Methods for Estimating Fugitive Air Emissions of Radionuclides from Diffuse Sources at DOE Facilities (PDF)(147 pp, 2 MB,
EPA has worked with the DOE to develop this report to facilitate improved estimation of diffuse source emissions.
Radionuclide NESHAPs: Subpart H Inspection Manual (PDF)(101 pp, 947 K,
The purpose of this manual is to assist an inspector with the inspection of a DOE facility as part of determining compliance with the Environmental Protection Agency's radionuclide NESHAPs standard.
Environmental Monitoring Plan for Airborne Radioactivity from Fugitive and Diffuse Sources, Oak Ridge, Tennessee (PDF)(15 pp, 1 MB,
This document was prepared to outline DOE's plan to use a network of ambient air monitors to confirm that radionuclide emissions from fugitive and diffuse sources, as an aggregate, do not produce off-site atmospheric radionuclide concentrations that significantly contribute to reported radiation doses to the public.
