Contents Notes This technical brief was developed to address the common misconception that depleted uranium represents only a radiological health hazard. It provides accepted data and references to additional sources for both the radiological and chemical characteristics, health risk as well as references for both the monitoring and measurement and applicable treatment techniques for depleted uranium. Purpose -- Introduction -- Characteristics of uranium and depleted uranium -- Health concerns -- Exposure pathways -- Chemical risk -- Radiological risk -- Uranium in the environment -- Occurrence -- Geochemistry -- Mobility -- Enhanced mobility -- Fate and transport of depleted uranium -- Fate in soil -- Fate in water -- Fate in air -- Fate in biota -- Partition coefficients -- Fate and transport modeling -- Site screening for depleted uranium contamination -- Measurement tools and monitoring techniques -- Remediation technologies -- Soil technologies -- Physical separation -- Chemical extraction -- Groundwater technologies -- Pump and treat -- Permeable reactive barriers -- Commercial test studies -- Technologies for soil and water -- In-situ stabilization/treatment -- Phytoremediation -- Monitored natural attenuation -- EPA standards applicable to depleted uranium sites -- For soil -- For air -- For water -- Storage of depleted uranium -- For disposal --Acronyms -- Glossary -- Additional sources of information -- Appendix 1: Technical background on uranium and depleted uranium -- Appendix 2: Measurement tools and monitoring techniques -- Appendix 3: National Priorities List (NPL) sites that have or may have DU contamination -- Appendix 4: Depleted uranium manufacturing and testing facilities -- Appendix 5: Case study -- Nuclear Metals, Inc.
