The purpose of this interim remedial action is to reduce the potential threat to human health and the environment from the radiologically contaminated scrap and debris lying on the surface of Waste Area Grouping (WAG) 11. Contaminated surface debris that litters much of the surface of WAG 11 is a result of the intentional storage on the site of contaminated scrap, debris, and industrial waste. Measurement surveys of alpha, beta, and gamma radiation have revealed that contaminants are present on some of the debris in levels high enough to be of concern. Swipe sample analytical results have shown elevated concentration of Uranium 238, Cesium 137, and other isotopes. Results of radiological surveys on the debris range from 0.5 mrad/h to 21 mrad/h. Physical hazards include sharp pieces of metal and broken glass on the ground surface.
