Discharge Monitoring Report and National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System [NPDES] Effluent Data for the Oak Ridge K-25 Site, February 1992
Originating Office: Environmental Management Division
Finding Aids: Document center databases
Series Description: This report contains the discharge monitoring records for various locations on K-25 for the NPDES. It documents the discharge number, monitoring period, sample type, analysis frequency, and other parameters such as temperature, turbidity, pH, oxygen, and nonradioactive contaminants (e.g., solids, oil, fluorides, lead). One section lists radioactive discharges and their total activity, in picocuries per liter (pCi/l). Those that exceed a certain level are examined for specific radionuclide content (e.g., cesium, tritium, strontium).
