Free radiation monitoring information from private and government sites to the public !



   

Nuclear Emergency Tracking Center – Netc.com is an Early Warning Radiation System that takes data from private radiation monitoring stations and EPA network and creates a RBL ( Radiation Background Level ) for each 3000+ stations everyday. NORM ( Natural Occurring Radioactive Material ) radiation background level  has been simplified in name only to RBL ( Radiation Background Level ). The same calculations are still used.  Radcon-1 will be the middle of RBL ( Radiation Background Level  ) range and it will be compared to the Current Radiation at that monitoring station. The increase change between middle of RBL and the Current Radiation will set the Radcon levels 2 for small increase, 3 for higher increase, and 4 for the top of the range over a three month time frame. When RBL is above the radiation background range and other requirements are met, an Radcon-5 Alert will be issue and Email/Text messages are sent. If the Radcon-1 is Green/Yellow, the RBL (Radiation Background Level) is decreasing or staying the same level, like in Japan where most of the RBL are Green/Yellow.

The average age of U.S. commercial reactors is about 35 years. The oldest operating reactors are Oyster Creek in New Jersey, and Nine Mile Point 1 in New York. Both reactors entered commercial service on December 1, 1969. The last newly built reactor to enter service was Tennessee’s Watts Bar 1 in 1996. In 2007, the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) voted to complete construction of Watts Bar 2. The TVA estimates that commercial operation of Watts Bar 2 could begin in 2016.

There are about 19,243 individual generators with nameplate generation capacities of at least 1 megawatt (MW) at about 7,304 operational power plants in the United States. A power plant may have one or more generators, and some generators may use more than one type of fuel.
