FIGURE 19-1 Main potentially hazardous nuclear and radiation facilities at Andreev Bay.

NOTE: 1—liquid waste processing building (structure 1); 2—spent fuel dry storage units (vessels 2A, 2B, 3A); 3—former spent fuel storage facility (building 5); 4—radioactive waste storage facility (building 6); 5—solid radioactive waste storage facility (7, 7A, 7B, 7B1, 7G, 7D, 67, 67A), open sites (7V, 7E, collector pipes); 6—stationary dock (structure 32).

to resolve the problems associated with nuclear submarine decommissioning and remediation of the former coastal bases, which came to be referred to as temporary spent fuel and radioactive waste storage sites.

PRESENT CONDITION OF THE INFRASTRUCTURE, SPENT FUEL, AND RADIOACTIVE WASTES

Minatom inherited a troublesome legacy. Practically the entire infrastructure at the facilities was destroyed, including the heat, water, power supply, and sewage systems. Most facilities intended for spent fuel and radioactive waste storage had suffered operational damage and were not being used for their designated purposes. The old and new spent fuel storage facilities were particularly dangerous.
