recommended by The Nuclear Regulatory Commission, NRC Staff,
1. Require reactors to be able to handle
sustained loss of normal and backup power.
2. Require plant owners to install reliable
hardened containment vents.
3. Require plant owners to upgrade methods for adding
water to a spent fuel pool during an accident and to install
instruments to monitor pool temperature and water levels.
4 Develop procedures for severe accidents
exceeding the level presently thought possible, integrating
them with those for anticipated accidents and terrorist
5. Require plant owners to reevaluate the seismic and
flooding risks to reactors, upgrade protections against
both, and upgrade seismic monitoring instrumentation.
6. Identify ways to prevent hydrogen explosions in the
containment and building.
7. Develop ways to improve protection against
seismically induced fires and floods.
8. Modify emergency plans, including methods for
radiation dose assessment and communications to cope with
the sustained loss of normal and backup power supplies.
9. Pursue emergency issues such as delivering
equipment through off-site impediments (e.g., failed
bridges, blocked roadways) and competing for emergency
10. Equip containment vents with filters that would reduce
the amount of radioactivity released to the atmosphere
during a reactor accident.
11. Expand emergency planning zones around reactors in
accordance with site-specific parameters and make potassium
iodide available beyond 10 miles.
12. Accelerate the transfer of spent fuel to dry cask
storage so that the spent fuel pool hazard will decrease by
reducing the density of the fuel remaining in the pools.
13. Protect and reinforce the “ultimate heat sink”
systems such as seawater pumps and motors used to remove
heat from the reactor coolant system following an accident.
