Cleaning Up Sites Contaminated with Radioactive Materials: International Workshop Proceedings
In summary, following are the enterprise’s top priority problems in resolving environmental problems:
Ensuring safe operation of the special industrial reservoirs
Reducing water balance inputs at the special industrial reservoirs
Improving the stability of Dam P-11
Modernizing the radiochemical plant to reduce the amount of liquid radioactive wastes that it creates
Creating a new phase of the high-level waste vitrification complex
Creating a complex for cementing medium-level wastes so that discharges of medium-level liquid wastes into reservoirs V-9 and V-17 may be completely halted
Carrying out work to remove reservoirs V-9 and V-17 from operation and rehabilitate their sites
Developing technology to put previously accumulated high-level wastes into a form safe for long-term storage
Accomplishing these objectives will facilitate a significant reduction in the environmental impact of Mayak’s ongoing production operations and will minimize the effect of factors created by the enterprise’s previous activities.
