The report identifies technologies that may be useful in removing or stabilizing radiological contamination at those uncontrolled hazardous waste (Superfund) sites that contain radionuclides. The report addresses remediation of contaminated soils; it does not address remediation of contaminated buildings or ground water. The report is not intended to provide any legal or policy basis for the selection or use of technology for cleanup of a hazardous waste site. Several technologies have potential for eliminating or stabilizing radionuclides at radiologically contaminated sites. These include both on-site and off-site disposal, on-site treatment, radon control, chemical extraction, physical separation, and combined physical separation and chemical extraction technologies. Applicability of these technologies is controlled by site-specific factors, so their suitability must be determined on a site-by-site basis.
