This is the first in a series of annual summaries of radioactive waste being released from, or shipped off-site by, nuclear power plants in the United States. The report provides a consolidated source of data. This report covers only those long lived isotopes which are generally released in sufficient quantities to be environmentally significant over extended periods of time in the biosphere. This report includes those plants which reached commercial operation, or had measurable releases prior to commercial operation, as of December 1975, and includes only those isotopes of environmental and radiological significance. All of the information in this report was taken from the individual plant semi-annual or annual operating reports filed by the responsible utility with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission unless otherwise noted.
