Title: Liquid radwaste in-leakage reduction at TVA's Browns Ferry nuclear plant

Abstract

Early in 1985, Tennessee Valley Authority's (TVA's) Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant (BFNP) decided to initiate a liquid radwaste in-leakage reduction project as part of their chemistry improvement program. The purpose of this project was to reduce the overall volume of water processed by the radwaste system at BFNP by restricting uncontrolled in-leakage through the floor drain system. Impell Corporation was contracted to perform the project, which consisted of several tasks, each design to provide data for the reduction of in-leakage or to reduce the in-leakage directly. The program was begun in March 1985. Buy July of that same year, liquid input to radwaste through the floor drain system had been reduced by --30%.
