Series Description: This 1986 report summarizes the history of the White Oak Creek watershed after the White Oak Dam was constructed and the laboratory and disposal activities which have contributed cesium and other radionuclides and contaminants to the area. Monitoring data from earlier research, remedial action activities, and further research recommendations are discussed. Monitoring and concentration data for groundwater, lake sediment, stream bed gravel, soil, and aquatic and terrestrial biota are measured in picocuries per gram and curies for cesium-137 (pCi/g, Ci). Monitoring data may also include a date, location, and sample type, including soil, vegetation, and various animals.
