Title: Public health assessment for US DOE Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant, Piketon, Pike County, Ohio, region 5. Cerclis No. OH7890008983. Final report

Abstract

The Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant is near the Village of Piketon in rural South-central Ohio. The plant enriches uranium in the chemical form of uranium hexaflouride concentrations on-site and off are similar to those found throughout South-Central Ohio, and therefore do not indicate any history of uranium releases. There appears to be no off-site threat to public health from any site activity or release. ATSDR found off-site contamination was not at levels that could cause adverse health effects. Radiation measurements off-site did not exceed normal variations in background for the region.
