Radioactive effluents in Savannah River. Summary Report for 1995

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

During 1995, the radioactive effluents in the Savannah River were generally lower but comparable to those observed during the earlier years of these studies, being orders of magnitude below DOE and EPA/CFR guide levels. Vogtle has only one notable effluent release in 1995. In earlier year, Vogtle effluents had been dominated by {sub 58}Co; however, in 1995 {sub 60}Co exhibited the overall maximum at 1.31 pCi/L, which is almost three times larger than the previous {sub 60}Co maximum of 0.49 pCi/L observed in 1988. By comparison, the {sub 58}Co maximum was 0.46 pCi/L, which was lower than its maxima in ... continued below

Vogtle has only one notable effluent release in 1995. In earlier year, Vogtle effluents had been dominated by {sub 58}Co; however, in 1995 {sub 60}Co exhibited the overall maximum at 1.31 pCi/L, which is almost three times larger than the previous {sub 60}Co maximum of 0.49 pCi/L observed in 1988. By comparison, the {sub 58}Co maximum was 0.46 pCi/L, which was lower than its maxima in earlier years. In addition to {sub 58}Co and {sub 60}Co, Vogtle activities of {sub 54}Mn, {sub 57}Co, {sub 95}Nb, and {sub 95}Zr were observed. The above activities were observed from samples just downstream of Vogtle, but these samples were discontinued in October due to funding priorities. In addition, {sub 137}Cs was detected, but its levels are consistent with known SRS sources. The maximum for {sub 137}Cs was 49 fCi/L at Highway 301 Bridge.
