UPDATE from 10:00 Telecon on Fukushima Daiichi Events JapanEarthquakeResponse_04042011_0600.ppt; fukushima-areva.pdf; 2017 Japan Hypothetical Models.pdf

Wiggiins led the call Ew No change in status of Unit 1, 2, or 3 or the SFPs. Fresh water motor driven pumps now being powered by external offsite power (taken of diesel powered generators). Ew RST priority still focused on Unit 1 containment venting. Noted that nitrogen purge capability may be feasible before the previously reported April 9 timeframe. El Japanese disagree with NRC recommendation to flood the primary containments. Ew DOE contractors with severe accident analysis backgrounds showed up at US Embassy in Japan. These folks were not asked for by the NRC or the US Embassy so Casto had to intercede and define roles. DOE contractors now under NRC in-country team direction. w1 CDC person to report today to NRC. NRC did not request but is receptive to host CDC representative. Ew Stated that NRC's role continuing as coordinating logistics request but still looking for some other organization to take this role. Other items outside of telecon: El Attached is a DOE Status Report (reactor TAs are beginning to receive these regularly, good source of info) El Attached is an AREVA analysis (now public domain). AREVA is the fuel vendor for Fukushima so they have done safety analysis for the plant. Good presentation but erroneous in several respects regarding water levels, plant design features, Tsunami height, so be careful with this info.


AIset of slides on hypothetical scenarios are attached. These are the one the f White House has reviewed based on NRC/DOE(NARAC). I received the slides courtesy of another Commission office. Worker Doses w Reported in the media, As of April 3, Tepco have said that some 370 people are at work at the Fukushima Daiichi site, 51 of whom are contractors.
Li At the fully stabilized Daini site, which remains under emergency status, there

are 626 workers, of which 64 are contractors.
Li To date, 21 workers have received radiation doses of more than 10 R, while

none have reached the level of 20 R. The Japanese regulatory limit for this specific emergency situation is 25 R (normally it is 10 R). EL Reports on shortage of dosimeters and that some dosimeters have an upper dose rate limit of 1R/hr.
