Hi Bill,

We are not authorized to share the results of the measurements from SONGS and Diablo Canyon. These results belong to the plants; NRC is not in a position to share with the State/Counties.

Also, as a note, DOE has been designated the lead agency for communicating information to the States regarding monitoring of radiation heading toward or over the United States. DOE’s Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (National Atmospheric Release Assessment Center) is monitoring weather patterns over the Pacific Ocean. The EPA maintains air monitoring stations throughout the country and has reinforced its monitoring effort. DOE will provide aerial monitoring.

I hope this provides the clarification that you were seeking.

Thanks,
Cindy Flannery

Here is Diablo Canyon results from Friday evening. I am hoping to get NRC response team approval to share with CA and CA Counties on the next CA Statewide Conference Call.

Th’X Mark, We were also wondering if you notified any State Officials.

Louis,

We pulled the charcoal and filter from one of our samplers at the front gate placed to monitor this event.

That sample is about 6 miles from the plant site as you of course know.

It showed 3.779 E-13 micro-Ci/cc 1-131.

There were no particulates.

We notified Headquarters – Protective Measures team as requested.
