Indian Point Leaky Maps

Indian Point Two Tritium Map-Above
Indian Point Ground Water Contaminant Flows-Below

Study these test well results, and the print we have bolded...if this tritium is NOT characteristic of what one would expect to find in the Spent Fuel Pool, then WHERE is the tritium LEAKING FROM? In short, it is leaking from the HOT SIDE of Indian Point...more specifically, from the reactor coolant system, or the reactor itself, as in the internals. Further, the fact that the tritium is being found, means it is contaminating ground water, and in more than one way.

Well Sample Date Location Tritium

MW-34 12/13/2005 Transformer Yard 63,900 p/CI/l
MW-35 12/13/2005 Transformer Yard 42, 300 p/CI/l
MW-33 12/13/2005 Transformer Yard 142,000 p/CI/l

These results are above drinking water standards but below the levels found in MW-1 11. No other isotopes characteristic of spent fuel pool water was found in any of these sample results. These wells are test wells and are not part of any drinking water system and do not pose a threat to workers or the general public. These wells will continue to be sampled as results can vary due to environmental conditions especially rainfall, at the time the sample is drawn.

NOW, moving on in the same document...STORM DRAINS. If they are taking tritium samples from storm drains, this means, contrary to NRC and Entergy claims, that the tritium IS LEAVING THE SITE.

Storm Water Drains Now Included in Test Program In order to develop a comprehensive data set that will lead to a conceptual model of ground water movement on site, samples for tritium were taken from the storm drains in and adjacent to the transformer yard.

Test results showed detectable levels for tritium in the storm drains ranging from less than 2000 pCi/L in sample locations 17, 18 and 19 to a high of between 12,000 and 51,000 pCi/L at sample location MHI-6 nearmonitoring well MW- 11. The remaining wells tested between 2000 and 5300 pCi/L. Storm drains at Indian Point flow into the discharge canal. True...but, that STORM RUN OFF then flows INTO THE HUDSON River.

There are three NRC ADAMS documents that one should look at to start, and these are:


Lastly, under the heading, "One picture is worth 1,000 words, I give you two."

This one is rather interesting...Notice the crack running in a horizontal direction. Notice the sign hanging there warning people that the area is RADIOACTIVELY CONTAMINATED.
Two schools of thought surround this photograph that was taken on the Indian Point, is a picture of the crack in spent fuel pool number two. The other, that it is a picture taken along the wall of the reactor itself...either way, it is pretty damning.
