2004 Annual Summary Report for the Area 3 and Area 5 Radioactive Waste Management Sites at the Nevada Test Site, Nye County, Nevada

Description: The Maintenance Plan for the Performance Assessments and Composite Analyses for the Area 3 and Area 5 Radioactive Waste Management Sites at the Nevada Test Site (Bechtel Nevada, 2000) requires an annual review to assess the adequacy of the performance assessments (PAs) and composite analyses (CAs) for each of the facilities, and reports the results in an annual summary report to the U.S. Department of Energy Headquarters. The Disposal Authorization Statements for the Area 3 and Area 5 Radioactive Waste Management Sites (RWMSs) also require that such reviews be made and that secondary or minor unresolved issues be tracked and addressed as part of the maintenance plan (U.S. Department of Energy [DOE]). The U.S. Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration Nevada Site Office performed annual reviews in fiscal year (FY) 2004 by evaluating operational factors and research results that impact the continuing validity of the PA and CA results. This annual summary report presents data and conclusions from the FY 2004 review, and determines the adequacy of the PAs and CAs. Operational factors, such as the waste form and containers, facility design, waste receipts, closure plans, as well as monitoring results and research and development (R&D) activities were reviewed in FY 2004 for the determination of the adequacy of the PAs. Likewise, the environmental restoration activities at the Nevada Test Site relevant to the sources of residual radioactive material that are considered in the CAs, the land-use planning, and the results of the environmental monitoring and R&D activities were reviewed for the determination of the adequacy of the CAs.

Ground Water Test Well A, Nevada Test Site, Nye County, Nevada: A Summary of Lithologic Data, Aquifer

Description: Abstract: "ground-water test well A was drilled to a depth of 1,870 feet with rotary and cable-tool equipment. Only alluvial materials were penetrated. These were saturated below 1,605 feet. Pumping and bailing tests indicate that the minimum transmissibility of the alluvium is about 800 gallons per day per foot. The specific capacity was 1.9 gallons per minute per foot of drawdown after 1 hours of pumping at rates of both 41 and 60 gallons per minute. A suite of geophysical logs, a summary of contract costs, and a detailed description of drilling equipment and casing record are presented."

Ground Water Test Well D, Nevada Test Site, Nye County, Nevada

Description: Introduction: The U.S. Geological Survey is appraising the possibility, however slight, that the ground water beneath the Nevada Test Site, possibly contaminated by nuclear detonations, may carry radioactive fission products to places where they may constitute a public hazard.

Interim Geological Investigations in the U12e.03a and U12e.03b Tunnels, Nevada Test Site, Nye County, Nevada

Description: From introduction: The geologic studies in the Ul2e.03a and Ul2e.03b tunnels were conducted as part of the Geological Survey's investigations for the Vela Uniform program, Project Shade, and were completed for the purpose of 1) determining the preshot lithologic, structural, and chemical and physical properties of the tuffs exposed in the tunnels for comparison wits postshot geologic data, and 2) evaluating these data in order to predict the geologic effects of the planned nuclear explosion at tie end of the tunnels.

Interim Geological Investigations in the U12b.08 Tunnel, Nevada Test Site, Nye County, Nevada

Description: From introduction: The geologic studies in the U12b.08 tunnel were conducted by the U. S. Geological Survey on behalf of the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission for the purpose of determining the pre-explosion chemical and physical properties of the tuffs exposed in the tunnel. These data will be used in evaluating the geologic effects of the explosion by comparison with similar post-shot geologic data.

Interim Report on Geologic Investigations of the U12e Tunnel System, Nevada Test Site, Nye County, Nevada

Description: From introduction: The maps and tables comprising this report are being transmitted at this time to provide interested users with a summary of the geology of the Ul2e tunnel system. The system was constructed to provide access to underground test sites. This report contains part of the geologic information obtained from investigations conducted by the U. S. Geological Survey to determine the geologic environment of the underground test sites. Results of geophysical and radiometric surveys, and physical properties are being studied. This work was done on behalf of the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission.
