Results of the Tritium Survey of Fourmile Branch and its Seeplines in the F- and H-Areas of SRS: September 1996 and 1989-1996 Trending

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The Environmental Sciences Section (ESS), now known as the Environmental Sciences and Technology Department (ES{ampersand}TD) of the Savannah River Technology Center (SRTC) conducted a quarterly monitoring program of the Fourmile Branch (FMB) stream and its associated seepline located down gradient from the F- and H-Area Seepage Basins beginning May 1992 and ending in May 1995. The quarterly tritium survey was changed to a semi-annual schedule in 1996. This report details the results of the second semi-annual event in 1996 and summarizes the tritium data beginning with the baseline 1989 and 1992 sampling events. The primary focus of this program is ... continued below

Description

The Environmental Sciences Section (ESS), now known as the Environmental Sciences and Technology Department (ES{ampersand}TD) of the Savannah River Technology Center (SRTC) conducted a quarterly monitoring program of the Fourmile Branch (FMB) stream and its associated seepline located down gradient from the F- and H-Area Seepage Basins beginning May 1992 and ending in May 1995. The quarterly tritium survey was changed to a semi-annual schedule in 1996. This report details the results of the second semi-annual event in 1996 and summarizes the tritium data beginning with the baseline 1989 and 1992 sampling events. The primary focus of this program is to measure and track changes in tritium levels. Specific conductivity and pH were also measured and tracked. The measurements from this survey (September 1996) exhibited similar tritium levels, conductivity measurements, and pH values to data from the previous tritium surveys. The results of this tritium survey and stream monitoring data (Looney et al., 1993) indicate that the tritium plume resulting from the past operation of the seepage basins continues to flush from the seeplines and wetlands to Fourmile Branch. The overall summary results indicate that the tritium plumes are surfacing in somewhat localized areas along the F-Area and 643-E seeplines.
