Savannah operations are reviewed, but focus is on the general site description, including: physical characteristics, geology, seismology, hydrology, climatology, population, water supply, industrial characteristics, agriculture, marine foods, and port environmental surveillance. Consequences of credible accidents are considered, and proposed N.S. Savannah exposure criteria under emergency conditions are also included in an appendix.
