     1. A map showing the 12 and 50 mile buffer zones around all four nuclear power plants.




2.   An estimate of the population within 12 miles of each of the 4 plants

     Nuclear Plant                                      Population
     Milestone 1/2/3                                    146,294
     Pilgrim 1                                          102,805
     Vermont Yankee 1                                   43,357
     Seabrook                                           146,017

     I first used the ‘select feature by rectangle’ tool so that I could select each nuclear plant
     individually to get the population statistics within 12 miles. Then I used the ‘select by
     location’ tool to select the census data within 12 miles of the selected nuclear power plant.
     Next, I went to the attribute table of the census data, to population data, and statistics to get
     the selected population numbers. This was repeated for each power plant.
  3. Below are the total population and total households within 50 miles of ALL 4 power
     plants. I used the ‘select by location’ tool to select the census tracts within 50 miles of all
     4 power plants. I used the statistics tool in the attribute table to get the sums.

  Nuclear Plant                     Population                     Total Households
  All 4 nuclear power plants        10,544,534                     4,074,875

  4. The hospitals I chose are within a 50 mile drive of the Vermont Yankee 1 power plant.
     The total number of hospitals selected and total count of beds is at the bottom of the table.

  I accessed this list by Network Analyst Tool to create a layer depicting an area that is within
  a 50 mile drive of all the individual power plants. Once this layer was created I first
  ‘selected by location’ the roads that were a 50 mile drive from just the Vermont Yankee 1
  power plant (ID == 4). Then I ‘selected by location’ from the selected layer the emergency
  hospitals (short term and critical condition hospitals) that were easily accessed from these
  roads, which I defined as within 1 mile. I exported the table to excel and summed the total
  number of beds.


                                                                                                       # of
             Hospital Name                       Address            Town          State Zip Code       beds

  5. Below are the list of schools that are within a 12 mile buffer zone of the Vermont Yankee
     1 power plant (ID == 4). I accessed this list by first selecting the Vermont Yankee 1
     power plant, then going to the ‘select by location’ tool and selecting schools that were
     within 12 miles of the selected feature. Then I exported the selected items from the
     attribute table into excel.
