Title: Environmental monitoring report, United States Energy Research and Development Administration, Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant: calendar year 1975

Abstract

Air, water, soil and grass in the vicinity of the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant were continuously or periodically sampled during 1975. Analyses for materials known to be in plant effluents were made to provide effluent control information and to determine compliance with applicable air and water quality standards. Two of the steam plant boilers have been reconverted to coal/oil firing due to the energy crisis. Particulates are removed from the stack gas by mechanical collectors which are about 80 percent efficient. A project is under way to fully meet particulate emission standards by the installation of electrostatic precipitators. Compliance with sulfur oxide emission standards is planned by the procurement and use of low sulfur coal. A project is currently under way to upgrade the incinerator scrubber to meet particulate emission limitations. The incinerator was removed from service in 1974 because visible emissions appeared to violate opacity standards.
