Title: Sr$sup 90$ MONITORING AT THE SAVANNAH RIVER PLANT

Abstract

Radioassays of milk, soil, grass, and other material located near the Savannah River Plant showed no detectable Sr/sup 90/ due to plant wastes. These assays indicated that the Sr/sup 90/ found in this geographical area (25-mile radius of SRP) was nuclear weapons debris. Sr/sup 90/ was separated from milk by absorption on cation exchange resin. An extraction technique was used in assaying Sr/sup 90/ in all types of samples. Cs/sup 137//Sr/sup 90/ ratios were found to be constant in soil samples. (auth)
