RADIOACTIVE WASTE DISPOSAL SYSTEM
PERIODIC RADIATION MONITORING SURVEY
CORE I, SEED 1
To determine periodically the radiation level of all permanently installed mon-
itored points in the Radioactive Waste Disposal Plant and the effectiveness of
shielding facilities in working areas at times during which the radiati on .level
is above limits set up by Health Physics.
The radiation level in all areas surveyed was less than 5 mr/hr which is the
Health Physics limitation for the Radioactive Waste Disposal Area0 Any area
with a level above 5 mr/hr is a controlled access area posted with warning
Description of Test Equipment and Test Procedure
The radiation levels at all monitored points in the Radioactive Waste Disposal Plant
were obtained from the Radioactive Waste Disposal Monitoring Panel and installed
14FRISKER" stations. A radiation survey of the Radioactive Waste Disposal Plant was
made using a Thyac survey meter (0-20 mr/hr)0 The activity level of material
which was burned was measured before and after burning. A survey of the incinerator
area and the readings of the air samples from the Incinerator Room were taken
before, during, and after incinerator operation. Part VI-E of the test could not
be performed because there were no drumming operations during the test, Parts
VI-D and VI-H of the test procedure were not performed because there were no
areas of high activity and the activity level in the respective tanks was not
high during normal operation.
DLCS 1690202, Radioactive Waste Disposal-System Periodic Radiation Monitoring
Survey, (T-6'12075), was performed on November 2, 1959 with exception of the
incinerator operation portion (Part VI-F-G) which was performed on November 5,
1959. There. were no drumming operations because no drums were available for
Two of the five Frisker Stations were being repaired. The other three were in
