Brunswick Nuclear Power Station’s “Cliff Edge” Barriers Appear To Fall Almost 8 Feet Short Of Required Storm Surge Protection Level

Mining Awareness +


The US Nuclear Regulatory Commission NTTF [Near Term Task Force] observed that, “some [nuclear] plants have an overreliance on operator actions and temporary flood mitigation measures such as using sandbags, temporary flood walls and barriers, and portable equipment to perform safety functions.” The NTTF report also states that, “the Task Force has concluded that flooding risks are of concern due to a „cliff-edge‟ effect, in that the safely consequences of a flooding event may increase sharply with a small increase in the flooding level. Therefore, it would be very beneficial to safety for all licensees to confirm that structures, systems, and components (SSCs) important to safely are adequately protected from floods.” [1]

The NRC describes Brunswick Nuclear Power Station’s interim solution to flooding: “the licensee planned to install metal “Cliff Edge Barriers” at targeted areas on site. These barriers are installed 1 to 3 days prior to…

  1. Took 10 years of letter writing, to even get started, removing a nuclear waste pile by our town. It has to be done meticulously and cleanly because of the radionuclide material.

    Corporation that made the mess, purposely went bankrupt to avoid paying for the cleanup.100s of millions of dollars. 15 years in, half done. Does anyone seriously believe, that any of the shithead corporations that run reactors and the huge hi-level waste pools, will close them and cleanup properly? Look at what the evil fukers have done at San Onofre.

    Does anyone seriously believe, that anything other than a huge concerted, monumental, effort can properly cleanup, any one, of the 400 nasty reactors and 40 yrs of hi-level nuclear waste stored by them?

    When civilization goes down, i do not want to be alive in the radionuclide tsunami that will accompany fuel pools on fire and hundreds or thousands huge nuclear waste sites smoldering burning and or exploding. The northern hemisphere, IS SO CONTAMINATED AS IT IS. It is contaminated with the worst chemicals! It is contaminated by massive amounts of lesser radionuclides that saturate aquifers, city dumps with americium, the cities themselves, country and industrial landscapes of nucleoape civilizations.
    Perhaps it will be a quick death. Maybe a 5 day acute radiation poisoning where all of your hair falls out . Where you bleed out of every pore in your body. I would not bet on it though.

    1. The nukepro is an operative for Trump. Trump and its ilk, are funding old reactors staying opened. They are deregulating old reactors, so that these hurricanes can and will cause meltdowns like fukushima. So that there will be no hope. How awful.

      Trump is close to Abe. Abe is opening dangerous reactors in Japan in the wake of fukushima.

      These people are so strange.

      1. Nukepro owner is pro Trump, but the site largely posts things that are anti nuclear. Trump is supporting Abe who is wanting to open many more nuclear reactors and rewrite the constitution to allow nuclear weapons and first strike military. It is up to voters to rise up and reject all of this and politicians who propose this insanity. Just a distinction… but they make all of the difference.

      2. well, thanks fro your input, but Nuke Pro is nobody’s tool. He definitely isn’t for any new or old reactors staying open.

  2. You know that is a lie. It has polling, to encourage nuclearist pro-trump politics, on its site. It threatens people on the internet, especially antinuclear advocates. It calls antinuclear advocates social justice warriors, derisively. It lies about Trump deregulating, and closing Nuclear Plants. It thinks america will survive nuclear meltdowns. It does not support banning nuclear weapons, like most countries do.
    It supports leaving nuclear reactors open. Why lie? Abe is destroying Japan. He is shipping radioactive food, all over the world. Some of it is coming to America. Trump says nothing.

    1. Yes, that site does run polls, but that is not ‘lies’. If you know of any threats, please post links of that, as this is illegal. If site is posting lies about deregulation and closing plants, please post links. Please link to individual items in rest of list.. educate us. Thanks for comment.

  3. I do not understand why you would refer anyone to that nasty, vicious, lying, sociopathic, greedy, propagandist, racists website after the way it bullied and treated you and so many, so badly at enenews . Remember all the people on enenews that passed and were sick. Onto. Greg. Teri. One of the original mp ladies. That guy disrespected so many of us who have been through hell! Told some of us, and its minions gleefully we would die soon. What an evil bastard! And you defend it and refer people to its website! It is even now all in w the the orange haired nuclearist creep that is bombing yemen, and syria. That is making reactors less safe. Spending trillions on.erik prince. Cutting people off medical carea.
    The creep at the website talks shit about people of color. How can u in good conscience have anything to do w the creep

    1. AGR does not claim to be ‘pure’ and ‘holy’. AGR is about building bridges, even with those who hold opposite views. What we can both agree on across the divide is worth much more than what one side sees, but the other side opposes completely and absolutely. That is the essence of Congress, Senate and White House; compromise and meeting in the middle.

  4. Under jimmy carter humdreds of thousands took to the streets to protest nuclear. It is even worse now. Especially since what we have seen in fukushima. The cointel libertarian conspiracy nuts, and koch things that are really pronuclear (climate denial, procoal, racist) do not even believe in protest. They support thiw nuclearist neoconservative ass. How can u advertise it?

  5. The chief troll at enenews, said it hired a private security co to stalk the owner of enenews. It also called the owner a pedophile. After that point, there were no more posts by the owner of enenews. If hiring private goons, to stalk people over not enough moderation of a website, is not threatening and vicious , i do not know what is.

    I would never go to certain websites, after that . I do not go to enenews, because posters or ringers, or whatever they are seem to be linked by email or a network. They troll people. CLAMSHELLERNH A REAL ANTINUCLEAR Advocate, pointed this out and quit enenews. The fake poster, that post on the dead website, pretend to be one way, and then post links to white supremacist websites. That is beyond right-wing.
