Title: Diffuse and fugitive radionuclide emissions assessment for the Hanford Site

Abstract

On February 7, 1994 a Federal Facility Compliance Agreement (FFCA) was signed by the Department of Energy Richland Operations and the US Environmental Protection Agency, EPA, Region 10. The FFCA defines the actions needed to bring the Hanford Site into compliance with 40 Code of Federal Regulations Part 61 Subpart H. One of the milestones specified by the FFCA was that the Hanford Site is to provide EPA with a copy of the Federal Clean Air Act Title V operating air permit application and Air Emission Inventory (AEI) concurrent with its submission to the Washington State Department of Ecology. The AEI includes a dose assessment of the radionuclide emissions from diffuse and unmonitored sources at the Hanford Site. This paper describes how the dose assessment was performed using upwind and downwind radionuclide air concentration measurements. The paper also describes results from two diffuse and fugitive emissions studies. The studies were performed at several diffuse and fugitive emissions sites and utilized arrays of upwind and downwind low volume (2 cfm) air samplers. One study also utilized 4 high volume (40 cfm) PM{sub 10} air samplers to sample during high wind conditions.
