Briefing Sheet Fukushima Daiichi "
Units 1, 2, and 3 reactors appear to be in a static condition. Seawater injection to the reactor coolant systems (via fire trucks) is continuing. Containment integrity status is uncertain for all 3 units. Report of steam coming from Unit 2. Reports of smoke from Unit 3 due to potential oil fire (Source: INPO). Unit I feedwater thermocouple reading 720 degrees F; and reactor lower head temperature is 741 degrees F.

" AC power cables installed from a nearby transmission line to Units 1&2. TEPCO is working to establish power to necessary cooling equipment (U2 first). Electrical power has been restored to the Unit 3 control room (Source: NHK World). Power cables connected to a load center in Unit 4. External AC power restored to Unit 5. Unit 6 diesel generators running. RHR pumps providing cooling to both Units 5&6. 480 VAC power has been restored to portions of all 4 units, but limited capability to operate any equipment at this time. * Multi-day trending of all available dose rate information shows slightly declining levels. On-site surveys of the exterior of reactor buildings show dose rates for 60/mR/hr to 15 R/hr with the highest dose rates around the Unit 3 reactor building. DOE aerial Monitoring System assessments support the recommendation for evacuation of US citizens within 50 miles of the plant. AMS flights have been grounded due to weather for the past two days. 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.

" Coordinating with NARAC and interagency partners on assumptions and key messages for dose assessments from the "Bounding Reasonable (Source Term) Model" and a more conservative, extreme source term model, including next steps. * Industry Consortium call established for 10:00 am each day. Priorities include establishing a method for US industry to interact with TEPCO (INPO representative scheduled to arrive in Tokyo 3:00 pm JDT March 23) and offering longer-term solutions for core and spent fuel pool cooling. Both shipments of the two trains of Bechteldesigned equipment arrived at Yokota Air Base today. NRC initiated request to identify another U.S. Government agency to coordinate equipment support logistics, funding, etc.

" Conducting an objective review to determine if there are any additional actions that we should be taking but to date may have missed. * * NRC drafted criteria for relaxing the previous issued 50 mile protective action recommendation around Fukushima. Continuing to refine the criteria upon which the agency would "stand-down" from its active monitoring activities in response to the Fukushima reactor events.
