Abstract

A more systematic approach to siting low-level radioactive waste disposal facilities would include (1) use of regional geologic information to locate areas of complex geology and aquifers susceptible to contamination by low-level radioactive leachates; and (2) design of an exploratory program for characterization of geologic materials and hydrology that would minimize the number of exploratory borings while providing the data needed for determining site suitability. Regional geologic screening can be used to exclude areas of potentially unsuitable hydrogeology.
