MARCH 21, 2011 0600 EDT BRIEFING SHEET FUKUSHIMA DAI-ICHI " Units 1, 2, and 3 reactors appear to be in a stable condition

with seawater injection continuing. There were reports of "fresh water" being used on March 20. Containment integrity is believed to be intact on Units 1, 2, and 3. Containment pressure of Unit 3 has stabilized and venting is not imminent. Gray smoke emanated from Unit 3 which caused site evacuation; source of smoke unknown. The Japanese government indicated that there were no increases in temperatures or radioactivity. There are indications that both the Unit 3 and Unit 4 spent fuels pools have water level. " TEPCO has installed high voltage AC power cables from a nearby transmission line to Units 1&2. Units 1&2 have temporary power available. TEPCO is working to have temporary cables run to necessary cooling equipment. Power to Units 3&4 is planned (perhaps by Monday March 21). Two diesel generators are running and supplying AC power to Units 5&6. A Unit 5 RHR pump, powered by one of the U-6 diesel generators is providing cooling to the Unit 5 spent fuel pool. External AC power cables have reached Units 5&6, but power has not yet been connected. " Dose rates have not changed significantly at the site although some reductions were reported following efforts to add water to Unit 3. DOE Aerial Monitoring System assessments support the recommendation for evacuation of US citizens within 50 miles of the plant. Concentrations of iodine-131 in milk from cows within 20 kilometers (about 12 miles) of Fukushima Dai-ichi have reached levels 10 times maximum admissible levels and distribution of these products have been suspended. Still awaiting results from NARAC on "bounding worst case" source term's potential effects on U.S. NRC's protective measures team has drafted several scenarios for a more realistic worst case source term that is still being evaluated and is focusing efforts on this scenario. Wind direction is primarily towards the south for the next 12 hours, and then is expected to shift to the southwest. Industry Consortium call established for 10 am each day (call Monday is at 2 pm due to conflict with Commission meeting). Priority is to establish a method for US industry to interact with TEPCO, and US Government agency (not NRC) to help coordinate logistics, funding, etc. Call tomorrow with Chairman and USAID to determine the right agency to lead. Australian C-17 with Bechtel-designed equipment still on the ground with mechanical difficulties.

" A detailed discussion between OSTP (Holdren), Naval Reactors (Adm. Donald), PACOM (Adm. Willard), NRC (Chm. Jazcko), State (Ambassador Roos) was conducted to discuss the implications of airborne radioiodine samples collected near Tokyo and if further actions should be initiated.
