The report gives the results of a radionuclide exposure study conducted by EPA in southeastern Idaho to estimate the radiation dose resulting from the elemental phosphorus industry. The dispersion of radionuclides through the environs of Pocatello and Soda Springs, Idaho were investigated together with the relative importance of their sources and pathways affecting the populations of both towns and the magnitude of the attendant risks. Gamma ray exposures to the populations of Soda Springs and Pocatello, with the attendant risks, and the corresponding values for average and maximally exposed individuals in both communities are listed.
