Groundwater Monitoring at Three Oak Ridge National Laboratory [ORNL] Inactive Waste Impoundments Reports, October 1986, March 1989
Originating Office: Nuclear-Chemical Waste Programs, Environmental Sciences Division
Finding Aids: Document center databases
Series Description: These reports summarize the results of groundwater analyses at three sites at ORNL, which were conducted to determine the migration potential of contaminants from the sites to area groundwater. The three sites under surveillance were: 1) 3513 Impoundment; 2) Old Hydrofracture Facility; and 3) Homogeneous Reactor Experiment No. 2 Impoundment. Samples were collected from monitoring wells installed in 1985 and analyzed on a quarterly basis for parameters under Resource Conservation and Recovery Act [RCRA] compliance. The report describes the three sites; the locations and construction of the monitoring wells; sample collection, preservation, and custody procedures; test parameters; methods of analysis; statistical procedures; and the results from each site. The report offers a general summary and conclusions, and the appendix lays out the contaminant concentrations found. It lists the parameter, well number, maximum, minimum, and mean concentration levels, and the regulated concentration limit where applicable. Cesium readings are measured in becquerels per liter (Bq/l).
