Title: Determining the Release of Radionuclides from SRS Tank 12H Waste Residual Solids Following Tank Closure

Abstract

Eight High Level Waste (HLW) tanks used to store radioactive waste slurries have been emptied and closed at the Savannah River Site (SRS). Performance Analyses (PA) modeling of the release of radionuclides from residual waste solids in these tanks into the environment over extended time periods indicated the most likely risk drivers for environmental contamination. Radionuclide leaching studies were desired to provide additional information regarding the residual waste solubility assumptions used in the models.
