Description

This report documents the Bechtel BWXT Idaho, LCC, operated facilities at the Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory that require the Best Available Technology selection process in accordance with Department of Energy Order 5400.5, Chapter II (3), “Management and Control of Radioactive Materials in Liquid Discharges.”1 This report differs from previous reports in that only those liquid waste streams and facilities requiring the Best Available Technology selection process will be evaluated in detail. In addition, this report will be submitted to the DOE-ID Field Office Manager for approval in accordance with DOE Order 5400.5, Chapter II, Section 3.b.(1). The report ... continued below

Description

This report documents the Bechtel BWXT Idaho, LCC, operated facilities at the Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory that require the Best Available Technology selection process in accordance with Department of Energy Order 5400.5, Chapter II (3), “Management and Control of Radioactive Materials in Liquid Discharges.”1 This report differs from previous reports in that only those liquid waste streams and facilities requiring the Best Available Technology selection process will be evaluated in detail. In addition, this report will be submitted to the DOE-ID Field Office Manager for approval in accordance with DOE Order 5400.5, Chapter II, Section 3.b.(1). The report also identifies facilities addressed in last year’s report that do not require the Best Available Technology selection process to be completed. These facilities will not be addressed in future reports. This report reviews the following facilities: • Auxiliary Reactor Area • Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory Block Areas • Central Facilities Area • Idaho Nuclear Technology and Engineering Center • Idaho Falls Facilities • Power Burst Facility • Radioactive Waste Management Complex • Test Area North • Test Reactor Area. Three facilities (Central Facilities Area Sewage Treatment Plant, Idaho Nuclear Technology and Engineering Center Percolation Ponds and Test Area North/Technical Support Facility Disposal Pond) at the Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory required documentation of the Best Available Technology selection process. The Idaho Nuclear Technology and Engineering Center Percolation Ponds and Test Area North/Technical Support Facility Disposal Pond discharge wastewater that may contain process-derived radionuclides to a soil column with average radionuclide concentrations below drinking water MCLs. At the request of the Department of Energy Idaho Operations Office, Bechtel BWXT Idaho, LLC has included the 73.5acre Central Facilities Area Sewage Treatment Plant land application site in Section 4 (Facilities Requiring BAT) of this report to ensure the requirements of DOE Order 5400.5, Chapter II, Section 3 are met. The Central Facilities Area Sewage Treatment Plant effluent may contain process-derived radionuclides. However, the average concentrations of these radionuclides are below MCLs.According to DOE guidance, “If the liquid waste stream is below MCLs, this indicates that the goals of the Best Available Technology selection process are being met and the liquid waste stream is considered clean water. However, it is necessary to document this through the Best Available Technology selection process”.
