The report is a summary of the August 1974 survey of a waste disposal site near the Farallon Islands that had been used between 1946 and 1966 for the disposal of radioactive waste materials. This survey was the first in which a deepwater (850) meter radioactive waste disposal site had been successfully relocated and subjected to a comprehensive survey. The U.S. Navy's CURV III, an unmanned remote controlled submersible, was used to investigate the condition of the containers. The report contains site location chart and high quality benthic color plates showing the condition of the containers.
