2nd Fire south in 30 days + DFW’s Comanche Peak’s other nuclear related oopsies

AP reported The DFW Comanche Peak Nuclear Power Plant from 2000-2012 had two high level violations.

Here is a Texas Sharon link to a video by David on fracking near a nuke plant that risks our DFW area.
 
 
update 2/13/2014  yet another fire south of the Luminant Nuclear Power Plant which is south of the DFW Metroplex (I reinerate “south” because thats the direction of our prevailing winds)…this one was further away (<5 miles) than the fire in the story below, but just to show how often bad things happen near nukes….and we’re in a drought….jus’ sayn’!!!

(nuclear?) “Disaster Averted” …….reporter afraid of losing job?
 
How can you report on a fire that is about 8,000 FEET FROM A DFW NUCLEAR POWER PLANT and not mention that in the article? I wonder if I used my Google Earth Map correctly to calculate how close that fire was….

A reporter for YourGlenroseTX.com entitled the article as “Disaster Averted” . The subtitle of the firey, smokey pictures read as …“Somervell County Fire Department extinguishes a large fire on CR 313 Loop, saving a residence near the fire’s source and protecting neighboring properties.” 
 
The report  reads…..
“Somervell County Fire Department responded to a fire in the 3700 block of CR 313 Loop around 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 14. The blaze was extinguished just before cutting through a residence. No injuries reported and no residents were displaced, but a number of automobiles and a vacant mobile home were destroyed. Tolar and Indian Harbor VFDs responded to the scene to provide mutual aid.”

Originally this was reported as the 3,000 block (which makes it even closer to the reactors) and later corrected on Facebook as the 3,700 block. A comment about the “wicked winds” in that fire made my bones chill.

There never seems to be any “real” news on that Glenrose paper-its like Arlington’s feel-good citizen tax payer funded newsblog that doesn’t cover “all” the newsworthy stories.

The OTHER risks to this DFW nuclear power plant that have come to my attention since I’ve been active is also listed here……

1) fracking too close to the dams whose Squaw Creek Reservoir is an important cooling source for the reactors. Here is an excellant video on this…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mf1B61WbB

When I asked how close drilling could occur to nuke plant…..

Subject: RE: Q on nearby old wells to new wells

There are no specific restrictions in the RRC rules.

2) risk of drought (and still allowing fracking) which could interfere with the source water (Lake Grandbury) for the reactor cooling reservoir. Here is a link to how the Millstone nuclear power plant in Waterford, CT had to shut down one of its reactors cause the cooling waters from was too warm in Aug 2012.

3) the dead animals found nearby at a drillsite-that may have been killed by an intermittant H2S release..one of the crazy responses I received from the RRC is that it looked like a dumping ground for animals shot.  Now who would be shooting animals near a drill site…by a dam that protects our DFW nuclear power plant?

About Kim Triolo Feil

Since TX Statute 253.005 forbids drilling in heavily settled municipalities, I unsuccessfully ran for City Council Seat to try to enforce this. Since Urban Drilling, our drinking water has almost tripled for TTHM's. Before moving to Arlington in 1990, I lived in Norco’s “cancer alley”, a refinery town. It was only after Urban Drilling in Arlington did I start having health effects. After our drill site was established closest to my home, the chronic nosebleeds started. I know there are more canaries here in Arlington having reactions to our industrialized airshed (we have 55-60 padsites of gas wells). Come forward and report to me those having health issues especially if you live to the north/northwest of a drill site so I can map your health effects on this blog.
