Title: UNDERGROUND STORAGE OF LOW LEVEL RADIOACTIVE WASTES AT THE SAVANNAH RIVER PLANT. ENGINEERING CONSIDERATIONS

Abstract

The engineering considerations are given on which the design and construction of tanks for the storage of low-level radioactive waste solutions were based. The tanks have a nominal capacity of 1,300,000 gal each. While conforming to the principle of total confinement, these tanks were built at a considerably lower cost than the tarks designed for storing high-level radioactive wastes. This saving was brought abeut by the elimination of a number of features such as cooling coils and the angular space and secondary saucer container around the tank. (auth)
