Abstract

Work conducted this quarter consisted of continuing the detailed data and information acquisition; review of the received document contents, and interpretation of significance in light of previous DOE documents. Much of the effort was devoted to reconciling inconsistencies and contradictions in both the primary data bases and in and among the DOE published documents. These review and reconciliation efforts included regular telephone and e-mail correspondence, as well as in-person discussions with DOE NVO personnel at the April DOE Generator Conference in Las Vegas. Reconciliation efforts continued with frequent (daily) exchanges on the inventory data sets, and the engineering descriptions of the Area 5 RWMS cells. These activities directly support the more specific listing of activities that was developed previously, and for which DOE provided a confirmatory note to HRC in March. These efforts also reconfirm the earlier observation that there have been significant changes in data, methodologies, and baseline assumptions over the past four years since NRAMP 1.

These reflect the changing conditions at the NTS RWMS and the need for an accurate disposal inventory for post closure safety assessment, and scenario development.
