This report contains all known uranium and other radionuclide discharges from the Y-12 Plant. The information has been compiled from routine accountability reports, environmental and radiological monitoring data, estimates of discards (using calculational methods where firm data was not available), and any other means appropriate to locating information on discards. This report also includes data on thorium, U-233, technetium, neptunium, and other very small quantities of radionuclides (plutonium, cesium, cobalt, ruthenium, niobium) in receipts of special nuclear material--particularly the uranyl nitrate solutions from the Savannah River Plant (SRP) and uranium oxide from the Idaho Chemical Processing Plant. Tables and figures are included.
