The report documents a computer program for evaluating maximum annual doses to members of the critical population group (located close to the disposal site). It can be used for dose estimates for up to 10,000 years following the end of low-level waste disposal operations. The conceptual logic and control modifications include simultaneous modeling of leaching from multiple waste forms, output or organ dose summaries for specified intervals of time, calculation of nuclide-specific dose conversion factors used in determining total dose for each year, determination of maximum annual dose and the year in which it occurs, and output of corresponding dose summaries.
