Planned Disposition of Material in the Savannah River Site High Level Waste System

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Since the early 1950's Savannah River Site (SRS) has received over 100 million gallons of waste into the F and H Tank Farms, commonly known as the High Level Waste System (HLW) system. This waste was neutralized, insoluble sludge settled, and supernate was evaporated to form saltcake such that as of January 2003 only 37 million gallons of waste is stored in F and H tank farm. This waste contains approximately 417 million curies of radioactivity and includes approximately 3 million gallons of sludge and 34 million gallons of salt waste. Additionally, 5 million curies have already been dispositioned by ... continued below

Description

Since the early 1950's Savannah River Site (SRS) has received over 100 million gallons of waste into the F and H Tank Farms, commonly known as the High Level Waste System (HLW) system. This waste was neutralized, insoluble sludge settled, and supernate was evaporated to form saltcake such that as of January 2003 only 37 million gallons of waste is stored in F and H tank farm. This waste contains approximately 417 million curies of radioactivity and includes approximately 3 million gallons of sludge and 34 million gallons of salt waste. Additionally, 5 million curies have already been dispositioned by the Defense Waste Processing Facility (DWPF) into glass canisters. The Accelerated Clean-up Plan (ACP)1 will result in the acceleration of risk reduction by emptying HLW tanks sooner, shipping HLW glass canisters and Transuranic Waste (TRU) to their geologic repositories sooner and decommissioning the F Canyon facilities and other excess facilities sooner. This document discusses the planned disposition of the material currently stored in the HLW System.
