Title: Environmental Implementation Plan

Abstract

Environmental protection is an integral part of SRS`s emergency-response planning because spills or releases of hazardous substances can spread offsite, causing exposure to people and degradation of the environment. The ability to respond to an unplanned release of a hazardous substance requires that the site have the capability to: rapidly determine and report the occurrence; rapidly assess the potential effects; immediately notify responsible authorities; institute monitoring and mitigation activities. To accomplish these objectives, SRS (Savannah River Site) maintains real-time data-acquisition models to accurately predict plume movement with time, and well-thought out and rehearsed response plans. This section covers the emergency-response activities that involve detection, notification, characterization, and definition of the extent and affect of a release.
