REPORT ON RADIOACTIVE-WASTE PACKAGING
The processing and disposal of radioactive ion-exchange resins is described. These resins become radioactive as a result of being used in treating the primary coolant water of the N.S. Savannah. It is concluded that after appropriate processing by the Nuclear Servicing Vessel, the radioactive resin shall be packaged in containers suitable for disposal at sea in regions where water depths exceed 1000 fathoms.
