This report presents the operational procedures and results of the off-site radiological surveillance activities conducted during the production flaring phase of the Project Rulison program. The only radioactivity detected in the off-site area during and following the flaring operation was krypton-85 in air and tritium in atmospheric moisture, precipitation, natural vegetation, and soil. No levels of radioactivity greater that five percent of the U.S. Energy Research and Development Administration (ERDA) Manual, Chapter 0524, Concentration Guides (CG's) were detected off-site and no levels greater than one percent of the CG's were detected at populated locations.
