe level of radionuclide exposure, whether from food, water or other sources.
Exposure to radionuclides, such as iodine-131 and cesium-137, increases the incidence of cancer. For this reason, every effort must be taken to
minimize the radionuclide content in food and water.

Thank you for your time and consideration and we look forward to further communication and possible collaboration.
These challenges to life and sanity on this planet must be met with clear minds and sound hearts - onward through the fog!

The United States will be destroyed, land and people, by atomic bombs and radioactivity. Only the Hopis and
their homeland will be preserved as an oasis to which refugees will flee. Bomb shelters are a fallacy. It is only materialistic people who
seek to make shelters. Those who are at peace in their hearts already are in the great shelter of life. There is no shelter for evil.
Those who take no part in the making of world division by ideology are ready to resume life in another world, be they Black, White, Red, or Yellow
race. They are all one, brothers.
The True White Brother will bring with him two great, intelligent and powerful helpers, one of whom will have a sign of a swastika (a masculine symbol
of purity), and the sign of the sun. The second great helper will have the sign of a celtic cross with red lines (representing female life blood)
between the arms of the cross.
[color=limegreen]When the Great Purification is near, these helpers will shake the earth first for a short time in preparation. After they shake the
earth two times more, they will be joined by the True White Brother, who will become one with them and bring the Purification Day to the
world. All three will help the "younger brother" (the Hopi and other pure-hearted people) to make a better world. In the prophecies, the two helpers
are designated by the Hopi word for "population," as if they were large groups of people.
The True White Brother and his helpers will show the people of earth a great new life plan that will lead to everlasting life. The earth will become
new and beautiful again, with an abundance of life and food. Those who are saved will share everything equally. All races will intermarry and speak
one tongue and be a family.
"And this is the Ninth and Last Sign: You will hear of a dwelling-place in the heavens, above the earth, that shall fall with a great crash. It
will appear as a blue star. Very soon after this, the ceremonies of my people will cease."
The signs are interpreted as follows:
The First Sign is of guns.
The Second Sign is of the pioneers' covered wagons.
The Third Sign is of longhorn cattle. The Fourth Sign describes the railroad tracks.
The Fifth Sign is a clear image of our electric power and telephone lines.
The Sixth Sign describes concrete highways and their mirage-producing effects.
The Seventh Sign foretells of oil spills in the ocean.
The Eighth Sign clearly indicates the "Hippy Movement" of the 1960s.
The Ninth Sign was the U.S. Space Station Skylab, which fell to Earth in 1979.
According to Australian eye-witnesses, it appeared to be burning blue.
The Hopi also predicted that when the "heart" of the Hopi land trust is dug up, great disturbances will develop in the balance of
nature, for the [color=limegreen]Hopi holy land is the microcosmic image of the entire planet; any violations of nature
in the Four Corners region will be reflected and amplified all over the Earth.
