Radioactive discharges and environmental monitoring: annual report for 1992

Technical Report:

Abstract

This report provides information on disposal of radioactive waste from Harwell and on associated environmental monitoring for the calendar year 1992. In most instances information has also been provided on measurements made in previous years to show the 1992 results in their historical perspective. Some new data have been included in this year`s report including results from the analysis of various environmental media, such as grass, rainwater, fish and flora. In addition, there are appended sections dealing with groundwater monitoring and prescribed processes carried out under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 (EPA). The National Radiological Protection Board, (NRPB) currently recommends a primary dose limit for individual members of the public of 1 mSv per year from sources other than natural background radiation. Operations of a single site such as Harwell should give rise to a dose of no more than 0.5 mSv per year. No member of the public is judged to have exceeded this dose as a consequence of discharges made in 1992. Throughout this report discharge measurements have been assessed against derived limits corresponding to a dose of 0.5 mSv, consistent with NRPB advice. Revised atmospheric and liquid discharge authorisations granted by the Authorising Departments (HMIP and MAFF)  More>>
