SUMMARY

During the week of August 8, 2010 the 2010 Beaver Valley Power Station Post Plume exercise was conducted in the State of West Virginia encompassing the risk and support jurisdictions within the 50-mile Ingestion Planning Zone surrounding the plant. The purpose of the exercise was to assess the level of State and local preparedness in responding to a Post Plume radiological emergency.

The exercise and out-of-sequence demonstrations were held in accordance with DHS/FEMARIII/NPD/REPP policies and guidance concerning the exercise of State and local radiological emergency response plans (RERP) and procedures.

The most recent prior Post Plume exercise was conducted during the week of May 11, 2004.This report contains the final evaluation results of the exercise.

The evaluation included activities at the West Virginia Emergency Operations Center, the Holiday Inn in Weirton for the four Counties in West Virginia involved in Post Plume Exercise evaluations, and Coonskin Park for Post Plume Sampling evaluations.

The Counties of Hancock, Brooke, Ohio and Marshall were evaluated.

A total of 7 evaluators were utilized for the entire exercise, which consisted of Region III REP staff. There were a total of 3 locations participating, with 49 evaluated criteria.The week's activities included the Counties, Field Sampling and State evaluations.

A preliminary findings discussion occurred at the end of each day's activities for the areas evaluated.

In the final analysis, there were no deficiencies, no areas requiring corrective action (ARCAs) and no planning issues. The State of West Virginia and local organizations demonstrated knowledge of their emergency response plans and procedures and adequately implemented them. Cooperation and teamwork of all the participants was evident during this exercise.FEMA wishes to acknowledge the efforts of the many individuals in the State of West Virginia who were evaluated at this exercise.

Protecting the public health and safety is the full-time job of some of the exercise participants and an additional assigned responsibility for others. Still others have willingly sought this responsibility by volunteering to provide vital emergency services to their communities.

SUMMARY

2.1 Exercise

Purpose and Design On December 7, 1979, the President directed the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to assume the lead responsibility for all off-site nuclear planning and response.

FEMA's activities were conducted pursuant to 44 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Parts 350, 351 and 352. These regulations are a key element in the Radiological Emergency Preparedness (REP)Program that was established following the Three Mile Island Nuclear Station accident in March 1979.44 CFR 350 establishes the policies and procedures for FEMA's initial and continued approval of Tribal, State, and local governments' radiological emergency planning and preparedness for commercial nuclear power plants. This approval is contingent, in part, on State and local government participation in joint exercises with licensees.

FEMA's responsibilities in radiological emergency planning for fixed nuclear facilities include the following:

  • A. Taking the lead in offsite emergency planning .and in the review and evaluation of Radiological Emergency Response Plans (RERPs) and procedures developed by State and local governments; B. Determining whether such plans and procedures can be implemented on the basis of observation and evaluation of exercises of the plans and procedures conducted by State and local governments; C. Responding to requests by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) pursuant to the Memorandum of Understanding between the NRC and FEMA dated June 17, 1993 (Federal Register, Vol. 58, No. 176, September 14, 1993; and D. Coordinating the activities of the following Federal agencies with responsibilities in the radiological emergency planning process:-U.S. Department of Commerce,-U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission,-U.S. Environmental Protection Agency,-U.S. Department of Energy,-U.S. Department of Health and Human Services,-U.S. Department of Transportation,-U.S. Department of Agriculture,-U.S. Department of the Interior, and-U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

8 Unclassified Radiological Emergency Preparedness Program (REP)After Action Report/Improvement Plan Beaver Valley Power Station Representatives.of these agencies serve on the FEMA Region III Radiological Assistance Committee (RAC), which is chaired by FEMA.The purpose of this exercise report is to present the exercise results and.findings on the performance of a nuclear radiological incident Post Plume by off-site response organizations (OROs).The findings presented in this report are based on the evaluations of the Federal evaluator team with final determinations made by the FEMA Region III RAC Chairperson and approved by FEMA Headquarters.

This report is provided to the NRC and participating States. State and local governments utilize the findings contained in this report for planning, training, and improving emergency response capabilities.

Thecriteria utilized in the FEMA evaluation process are contained in the following:

Appendix C, "Exercise Evaluators and Team Leaders," is a table that shows the names of evaluators, the locations to which they were assigned, and the organization for which the work.Appendix D, "Acronyms and Abreviations," is a glossary of terminology used in this report.Appendix E, "Exercise Plan," is a description of the exercise criteria scheduled for evaluation, the method of demonstration, and the extent to which participants will perform their assigned activities.

The following is a basic description of the Plume Pathway Emergency Planning Zone (EPZ): BVPS is located in western Pennsylvania on the southern bank of the Ohio River in Beaver County, Pennsylvania.

The site is located near Shippingport Borough, about 1 mile from Midland, Pennsylvania, on 501 acres of fairly level terrace owned by the FirstEnergy Nuclear Operating Company. The latitude for the site is 40'37'18" north; the longitude is 80026'02" west.Two pressurized water reactors are located on the 17 acres of the parcel occupied by the power station. The operating licenses for the facility were granted in July 1976 (Unit 1)'and August 1987 (Unit 2); commercial operations began at the site during October 1976 (Unit 1) and November 1987 (Unit 2). Unit 1 generates an output of 810 megawatts (MW); the Unit 2 output is 833 MW. One hundred and ten sirens cover the plume EPZ; 85 of the sirens are in Pennsylvania.

Steep slopes that contributed to the development of river mill towns, where most of the industry and residences are located, characterize the general topography of the region. The region is part of the large industrial complex centered on Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The terrain rises from the Ohio River to a maximum elevation of 1,160 feet above mean sea level (MSL).Drainage is predominantly toward the river. The soils in the area are made up of alluvial sands and gravel. The bedrock geology consists of sedimentary formations composed of shale and sandstone.

No faults are located under or near the facility.

The Ohio River is about 664 feet above MSL, and the plant grade is 735 feet above MSL. The climate is a humid continental type. The average annual temperature for the area is about 50 'F. Annual precipitation is approximately 36 inches. The area around the plant is mostly agricultural or undeveloped.

The nearest community is Shippingport Borough, Pennsylvania, which is the parent borough for the site and has a population of 237. The nearest major population center of more than 25,000 people is Pittsburgh,which has a population of 334,563 and lies 22 miles to the southeast.

The maximum population distribution, including residents and transients, is 94,023 in the 10-mile EPZ.10 Unclassified Radiological Emergency Preparedness Program (REP)After Action Report/Improvement Plan Beaver Valley Power Station Four major industries employ a total of 8,000 persons within 10 miles of the plant. Two small airfields (Beaver County and Herron Airport) are also in the 10 mile EPZ. Runways at both airports are oriented so that the extensions do not pass over the plant. No major thoroughfares exist in the immediate vicinity.

The main line of the Conrail Railroad runs parallel to the plant along the north bank of the Ohio River.The Post Plume exercise extends response efforts to a 50 mile EPZ in order to evaluate efforts to protect the health and safety of the public as a result of radiological contamination to the environs.2.2 Exercise Objectives, Capabilities and Activities Exercise objectives and identified Capabilities/REP Criteria selected to be exercised are discussed in Appendix E, "Exercise Plan".2.3 Scenario Summary August 10, 2010 Lead-In Scenario -Ingestion Pathway On Monday August 9, 2010 an emergency occurred at the Beaver Valley Power Station Unit 2 that resulted in a significant release of radioactive material off-site.

There were no deficiencies, no areas requiring corrective action (ARCAs) and no planning issues. Cooperation and teamwork of all the participants was evident during this exercise.19 Unclassified Radiological Emergency Preparedness Program (REP)After Action Report/Improvement Plan Beaver Valley Power Station APPENDIX A: EXERCISE TIMELINE The following timeline describes the sequence of daily evaluated events, locations and functions for the West Virginia Post Plume Phase Ingestion Pathway Exercise participants encompassing the counties of Hancock, Brooke, Ohio and Marshall within the 50-Mile Emergency Planning Zone for Beaver Valley Nuclear Power Station (BVPS).Offsite Response Functions to be Demonstrated:

  • Return, Re-Entry and Relocation

-Decision Making (State)* Communications (State and Counties)Return, Re-Entry and Relocation

-Implementation (Hancock County)* Protective Action Implementation (Hancock, Brooke, Ohio & Marshall Counties* Field Sampling and Worker Monitoring (State)Field Play: State Function" All field team exercise play for the State will be demonstrated in the Charleston area;" One Sample Collection Team will participate;" The Sample Collection Point will be established by State;" The Chain-of-Custody for samples will be demonstrated;" Shipments .of samples will be simulated;" Due to possible elevated temperatures in August, donning of personal protective equipment will be simulated and discussed.

  • Facilitators will provide for the State play and ingestion counties play.An exercise facilitator is someone who provides information, requests certain tasks be performed, and initiates discussion among participants to help them demonstrate required objectives without actually performing tasks or taking actions required of drill participants.

The role of a facilitator is much more active than that of a controller, used during early phase drills and exercises.

Demonstration Windows: The demonstration windows are those periods of time designated in the exercise during which specified demonstrations will be accomplished.

The purpose of the window is to provide for more effective demonstrations as well as permitting the release of volunteers from the exercise play at a reasonable hour.* The State Field Play will be demonstrated on August 10, 2010.20 Unclassified Radiological Emergency Preparedness Program (REP)After Action Report/Improvement Plan Beaver Valley Power Station* The State EOC Play will be demonstrated on August 11, 2010." IP County play will be demonstrated on August 10, 2010.Termination

  • The Lead County Facilitator will coordinate the Exercise Termination for the Ingestion County Play.The Lead State Facilitator in the WVEOC will coordinate the Exercise Termination for the WVEOC Play.* The Lead State Facilitator with the WV Field Team will coordinate the Exercise Termination for the WV Field Play.* Termination will be based on the completion of the objectives.

The termination can happen sooner than the identified end time.Locations:

These limits include any pre-established administrative reporting limits (that take into consideration Total Effective Dose Equivalent or organ-specific limits) identified in the ORO's plans and procedures.

Extent-Of-Play:

Responsible OROs should demonstrate the capability to make decisions concerning the authorization of exposure levels in excess of pre-authorized levels and to the number of emergency workers receiving radiation dose above pre-authorized levels. As appropriate, OROs should demonstrate the capability to make decisions on the distribution and administration of KI, as a protective measure, based on the ORO's plan and/or procedures or projected thyroid dose compared with the established protective action guides (PAGs) for KI administration.

Beaver Valley Power Station WV IPX Exercise (August 10-1 1 th , 2010) -Extent of Play EVALUATION AREA 2: PROTECTIVE ACTION DECISION-MAKING Sub-element 2.d -Radiological Assessment

& Decision Making for Ingestion Exposure Criterion 2.d.1: Radiological consequences for the ingestion pathway are assessed and appropriate protective action decisions are made based on the ORO planning criteria. (NUREG-0645 1.8. J.11.)Intent: This sub-element is derived from NUREG-0654,:

which provides that Offsite Response Organizations (OROs) have the means to assess the radiological consequences for the ingestion exposure pathway, relate them to the appropriate PAGs, and make timely, appropriate protective action decisions to mitigate exposure from the ingestion pathway.During an accident at a nuclear power plant, a release of radioactive material may contaminate water supplies and agricultural products in the surrounding areas. Any such contamination would likely occur during the plume phase of the accident and, depending on the nature of the release, could impact the ingestion pathway for weeks or years.Extent-Of-Play:

It is expected that the Offsite Response Organizations (ORO's) will take precautionary actions to protect food and water supplies, or to minimize exposure to potentially contaminated water and food, in accordance with their respective plans and procedures.

Often such precautionary actions are initiated by the ORO's based on criteria related to the facility's Emergency Classification Levels (ECL). Such actions may include recommendations to place animals on stored feed and to use protected water supplies.The ORO should use its procedures (for example, development of a sampling plan).to assess the radiological consequences of a release on the food and water supplies.

The ORO's assessment should include the evaluation of the radiological analyses of representative samples of water, food, and other ingestible substances of local interest from potentially impacted areas, the characterization of the releases from the facility, and the extent of areas potentially impacted by the release. During this assessment, ORO's should consider the use of agricultural and watershed data within the,50-mile EPZ. The radiological impacts on the food and water should then be compared to the appropriate ingestion PAGs referenced in the ORO's plan and/or procedures. (The plans and/or procedures may contain PAGs based on specific dose commitment criteria or based on criteria as recommended by current Food and Drug Administration guidance.)

Timely and appropriate recommendations should be provided to the ORO decision-makers group for implementation decisions.

As time permits, the ORO may also include a comparison of taking or not taking a given action on the resultant ingestion pathway dose commitments.

The ORO should demonstrate timely decisions to minimize radiological impacts from the ingestion pathway, based on the given assessments and other information available.

Any such decisions should be communicated and, to the extent practical, coordinated with neighboring and local ORO's. ORO's shou4 use Federal resources, as identified in the Federal Radiological Emergency Respons' Plan (FRERP), and other resources (e.g., compacts, nuclear insurers, etc.), if available..

Evaluation of this criterion will take, into consideration the level of Federal and other resources participating.

(NUREG-0654, A.l.b. 1.1O.,M)Intent: This sub-element is derived from NUREG-0654, which provides that Offsite Response Organizations (OROs) have the capability to make decisions on relocation, Reentry, and return of the general public. These decisions are essential for the protection of the public from the direct long-term exposure to deposited.

radioactive materials from a severe accident at a nuclear power plant.Extent-Of-Play:

Relocation:

ORO's should demonstrate the capability to estimate integrated dose in contaminated areas and to compare these estimates With PAGs, apply decision criteria for relocation of those individuals in the general public who have not been evacuated but where projected doses are in excess of relocation PAGs, and control access to evacuated and restricted areas. Decisions are made for relocating members of the evacuated public who lived in areas that now have residual radiation levels in excess of the PAGs. Determination of areas to be restricted should be based on factors such as the mix of radionuclides in deposited materials, calculated exposure rates vs. the PAGs, and field samples of vegetation and soil analyses.Re-Entry:

Decisions should be made regarding the location of control points and policies regarding access and exposure control for emergency workers and members of the general public who need to temporarily enter the evacuated area to perform specific tasks or missions.

Examples of control procedures are: the assignment of, or checking for, direct-reading and non-direct-reading dosimetry for emergency workers; questions regarding the individual's objectives and locations expected to be visited and associated time frames;availability of maps and plots of radiation exposure rates; advice on areas to avoid; and procedures for exit including:

monitoring of individuals, vehicles, and equipment; decision criteria regarding decontamination; and proper disposition of emergency worker dosimetry and maintenance of emergency worker radiation exposure records. Responsible ORO's should demonstrate the capability to develop a strategy for authorized Reentry of individuals into the restricted zone, based on established decision criteria.ORO's should demonstrate the capability to modify those policies for security purposes (e.g., police patrols), for maintenance of essential services (e.g., fire protection and utilities), and for other critical functions.

They should demonstrate the capability to use decision making criteria in allowing access to the restricted zone by the public for various reasons, such as to maintain property (e.g., to caje, for farm animals or secure machinery for storage), or to retrieve important posseg~ions.

Coordinated policies for access and exposure control should be developed among all agencies with roles to perform in the restricted zone. ORO's should demonstrate the capability to establish policies for provision Unclassified Radiological Emergency Preparedness Program (REP)After Action Report/Improvement Plan I Beaver Valley Power Station WV IPX Exercise (August 10-1 1 th , 2010) -Extent of Play of dosimetry to all individuals allowed to re-enter the restricted zone. The extent that ORO's need to develop policies on Reentry will be determined by scenario events.Return: Decisions are to be based on environmental data and political boundaries or physical/geological features, which allow identification of the boundaries of areas to which members of the general public may return. Return is permitted to the boundary of the restricted area that is based on the relocation PAG. Other factors that the ORO should consider are, for example: conditions that permit the cancellation of the Emergency Classification Level and the relaxation of associated restrictive measures; basing return recommendations (i.e., permitting populations that were previously evacuated to reoccupy their homes and businesses on an unrestricted basis) on measurements of radiation from ground deposition; and the capability to identify services and facilities that require restoration within a few days and to identify the procedures and resources for their restoration.

Examples of these services and facilities are: medical and social services, utilities, roads, schools, and intermediate term housing for relocated persons.State of West Virginia Negotiated Extent-of-Play:

All activities will be based on the plans and procedures and completed as they would be in an actual emergency.

Hancock County will be the only county to demonstrate Relocation, Re-Rentry, and Return through tabletop discussion.

Outstanding Issues: None 38 Unclassified Radiological Emergency Preparedness Program (REP)After Action Report/Improvement Plan Beaver Valley Power Station WV IPX Exercise (August 10-1 1 th 2010) -Extent of Play EVALUATION AREA 3: PROTECTIVE ACTION IMPLEMENTATION Sub-element 3.a -Implementation of Emergency Worker Exposure Control Criterion 3.a.1: The OROs issue appropriate dosimetry and procedures, and manage radiological exposure to emergency workers in accordance with the plans and procedures.

Emergency workers periodically and at the end of each mission read their dosimeters and record the readings on the appropriate exposure record or chart. (NUREG-0654, K.3.)Intent: This sub-element is derived from NUREG-0654, which provides that OROs should have the capability to provide for the following:

distribution, use, collection; and processing of direct-reading dosimeters and permanent record dosimeters; provide for direct-reading dosimeters to be read at appropriate frequencies by emergency workers; maintain a radiation dose record for each emergency worker; and provide for establishing a decision chain or authorization procedure for emergency workers to incur radiation exposures in excess of protective action guides, always applying the ALARA (As Low As is Reasonably Achievable) principle as appropriate.

Extent-Of-Play:

OROs should demonstrate the capability to provide appropriate direct-reading and permanent record dosimetry, dosimetry chargers, and instructions on the use of dosimetry to emergency workers.For evaluation purposes, appropriate direct-reading dosimetry is defined as dosimetry that allows individual(s) to read the administrative reporting limits (that are pre-established at a level low enough to consider subsequent calculation of Total Effective Dose Equivalent) and maximum exposure limits (for those emergency workers involved in life saving activities) contained in the OROs plans and procedures.

Each emergency worker should have the basic knowledge of radiation exposure limits as specified in the ORO's plan and/or procedures.

Procedures to monitor and record dosimeter readings and to manage radiological exposure control should be demonstrated.

During a plume phase exercise, emergency workers should demonstrate the procedures to be followed when administrative exposure limits and turn-back values are reached. The emergency worker should report accumulated exposures during the exercise as indicated in the plans and procedures.

ORPs should demonstrate the actions described in the plan and/or procedures by determining whether to replace the worker, to authorize the worker to incur additional exposures or to take other actions. If scenario events do not require emergency workers to seek authorizations for additional exposure, evaluators should interview at least two emergency workers, to determine their knowledge of whom to contact in the event authorization is needed and at what exposure levels. Emergency workers may use any available resources (e.g. written procedures and/or co-workers) in providing responses.

Although it is desirable for all emergency workers to each have a direct-reading dosimeter, there may be situations where team members will be in close proximity to each other during the entire mission and adequate control of exposure can be affected for all members of the team by one dosimeter worn by the team leader. Emergency workers who are assigned to low exposure rate areas, e.g., at receptidi9 centers, counting laboratories, emergency operations centers, and communications centers, may have individual direct-reading dosimeters or they may be monitored by dosimeters strategically placed in the work area. It should be noted that, even in these situations, each team member must still have their own Unclassified Radiological Emergency Preparedness Program (REP)After Action Report/Improvement Plan Beaver Valley Power Station WV IPX Exercise (August 10-1 1 th , 2010) -Extent of Play permanent record dosimeter.

Individuals without specific radiological response missions, such as farmers for animal care, essential utility service personnel, or other members of the public who must re-enter an evacuated area following or during the plume passage, should be limited to the lowest radiological exposure commensurate with completing their missions.State of West Virginia Negotiated Extent-of-Play:

All activities will be based on the plans and procedures and completed as they would be in an actual emergency except as noted below. Counties would conduct appropriate RAD Briefings in accordance with their plans and procedures.

State assistance would be provided if requested by counties in accordance with established protocol.

Hancock County successfully demonstrated this sub-element during the plume phase exercise held on April 20, 2010. Interviews during the county table top exercise may be utilized to explain their procedures.

Appropriate dosimetry and procedures will be issued at the WV Field Team/Sample Reception Center and radiological exposure to field team members will be managed in accordance with the plans and procedures.

Appropriate record keeping of the administration of KI for emergency workers and institutionalized individuals (not the general public) is maintained. (NUREG-0654, E. 7., J. 10. e., f.)Intent: This sub-element is derived from NUREG-0654, which provides that OROs should have the capability to provide radioprotective drugs for emergency workers, institutionalized individuals, and, if in the plan and/or procedures, to the general public for whom immediate evacuation may not be feasible, very difficult, or significantly delayed. While it is necessary for OROs to have the capability to provide KI to emergency workers and institutionalized individuals, the provision of KI to the general public is an ORO option, reflected in ORO's plans and procedures.

Provisions should include the availability of adequate quantities, storage, and means of the distribution of radioprotective drugs.Extent-Of-Play:

OROs should demonstrate the capability to make KI available to emergency workers, institutionalized individuals, and, where provided for in the ORO plan and/or procedures, to members of the general public. OROs should demonstrate the capability to accomplish distribution of KI consistent with decisions made. Organizations should have the capability to develop and maintain lists of emergency workers and institutionalized individuals who have ingested KI, including documentation of the date(s)and time(s) they were instructed to ingest KI. The ingestion of KI recommended by the designated ORO health official is voluntary.

For evaluation purposes, the actual ingestion of KI is not necessary.

OROs should demonstrate the capability to formulate and disseminate appropriate instructions on the use of KI for those advised to take it. If a recommendation is made for the general public to take KI, appropriate information should be provided to the public by the means of notification specified in the ORO's plan and/or procedures.

Emergency workers should demonstrate the basic knowledge of procedures for the use of KI whether or not the scenario drives the use of KI. This can be accomplished by an interview with the evaluator.

State of West Virginia Negotiated Extent-of-Play:

All activities will be based on the plans and procedures and completed as they would be in an actual emergency except as noted below. This is typically a county function and occurs during the Plume Phase. This sub-criteria was successfully demonstrated by Hancock County during the plume exercise on April 20, 2010. If needed, a discussion with Hancock County on their plans and procedures for use of KI can be held during the County Ingestion Pathway Table Top Exercise held in Weirton. The State recommends the use of KI to the County and the County implements the decision.
