Title: National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants--Radionuclide Emissions Calendar Year 2014

Abstract

This report is required to document compliance with 40 CFR 61 Subpart H. In 2014, the potential dose from radiological emissions to air, resulting from both current and past NNSS activities, was well below the 10 mrem/yr dose limit. Air sampling data collected at all air monitoring stations had average concentrations of radioactivity that were a fraction of the CL values. Concentrations ranged from 0.2% to a maximum of 8.9% of the allowed NESHAP limit. Because the nearest member of the public resides about 9 kilometers from potential release points on the NNSS, dose to the public would be only a small fraction of the value measured on the NNSS. The potential dose to the public from NLVF emissions was also very low at 0.0000086 mrem/yr, more than six orders of magnitude lower than the 10 mrem/yr limit.
