Draft Report on Conducting Radiological Performance Assessments for LLRW Disposal in Pennsylvania

[27 Pa.B. 2863]

   The draft technical guidance report titled ''Conducting Radiological Performance Assessment for LLRW Disposal in Pennsylvania'' is available for public inspection and comment. Comments from the public will be accepted until July 14, 1997.

   The regulations in Title 25 of the Pennsylvania Code, Chapter 236, ''Low-Level Radioactive Waste Management and Disposal,'' identify the need for performance assessment in developing and licensing a low-level radioactive waste (LLRW) disposal facility. Although the regulations address general aspects of performance assessment, they do not discuss the associated technical complexities and issues.

   This report addresses radiation exposures that the public could receive from accidental or otherwise unintended releases of radioactive contaminants during and following disposal facility operations, and it addresses radiation exposures that an inadvertent intruder could receive after the facility's institutional control period ends.

   For more information on this report and the Low-Level Radioactive Waste Disposal Facility Siting Program contact Rich Janati, Department of Environmental Protection, Bureau of Radiation Protection, P. O. Box 8469, Harrisburg, PA 17105-8469 at (800) 232-2786 or by e-mail at You can also check out the Low-Level Radioactive Waste Program on the department's World Wide Web Site: (choose information by Environmental Subject; then choose Radiation Protection).
