RADIOLOGICAL SURVEY OF PUGET SOUND NAVAL SHIPYARD BREMERTON, WASHINGTON, AND ENVIRONS

The Eastern Environmental Radiation Facility (EERF) of the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in cooperation with the U. S. Naval Ship Systems command (NAVSHIPS) has conducted radiological surveillance programs in a number of ports which serve nuclear-powered vessels. These studies were begun in 1963 and have been conducted at ports on the East, West, and Gulf Coasts of the Continental United States and in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. These studies were undertaken to determine if nuclear-powered vessel operations, including berthing, repair, and servicing, had resulted in environmental radioactivity levels which could contribute a detectable radiation exposure to the public. The survey of the harbor at Bremerton, Washington, in October 1974, was the latest in this series.
