Title: Lessons from the Bevatron Accelerator Demolition - 12191

Abstract

The Bevatron accelerator at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory is the first DOE accelerator to be demolished. While there are many lessons learned from its demolition, this paper focuses on the following lessons learned that may be useful for other D and D projects: bounding project scope to ensure success, hazards mapping for focused characterization and remediation, establishing radiological evaluation criteria, and forecasting activation products. With D and D of many DOE accelerators likely to occur in the near future, these lessons learned should be considered in planning those projects. These lessons learned are likely to be applicable to other D and D projects as well. (authors)
