The disruption of a homogeneous reactor is considered and various palliative measures suggested for the control of the resultant released activity. Under a set of conservative assumptions the ingested activity at Chattanooga, without TVA aid, is computed to be 2.4 uc of mixed fission products of which 5.5 x 10(-7) uc would be radiostrontium. This amount is shown emergency tolerable and a summary of White Oak Lake activity releases and a TVA sample control plan are appended. Tables are included.
