We should consider establishing direct communication with Vince via PMT coordination. Your thoughts?

Hi Jessica,

On the 11 am call right now.

There is a periodic conference call with the Office of the Secretary of Defense, PACOM, Naval Reactors, line organizations in Japan and others. NRC has not been participating in these calls. One name that I recognize is Gregg Komp.

I believe that NSIR has had multiple contacts with Gregg and may be able to contact him directly next week for additional information. Don’t know when the next call will be. Could be as late as Tuesday, but I will let the PMT know the time and phone number when I get it from CDR East in the J44 office.

Last week’s calls were at 7:30 pm EST. If any minutes for these meetings have been issued, I will see that a copy is forwarded to PMT on Monday.

Good news. PACOM cancelled all meeting for the weekend, so I have the weekend off. Probably will not call into the consortia call tomorrow.

Hope this helps.

It is the PMT’s understanding that NISA is establishing criteria as to what liquid and solid rad-waste will be allowed to be released into municipal waste systems, and this information will become available on 04-21-2011.

Tony Huffert and the Japan Team conveyed to me on our 0300 call that they do not have any further information on the  issue but would like to know what your information source is and if you have any values on the rad criteria?
