Description / Abstract:

This standard applies to those radioactive liquid wastes in aqueous form (hereinafter referred to as liquid wastes) that are capable of being immobilized upon placement in a receptacle for transportation. The principles and procedures described in this standard apply specifically to those liquid wastes produced in light-water nuclear power plants and shipped to commercial burial grounds. Most liquid radioactive wastes generated as a result of the operation of light-water reactors fall into the classification of low specific activity (LSA); therefore this classification is noted in a number of sections. It is not the intention of this standard to limit its applicability to LSA wastes. This standard may also be useful and applicable to other liquid wastes from other sources and, where appropriate, is recommended for guidance in preparing those wastes for shipment. Typical types of liquid waste envisioned as being covered by this standard include, but are not limited to, sodium sulfate regenerative solutions, evaporator concentrates, aqueous chemical wastes, aqueous decontamination solutions, reverse osmosis concentrates, and filter backwash liquids. This standard does not apply to wastes such as resins, organic solvents, lubricating oils, and crystalized regenerative solutions.
