Title: Unreviewed Composite Analysis Question Evaluation: Update of Composite Analysis Sources Potentially Interacting with the Area 5 Radioactive Waste Management Site, Nevada National Security Site, Nye County, Nevada

Abstract

This unreviewed composite analysis question evaluation (UCAQE) assesses the impacts of the FFACO corrective actions on the Area 5 RWMS CA and the need to revise or update the CA Federal Facility Agreement and Consent Order (FFACO). The FFACO, a legal agreement among the NNSA/NFO, the state of Nevada, and the U.S. Department of Defense, establishes a process to identify, characterize, and implement corrective actions for historical sites on the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS) contaminated with hazardous or radioactive materials. Review of FFACO corrective actions involving sources of residual radioactive contamination potentially interacting with the Area 5 RWMS indicates that no significant changes affecting CA results and conclusions have occurred. Doses from the Area 5 RWMS, Industrial Sites, and Soils sites are a small fraction of the 0.3 mSv CA dose constraint, and significant interactions with releases from the Area 5 RWMS are unlikely. Doses from FFACO CASs, including UGTA sites, can be controlled by FFACO URs and institutional controls that have been implemented since the CA was prepared. As the interactions between the Area 5 RWMS and the FFACO CASs are negligible, the sites can be managed independently. The Area 5 RWMS CA reached the same conclusions aboutmore » the interaction of the Area 5 RWMS with other sources of residual contamination. Therefore, there is no need to revise or update the Area 5 RWMS CA.« less
