NS SAVANNAH ANALYSIS OF OPERATION WITH REGARD TO WASTE COLLECTION AND DISPOSAL
Release of radioactivity from the N.S. Savannah is studied in this report. The operation characteristics of the nuclear plant and current waste disposal facilities are evaluated. The effects advantages and disadvantages of various waste processing procedures are outlined. It is pointed out that operation with fuel exposure necessitates extra equipment to that required during operation with no fuel exposure. In this event, a collection system for gaseous activity becomes necessary; liquid wastes must be processed before release and/or environmental dilution must be utilized.
