The owners and managers of a number of sites would like to determine if these sites are contaminated, clean them up, and release them for public use. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), and the Department of Energy (DOE) are preparing regulations for the release of certain categories of radioactively contaminated sites following such cleanup. The primary objective of the EPA, NRC, and DOE regulations is to ensure that human health and the environment are protected from radioactive contamination at sites that are to be released to the public. The Mult-Agency Radiation Survey and Site Investigation Manual (MARSSIM) addresses the need to have a nationally consistent approach to conducting radiation surveys and investigations of potentially contaminated sites. The decommissioning that follows remediation will normally require a demonstration to the responsible Federal or state agency that the cleanup effort was successful, and that the release criterion was met. This manual assists site personnel or others in performing or assessing such a demonstration.
