Title: Ants (Hymenoptera:Formicidae) of the Savannah River Plant, South Carolina

Abstract

This report lists each ant species collected on the SRP by habitat and, where determined, the nesting site within a particular habitat. Through the use of baited traps, relative frequencies of foraging ants were determined and listed. A key to the subfamilies and genera of ants occurring on the SRP is included along with illustrations of species representative of the major genera. 10 refs., 32 figs., 2 tabs.

  • BS>The populations and distributions of algae, protozoan fauna, lower invertebrate fauna, insect fauna, and fish species were surveyed in the Savannah River in the vicinity of the Savannah River Plant, in the spring and again in the summer of l960. The river water was also subjected to chemical analysis. The results were compared with the results of 1951-1952, 1955, and 1956 surveys. (T.F.H.)
  • Based on the request of the US Department of Energy, the Centers for Disease Control of the US Department of Health and Human Services organized a panel to review the feasibility and usefulness of conducting further epidemiologic studies of delayed health effects around the Department of Energy's Savannah River Plant. The review and recommendations of the panel were documented in a report entitled Epidemiologic Projects Considered Possible to Undertake in Populations Around the Savannah River Plant. On November 30, 1984, the Department of Energy announced in the Federal Register (49 FR 47095) the conduct of a public meeting and amore » 30-day public comment period between December 1 and December 30, 1984, on the recommendations of the review panel. Based on the requests of individuals and representatives of organizations attending the December 18, 1984, public meetings, the Department of Energy subsequently announced in the Federal Register on December 31, 1984 (49 FR 50767) an extension of the public comment period to January 31, 1985. This report documents the public meeting and comment process, and provides responses to the public comments that were submitted during this process. In addition, this report contains the Department of Energy's position based on the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control review panel and the public comments. 23 refs., 16 tabs.« less
  • Since no archeological remains were uncovered in the proposed DWPF construction area, it is recommended that the area be cleared for archeological purposes. To assure preservation of any buried sites well beneath the present ground surface in the construction area, it is suggested that the Department of Energy arrange to have an archeologist monitor the excavation of the building sites for the DWPF. By monitoring we feel that to keep the construction progress unencumbered a process be devised by which an archeologist makes daily checks of the spoil piles for archeological material. Regarding related construction on the periphery of themore » main construction area (e.g. roads, powerlines, waterlines), it is recommended that the triangle formed by the roads F, 4 and E be cleared for construction of any type for archeological purposes. However, it is recommended that the Department of Energy notify the archeologists to monitor the construction for possible buried sites. Although the site 38AK261 is not considered to be significant to present or future research, it is recommended that an archeologist be notified when construction in that area is to take place in order to monitor any archeological materials uncovered.« less
