NRC Meeting Dec. 17 to Cover Industry Proposals to Reduce Emergency Planning Zones for Small Modular Reactors
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff will meet Wednesday, Dec. 17, to discuss proposals from the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) and the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) for a reduced emergency planning zone for small modular reactors.
The meeting will begin at 9 a.m. in Room 2B1 of the NRC’s Two White Flint building at 11555 Rockville Pike in Rockville. The meeting will discuss NEI’s proposed generic approach, as well as an expected site-specific approach by TVA as part of its Early Site Permit application for small modular reactors at the Clinch River site in Tennessee.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Three Mile Island Emergency Siren Test Scheduled for Dec. 4
Sirens to sound for three minutes at 12:15 p.m.
LONDONDERRY TWP., PA. (Dec. 2, 2014) – Exelon Generation will conduct its semi-annual, full volume test of the Three Mile Island emergency warning sirens on Thursday, Dec. 4 at 12:15 p.m. During the test the sirens will sound for three minutes.
The emergency warning siren system consists of 96 sirens located in parts of Cumberland, Dauphin, Lancaster, Lebanon and York counties that are located within a 10-mile radius of TMI. The purpose of the sirens is to alert residents to tune to an Emergency Alert Broadcast Station for information from Pennsylvania state officials. During the test the Emergency Alert Broadcast system will not be activated.
Three Mile Island Generating Station is located approximately 12 miles south of Harrisburg. The plant generates enough carbon-free electricity for 800,000 homes.

PART 21 - DEFECT IN LOCA ANALYSIS FOR B&W PLANTS
The following information was summarized from the report obtained from the vendor via facsimile:
"The defect is related to the thermal conductivity model in the codes TACO3 and GDTACO which are used in the AREVA LOCA model for B&W plants. The thermal conductivity model does not adequately represent the change in conductivity with burnup for the fuel. The correction of the thermal conductivity model results in the peak cladding temperature limit in 10 CFR 50.46 (2200 degrees F) being exceeded.
"The defect exists for the following plants: Oconee Nuclear Station Unit 1, Oconee Nuclear Station Unit 2, Oconee Nuclear Station Unit 3, Arkansas Nuclear One Unit 1, Three Mile Island Unit 1, and Davis-Besse Unit 1"
