This document contains a table with the results of an analysis of the weekly composite Clinch River samples which were collected at the ORGDP water filtration plant intake by ORGDP personnel for ORNL. (MPC)w values for the mixture have been calculated and are included in this table. Also enclosed are tables containing the dilution factors in the Clinch River during the period 1/28/62 - 2/25/62 and the radiochemical analysis of White Oak Lake effluent, February 1962. The percent of maximum permissible concentration in the river was not significantly different from last month. A total of 217 curies of radioactivity was discharged over White Oak Dam during this period.
