The report presents the techniques to recover low-level radioactive waste packages from three deep-ocean disposal sites: Atlantic 3800-meter and the Pacific (Farallon Islands) 900-meter. The design of the recovery equipment and its utilization by the submersibles ALVIN and PISCES VI is described. Considerations for future waste disposal and recovery techniques are provided.
