Integrating Modeling and Monitoring for the Radioactive Waste Management Complex

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

United States Department of Energy Order 435.1, Radioactive Waste Management, includes requirements for assessing the long-term performance of radioactive waste disposal facilities and also for environmental monitoring of the performance of those facilities throughout the time of institutional control. It is also specified that performance assessment and composite analysis modeling should be integrated with environmental monitoring in order to provide a means to assess the adequacy of the assumptions that were made for the modeling. This paper describes the development of action levels, which are expected concentrations at different locations in the subsurface based on modeling conducted for the performance ... continued below

Description

United States Department of Energy Order 435.1, Radioactive Waste Management, includes requirements for assessing the long-term performance of radioactive waste disposal facilities and also for environmental monitoring of the performance of those facilities throughout the time of institutional control. It is also specified that performance assessment and composite analysis modeling should be integrated with environmental monitoring in order to provide a means to assess the adequacy of the assumptions that were made for the modeling. This paper describes the development of action levels, which are expected concentrations at different locations in the subsurface based on modeling conducted for the performance assessment and composite analysis for the low-level waste disposal facility at the Radioactive Waste Management Complex at the Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory. First year comparisons of measured concentrations with the action level have shown that migration appears to be occurring at a much lower rate than predicted by the models. This supports the conclusion that the modeling is conservative and conclusions based on the modeling are likewise conservative.
