The increased amount of activity discharged from the Settling Basin during the last three weeks as reported in this document has raised the specific activity level of the White Oak Dam effluent by a factor of approximately two. If this high rate of activity discharge from the Settling Basin is maintained, the average concentration in the Clinch River below White Oak Creek is expected to remain above the maximum permissible concentration. Deviaition from the previous week is plus 101.9 percent and plus 105.9 percent from the previous four weeks.
