Exelon Nuclear is launching an initiative across its 10-station nuclear fleet to
systematically assess systems that handle tritium
and take the necessary actions to
minimize the risk of inadvertent discharge of tritium to the environment. The assessments
will take place in 2006 and will cover pipes, pumps, valves, tanks and other pieces of
equipment that carry tritiated water in and around the plants. The initiative is intended to
significantly reduce the possibility of a tritium release of the type that occurred in the past
involving the lake “blowdown” line at Braidwood Generating Station. The initiative also
will establish new standards for inspections, responses to, and remediation of tritium
that have the potential to affect the environment or the public. Press release:

The European Commission has issued a formal warning against British Nuclear
Group Sellafield
. Under the Euratom Treaty, the European Commission has the task of
ensuring that accounting and administrative procedures are in place to ensure that nuclear
materials in possession of companies operating nuclear facilities in the EU are not
diverted from the peaceful uses for which they have been declared. The Commission has
found that the accounting and reporting procedures presently in place at BNG SL do not
fully meet Euratom standards. This decision results from a series of inspections carried
out by Commission inspectors at the Sellafield plant.
