Hurricane Harvey Targets South Texas Nuclear Power Station With High Dam Failure Vulnerability < UPDATED

Mining Awareness +


Hurricane Harvey Updates here: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov

Hurricane Harvey’s forecast track targets a two reactor nuclear power station called the South Texas Project (STP). An internal US NRC memo leaked to the public (see below) classified it as being High on Dam Hazard Vulnerability due to the cooling pond, though they probably mean the Main Cooling Reservoir. There is-was a proposal for two more reactors at the site (STP 3 and 4). Information on the proposed reactors includes some relevant information on the site: “The STP 3 & 4 site is located 10.5 miles inland from Matagorda Bay and 16.9 miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico. It is approximately 75 miles from the Continental Shelf. The shoreline of Matagorda Peninsula along the Gulf of Mexico changes constantly, retreating landward or advancing seaward as the result of a combination of hydrologic and meteorological processes, climatic factors as well as engineering…

      Maybe someone wants to call the nuclear plant and see if they are really going to shut down.

  2. Also Texas is famous for its medical research. How many nuke reactors, experimental facilities are near Corpus Christi?

    After hurricane Rita some major hospitals did modern flood protection upgrades.

    Why does Houston flood so much?
    Downtown Houston is just 50 feet above sea level, leaving it prone to storm-surge flooding. Poorly draining soils across the metro area increase the risk of flash flooding during heavy rain events,”

    • Dr. Leuren Moret says, ” Tritium is extremely dangerous the degree to which depends on whether it is a gas, attached to water, or attached to protein. Tritium gas dissipates fast and is not as dangerous as attached to water. When attached to water it is 25,000 times more dangerous than as a gas. When it is attached to protein, it is 125,000 times more damaging than as a gas. Nasty stuff and causes sterilization in reproductive organs.”
