MIDDLETOWN, Pa. (AP)-The
operators of the crippled Three Mile
Island nuclear power plant began
purging a tiny amount of radioactive
gas into the atmosphere yesterday, a
preliminary step to the first human
visit inside the contaminated reactor
building since the March 1979 accident.
Officials said the release would not
pose any danger to the public.
The purging process involves an
airlock that leads to the interior of the
containment building. Operators said it
will take about three days to remove a
trace of radioactive krypton from the 9-
by-12-foot airlock so a team of workers

airlock to make various radiation
measurements. They will be able to
pinpoint , radiation inside the
containment building by holding a
device up to the interior airlock door.
It will be another three to four weeks
before workers can go through the
airlock and into the containment
building. That step will involve the
release of a larger amount of krypton.
Nevertheless, the amount is expected
to be well below the levels normally
discharged by an operating nuclear plant.
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission
has yet to approve the release of the
larger amount of krypton gas.
AN OFFICIAL of the firm hired to do
an audit of the plant said in testimony
filed yesterday that the plant is not
being cleaned up fast enough.
Perry Wheaton, a partner with4
Theodore Barry and Associates of New
York, said General Public Utilities and
its subisidiary, Metropolitan Edison,
may have not devoted enough
resources to the recovery effort.
"We believe the company has limited
its clean-up efforts because of its
deteriorating financial condition,"
Wheaton said in testimony filed with
the Public Utility Commission, which
hired the auditors.
Wheaton said the parent utility, thel
state utility commission and the
Nuclear Regulatory Commission
should take the lead in speeding up the
plant cean-up-even if it means
charging customers more for
Wheaton said an interim $55 million
rate increase granted last month to Met
Ed "represents a minimal level of rate
relief and will need to be augmented
by further rate increases."
The testimony from the auditing firm
is based on preliminary work on the
nine-month, $775,000 manageme'nt
audit, which will be done by next fall. It
is part of the second phase of state
utility commission hearings on Three
Mile Island, aimed at determining
whether Met Ed should stay in business
and how much money it should earn.
