Title: 1990 Effluent and environmental monitoring report for the Bettis Atomic Power Laboratory

Abstract

The results of the radiological and non-radiological environmental monitoring programs for 1990 at the Bettis Laboratory are presented. The results obtained from the monitoring programs demonstrate that the existing procedures ensured that any environmental releases during 1990 were in accordance with applicable Federal and State regulations except for one minor instance which was reported to federal and state regulators where the site's National Pollutant Discharge Elimination system (NPDES) water discharge permit limit for visible foam was exceeded for a short period of time. This instance is more fully discussed in the report. Evaluation of the environmental data indicates that operation of the Laboratory continues to have no adverse effect on the quality of the environment. A conservative assessment of radiation exposure to the general public as a result of Laboratory operations demonstrated that the dose received by any member of the public was well below the most restrictive dose limits given by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy. 22 refs., 6 figs., 14 tabs.
