UNDERGROUND STORAGE OF LOW LEVEL RADIOACTIVE WASTES AT THE SAVANNAH RIVER PLANT. ENGINEERING CONSIDERATIONS
Description: The engineering considerations are given on which the design and construction of tanks for the storage of low-level radioactive waste solutions were based. The tanks have a nominal capacity of 1,300,000 gal each. While conforming to the principle of total confinement, these tanks were built at a considerably lower cost than the tarks designed for storing high-level radioactive wastes. This saving was brought abeut by the elimination of a number of features such as cooling coils and the angular space and secondary saucer container around the tank. (auth)
