In this paper yesterday the NRC said, "We have never shut a plant down because of radiation".

Per Wayne Leonard's comments - yes it IS how Entergy operates

This is classic. Everyone but Entergy is concerned about inaccuracies. The people in the Department of Health need to have accurate information to deal with safety and health issues. The Department of Public Service people need to have accurate information to plan the future of the Vermont electric grid. The voters and their representatives need access to accurate information to take reasonable positions. The attorney general is concerned about perjury and conspiracy. Entergy's CEO, Leonard, "gets it," and will deal with "inconsistencies." This is like saying, "We will try hard to make our misinformation more convincing next time."

They never shut one down for intergrity issues either, that is not defined in risk based regulation.

Okay, great, thanks for the story, but, um, WHAT'S THE STATUS OF THE LEAKS? Why hasn't there been a public outreach initiative by the state that explains what's happening, every day, to contain this leak? Is wanting to have basic information so unreasonable a request. Good lord, the government is its own worst enemy. Or our own worst enemy, if they don't at least insist that Entergy explain every day what it's doing to fix this--tritium, not testimony.

Also, why isn't the Reformer demanding to know the status of the contamination? Are we just supposed to believe that it's been contained? Is it getting worse? Where's the basic investigative reporting that would be, literally, in the public's interest??

The MisInformmer does not want you to know the status of the leaks because the facts are boring. If you took the time to find news from an independent source, i.e. the Dept. of Health and possibly learned a little bit about radiation( http://www.healthvermont.gov/enviro/rad/Radia... ), the facts may reduce your concerns and this damn paper wouldn't have an audience.

I’d just like to know what water system has more than 2.1 million picocuries of tritium per liter? You notice how they have disclosed that. Name the system that have in excess of 2.1 million picocuries per liter.
