The Environmental Protection Agency and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission conducted joint field studies to detect environmental contamination from fuel fabrication plant effluents. The plant chosen for study was operated by the General Electric Company, Nuclear Field Division, at Wilmington, NC. The facility operates continuously using the ammonium diuranate (ADU) process to convert 2.0 to 2.2% enriched UF6 to UO2 fuel. Environmental uranium from plant effluents was distinguished from naturally occurring uranium by using specific isotopic analyses and statistical interpretations. Continuous air samplers at five sites measured the concentrations of 234U and 238U in air for 36 one-week intervals. River water was sampled at nine locations above and below the plant discharge point during each of three field surveys.
