This correspondence contains an executive summary of the 1985 Streambed Contaminant Survey (WOC & T). The objectives of the survey were to provide a basis for ranking corrective measures projects and to facilitate identification of sites where further studies are needed to characterize contaminant migration. It includes a summary of the active and inactive sources of radionuclides in 1985, recommendations on waste area groupings (WAGs) that clearly will require remedial investigation/feasibility studies (RI/FS) projects under RCRA 3004 (u) provisions, and a ranking for WAGs that is based upon magnitude of releases observed for the July - August 1985 period. An important assumption is that presence of radionuclide migration is indicative of general contaminant releases. A figure of the survey sampling sites is included.
