The PATHRAE-EPA model is used to assess the maximum annual dose to a critical population group (maximum CPG dose) resulting from the disposal of below regulatory concern (BRC) wastes. The model is expanded from the PRESTO-EPA-CPG and PRESTO-EPA-BRC models emphasizing two areas: (1) the addition of specific radionuclide exposure pathways pertaining to onsite workers during disposal operation, to offsite personnel after site closure, and to reclaimers and inadvertent intruders after site closure; and (2) the simplification of the sophiscated dynamic submodels to a quasi-steady state submodels so that the computation time can be greatly reduced and enable the model to be executed on a personal computer.
