UNITED STATES NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION
ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON REACTOR SAFEGUARDS

WASHINGTON, DC 20555 – 0001

July 20, 2011

MEMORANDUM TO: R. W. Borchardt
Executive Director for Operations
FROM: Edwin M. Hackett, Executive Director /RA/
Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards
SUBJECT: INFORMATION REQUESTED DURING THE APRIL 7, 2011, ACRS MEETING

On April 7, 2011, the NRC staff briefed the Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards (ACRS) on the recent events at the Fukushima reactor site in Japan. In response to questions raised by ACRS members during this meeting, the staff committed to provide the Committee with additional information regarding the 50-mile evacuation zone recommendation.

We are aware that the June 17, 2011, letter from Chairman Jaczko to Senator Webb addressed some of the questions. The ACRS requests that the staff identify any information from the June 17, 2011,  letter that is responsive to questions raised by the members during the April 7, 2011, ACRS meeting and provide these responses to the ACRS in writing.

In addition, the ACRS requests a written response to questions raised at the April 7, 2011, meeting that were not addressed in the June 17 letter.

We have reviewed the April 7, 2011, meeting transcripts for questions related to the 50-mile evacuation zone and compared these questions with the responses provided in the June 17 letter. We have attached our evaluation for your information.
