High Level Waste Tank Closure Modeling with Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Waste removal from 49 underground storage tanks located in two tank farms involves three steps: bulk waste removal, water washing to remove residual waste, and in some cases chemical cleaning to remove additional residual waste. Not all waste can be completely removed by these processes-resulting in some residual waste loading following cleaning. Completely removing this residual waste would be prohibitively expensive; therefore, it will be stabilized by filling the tanks with grout. Acceptable residual waste loading inventories were determined using one-dimensional groundwater transport modeling to predict future human exposure based on several scenarios. These modeling results have been incorporated into ... continued below

These modeling results have been incorporated into a geographic information systems (GIS) application for rapid evaluation of various tank closure options.
