ABSTRACT

Development of Evacuation Time Estimate Studies for Nuclear Power Plants   [open pdf - 806KB]

"Since the publication of NUREG/CR-4831, State of the Art in Evacuation Time Estimate Studies for Nuclear Power Plants, technologies supporting the development of Evacuation Time Estimates (ETEs) have substantially changed and additional evacuation considerations have emerged. ETEs are part of the planning basis for each nuclear power plant (NPP), and as such, ETE studies are required to be performed by licensees to estimate the time needed to evacuate the public in the unlikely event of a serious accident. As advancements in new technologies that support evacuations and evacuation planning continue, and as new information on evacuations becomes available, it is important that these technologies and information be considered in development of an ETE."
