Source Term Determination For P Area Reactor Groundwater Operable Unit

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A review of historical documents has been conducted to identify potential sources of contamination to the P Area Reactor Groundwater Operable Unit. Both classified and unclassified documents repositories at the Savannah River Site were searched. The results of the historical document review indicated the principal sources of groundwater contamination are associated with routine operating practices over the operating life of the P Reactor facilities. The document search did not find any major abnormal release events/accidents that would have caused a substantial release to the ground surface or surface water bodies. Steel Creek and the Reactor Seepage Basins were the primary ... continued below

A review of historical documents has been conducted to identify potential sources of contamination to the P Area Reactor Groundwater Operable Unit. Both classified and unclassified documents repositories at the Savannah River Site were searched. The results of the historical document review indicated the principal sources of groundwater contamination are associated with routine operating practices over the operating life of the P Reactor facilities. The document search did not find any major abnormal release events/accidents that would have caused a substantial release to the ground surface or surface water bodies. Steel Creek and the Reactor Seepage Basins were the primary discharge points of radioactive contamination. Potential organic solvent sources could be associated with the 704-P maintenance shop and reactor operations. Review of geologic investigations prior to construction of the reactor, indicate zones of potential preferential flow in the Lower Aquifer Zone of the Upper Three Runs Aquifer. Contaminated water intersecting these zones would potentially be transported at a faster rate than the surrounding formation.
