days?for?me?to?receive?my?response?and?informing?me?that?the?NRC?was?assigning?tracking?number?

?

on?January?30,?2012.??I?have?included?Mr.?Koberstein’s?incoming?request?as?Enclosure?3?and?the?NRC’s?
acknowledgement?letter?to?him?as?Enclosure?4.??So,?although?my?FOIA?request?(2013?0126)?is?“only”?44?
days?old,?the?NRC?has?had?Mr.?Koberstein’s?request?for?425?days?and?to?my?knowledge?has?still?not?
released?all?the?requested?records.??The?only?record?of?response?that?I?can?find?to?Mr.?Koberstein’s?
January?27,?2012?request?is?a?December?4,?2012?partial?response?(ML12363A094)?which?I?have?included?
as?Enclosure?5.?
?
In?his?January?21,?2009?Memorandum?on?the?Freedom?of?Information?Act,?President?Obama?stated:?
?
In?responding?to?requests?under?the?FOIA,?executive?branch?agencies?should?act?promptly?and?in?
a?spirit?of?cooperation,?recognizing?that?such?agencies?are?servants?of?the?public.?
?
I?realize?that?the?NRC’s?FOIA?office?is?understaffed,?but?taking?44?days?to?provide?five?documents?–?for?
which?they?were?given?the?ADAMS?Accession?numbers?–?is?not?acceptable.??It?is?not?living?up?to?the?
President’s?expectation.??Additionally,?the?documents?I?requested?(two?letters?of?response?by?a?licensee?
to?a?Confirmatory?Action?Letter,?a?letter?from?a?licensee?specifying?commitments?to?address?a?significant?
safety?concern,?a?technical?evaluation?on?the?probability?of?dam?failures,?and?a?memorandum?proposing?
a?Generic?Issue?on?flooding?due?to?dam?failures)?are?documents?which?should?have?always?been?public.??
In?his?January?21,?2009?Memorandum,?President?Obama?stated:?
?
…agencies?should?take?affirmative?steps?to?make?information?public.??They?should?not?wait?for?
specific?requests?from?the?public.??All?agencies?should?use?modern?technology?to?inform?citizens?
about?what?is?known?and?done?by?their?Government.??Disclosure?should?be?timely.?
?
When?the?President?states?“what?is?known?and?done?by?their?Government”?I?am?sure?you?recognize,?as?I?
do,?that?he?would?consider?the?five?documents?requested?in?FOIA?2013?0126?to?fall?under?that?category.??
The?documents?I?requested?are?clearly?documents?which?should?have?been?made?public?without?waiting?
“for?specific?requests?from?the?public.”?
?
Of?the?records?I?have?requested,?one?(ML103490330)?has?been?released?in?ADAMS?in?response?to?
FOIA/PA?2013?0116?by?Carl?Stelzer.??Although?I?have?not?been?formally?informed?of?the?release?of?
ML103490330?by?the?NRC’s?FOIA?office,?since?I?am?now?aware?that?it?is?publicly?available?in?ADAMS,?I?
can?consider?it?as?provided?under?FOIA?2013?0126?and?do?not?need?a?hardcopy?sent?to?me.?
?
I?am?still?awaiting?the?release?of?the?following?documents:?
?
? ML111460063?
? ML100780084?
? ML101610083?
? ML101900305?
A?redacted?version?of?ML100780084?(ML13039A084)?was?released?in?ADAMS?in?response?to?FOIA/PA?
2013?0110?by?Paul?Blanch,?a?redacted?version?of?ML101610083?(ML13051A896)?was?released?in?ADAMS?
in?response?to?FOIA/PA?2013?0113?by?Joe?Carson,?and?a?redacted?version?of?ML101900305?
(ML13039A086)?was?released?in?ADAMS?in?response?to?FOIA/PA?2013?0133?by?Kay?Drey.?
?
I?do?not?agree?with?the?redactions?the?NRC’s?Office?of?Nuclear?Reactor?Regulation?(NRR)?applied?to?the?
documents?released?to?Mr.?Blanch,?Mr.?Carson?and?Ms.?Drey.??I?believe?NRR?is?abusing?the?scope?of?FOIA?
Exemption?7(F).??FOIA?Exemption?7(F)?is?meant?to?protect?law?enforcement?informants.??By?broadly?
categorizing?protection?against?sabotage?as?falling?under?Exemption?7(F),?NRR?is?bypassing?the?legislative?
checks?and?balances?which?were?meant?to?occur?as?part?of?the?Freedom?of?Information?Act.??There?is?a?
process?for?redacting?information?which?the?NRC?believes?is?useful?to?saboteurs.??That?process?is?to?mark?
2
the?documents?as?classified?materials?or?as?Safeguards.??If?neither?of?these?designations?legitimately?
applies,?then?the?process?is?to?go?to?the?US?Congress?and?ask?for?a?new?statutory?designation?for?which?
NRR?can?use?FOIA?Exemption?3.??Abusing?Exemption?7(F)?is?not?what?the?President?expects?NRR?to?do:??
?
The?Freedom?of?Information?Act?should?be?administered?with?a?clear?presumption:??In?the?face?of?
doubt,?openness?prevails.??The?Government?should?not?keep?information?confidential?merely?
because?public?officials?might?be?embarrassed?by?disclosure,?because?errors?and?failures?might?
be?revealed,?or?because?of?speculative?or?abstract?fears.?
?
I?recognize?that?the?way?we?have?handled?the?Jocassee/Oconee?issue?is?embarrassing.???I?recognize?that?
it?is?embarrassing?for?us?to?admit?that?the?original?licensing?for?Oconee?Station?failed?to?take?into?
account?the?probability?of?flooding?due?to?a?failure?of?Jocassee?Dam.??I?recognize?it?is?embarrassing?for?us?
to?admit?that?the?flood?wall?around?Oconee?is?undersized?and?we?have?known?about?it?since?early?1994?
yet?have?not?been?able?to?get?Duke?Energy?to?correct?it.??I?recognize?that?it?is?embarrassing?that?it?took?
over?two?years?to?route?an?Information?Notice?and?a?Generic?Issue?on?flooding?due?to?upstream?dam?
failures.??But,?as?the?President?stated,?“The?Government?should?not?keep?information?confidential?merely?
because?public?officials?might?be?embarrassed?by?disclosure,?because?errors?and?failures?might?be?
revealed,?or?because?of?speculative?or?abstract?fears.”?
?
With?regard?to?“speculative?or?abstract?fears”,?withholding?from?the?public?–?for?over?six?years?–?the?
significant?safety?liability?which?Jocassee?Dam?poses?to?the?three?reactors?at?Oconee?Nuclear?Station?
because?of?vague?concerns?about?terrorism?and?sabotage?is?giving?into?“speculative?or?abstract?fears”.??
None?of?the?information?redacted?from?the?documents?provided?to?Mr.?Blanch,?Mr.?Carson?and?Ms.?Drey?
contain?any?reference?to?security?matters.??The?weak?points?in?the?dam’s?construction?–?if?there?are?any?
–?are?not?revealed.??The?physical?security?of?the?dam?–?if?there?is?any?–?is?not?discussed.??All?that?is?
revealed?by?the?redacted?material?is?the?severe?SAFETY?liability?posed?to?the?public?by?a?failure?of?
Jocassee?Dam.???It?is?the?President’s?expectation?that?“In?the?face?of?doubt,?openness?prevails”.??I?have?
much?doubt?about?NRR’s?speculative?and?abstract?fears?regarding?sabotage?of?Jocassee?Dam?and?I?
expect?openness?to?prevail.??Maybe?there?is?a?legitimate?security?threat?to?Jocassee?Dam,?but?the?
information?redacted?from?the?documents?does?nothing?to?make?that?security?threat?worse?yet?it?does?
plenty?to?keep?the?public?from?being?informed?“about?what?is?known?and?done?by?their?Government.”?
?
I?expect?to?receive?unredacted?versions?of?ML100780084,?ML101610083,?and?ML101900305?as?part?of?
FOIA/PA?request?2013?0126.??If?the?NRC?does?not?intend?to?send?me?unredacted?versions?of?these?three?
documents?and?if?the?NRC?instead?intends?to?provide?me?the?redacted?versions?which?were?provided?to?
Mr.?Blanch,?Mr.?Carson?and?Ms.?Drey,?then?I?expect?you?to?formally?tell?me?in?a?FOIA?response?so?that?I?
can?pursue?the?release?of?the?requested?documents?in?accordance?with?10?CFR?§2.29(c).?
?
Also,?I?expect?to?receive?an?unredacted?version?of?ML111460063?which?to?my?knowledge?has?never?been?
publicly?released?by?the?NRC?in?either?an?unredacted?or?a?redacted?form?since?being?requested?by?Paul?
Koberstein?425?days?ago,?since?being?requested?by?Jim?Riccio?191?days?ago?(ML12263A087),?and?since?
being?requested?by?me?45?days?ago.??I?have?included?Mr.?Riccio’s?request?as?Enclosure?6.?
?
I?recognize?that,?to?the?NRC,?Paul?Koberstein’s?and?Jim?Riccio’s?requests?might?seem?daunting?–?
especially?given?that?emails?fall?under?the?documents?they?seek?–?but?to?delay?formal?correspondence?
between?the?NRC?and?a?licensee?for?425?days?and?191?days?respectively?is?unsatisfactory.??The?NRC?
should?release?ALL?correspondence?with?licensees?prior?to?getting?a?FOIA?request?for?it.??If?parts?of?the?
correspondence?must?be?withheld,?then?it?should?be?redacted?–?but?a?few?sensitive?sentences?should?
3
not?cause?an?entire?piece?of?correspondence?to?be?withheld.??That?is?what?the?Attorney?General?alludes?
to?in?his?March?19,?2009?Memorandum:?
?
“…agencies?should?readily?and?systematically?post?information?online?in?advance?of?any?public?
request.??Providing?more?information?online?reduces?the?need?for?individualized?requests?and?
may?help?reduce?existing?backlogs.??When?information?not?previously?disclosed?is?requested,?
agencies?should?make?it?a?priority?to?respond?in?a?timely?manner.??Timely?disclosure?of?
information?is?an?essential?component?of?transparency.??Long?delays?should?not?be?viewed?as?an?
inevitable?and?insurmountable?consequence?of?high?demand.”??
?
I?have?included?the?President’s?memo?as?Enclosure?7?and?the?Attorney?General’s?memo?as?Enclosure?8?
since,?apparently,?there?are?some?offices?within?the?NRC?that?didn’t?get?the?memo.?
?
Also?enclosed?with?this?letter?(Enclosure?9)?is?a?five?page?list?of?documents?relating?to?the?flooding?
hazard?which?Jocassee?Dam?poses?to?the?three?reactors?at?the?Oconee?Nuclear?Station.??This?list?was?
originally?included?in?a?2012?10?15?letter?to?the?Senate?Committee?on?Homeland?Security?&?
Governmental?Affairs?and?in?a?2012?11?14?letter?to?the?Senate?Committee?on?the?Environment?&?Public?
Works.??There?are?101?documents?listed?on?Enclosure?9.??On?the?list?I?highlighted?thirteen?documents?
which?were?originally?stamped?“Official?Use?Only?–?Security?Related?Information”?or?some?similar?
designation?which?prevented?them?from?being?shared?with?the?public.??All?thirteen?of?these?documents?
were?released?under?the?Freedom?of?Information?Act?with?no?redactions,?which?brings?into?question?why?
they?were?originally?stamped?as?needing?to?be?withheld?from?the?public.??Was?it?“because?public?officials?
might?be?embarrassed?by?disclosure”???Was?it?“because?errors?and?failures?might?be?revealed”???Or?was?it?
“because?of?speculative?or?abstract?fears”???
?
Also?contained?on?Enclosure?9?are?fifteen?documents?which?were?marked?“Official?Use?Only?–?Security?
Related?Information”?but?have?since?been?released?with?redactions?claiming?Exemption?7(F).?Even?if?the?
redactions?implemented?in?response?to?FOIA?Exemption?7(F)?were?in?fact?necessary,?under?the?
President’s?and?Attorney?General’s?guidance?these?documents?should?have?still?been?voluntarily?shared?
in?a?redacted?form?prior?to?the?submittal?of?a?FOIA?request.??Additionally,?there?are?six?documents?listed?
which?I?could?not?find?electronically,?and?sixty?documents?which?are?internally?in?ADAMS?but,?despite?
Mr.?Koberstein’s?and?Mr.?Riccio’s?requests,?are?still?non?public.??Note?that?these?non?public?documents?
consist?of?formal?correspondence?between?the?NRC?and?a?licensee?on?a?significant?safety?concern,?
internal?NRC?formal?memos,?internal?NRC?analysis?reports,?Power?Point?presentations,?etc.??It?is?my?
position?that?we?should?not?wait?for?Freedom?of?Information?Act?requests?to?release?these?documents;?
we?should?follow?the?President’s?and?Attorney?General’s?guidance?and?take?“affirmative?steps?to?make?
information?public”?by?posting?these?documents?“online?in?advance?of?any?public?request”?in?order?to?
“use?modern?technology?to?inform?citizens?about?what?is?known?and?done?by?their?Government”.?
?
It?is?impossible?for?the?public?to?ask?for?documents?on?an?issue?when?they?do?not?even?know?that?the?
issue?exists.??By?designating?the?flooding?hazard?posed?by?Jocassee?Dam?as?“Security?Related?
Information”,?the?Office?of?Nuclear?Reactor?Regulation?(NRR)?was?able?to?successfully?keep?this?issue?
from?public?scrutiny?for?over?five?years?–?until?the?March?2012?public?release?of?the?highly?redacted?
screening?report?for?GI?204?by?the?Office?of?Nuclear?Regulatory?Research?(RES)?brought?this?issue?to?the?
attention?of?intervener?groups.??Once?these?groups?realized?this?issue?existed,?they?desired?information?
on?it.??Was?it?right?for?the?NRC?to?keep?this?important?safety?concern?from?the?public?for?so?long???Is?that?
what?President?Obama?expects?of?us???I?do?not?profess?to?be?able?to?read?the?President’s?mind.??But?I?do?
profess?to?be?able?to?read?and?understand?English.??And?the?memo?the?President?released?on?his?
4
inauguration?day?regarding?the?Freedom?of?Information?Act?is?very?concisely?and?clearly?written?in?plain?
English.??The?President?expects?Open?Government.??If?there?is?truly?a?security?concern?with?some?of?the?
information?regarding?the?Jocassee/Oconee?issue,?then?the?President?expects?us?to?specifically?withhold?
those?pieces?of?sensitive?information?that?might?enable?terrorists?to?defeat?our?security?defenses.??But?I?
do?not?believe?the?President?expected?us?to?withhold,?in?its?entirety,?a?significant?safety?issue?from?the?
American?people?for?over?half?a?decade.??
