The purpose of this report is to take the information gathered in the lithological boring study along with information from other pertinent studies performed on the West Valley low-level radioactive waste burial site through March 1975 and examine the several pathways, actual and potential, for radioactivity to move from the site. Using the same information an examination of the status of this site will be compared with recommendations made for low-level nuclear waste disposal sites and hazardous material disposal sites. Possible improvements in the areas of the site selection, development, and operation to reduce environmental impacts of this and similar sites will be recommended. Finally, follow up studies that are either needed or being performed will be described.
