The PRESTO-EPA-DEEP model was used to assess the cumulative population health effects (including fatal cancer deaths and serious genetic effects) to the general population residing in the downstream regional water basin as a result of the disposal of LLW using deep geological disposal methods. The model is considered a member of the PRESTO-EPA family of models. The model is modified from the PRESTO-EPA-POP model primarily in the area of radionuclide transport in the geosphere. Interested persons may apply the model, using appropriate and applicable input data, for assessing the cumulative population health effects resulting from the disposal of LLW using a deep geological disposal method.
