2017 EPRI Groundwater Protection Workshop
September 19 - September 21
Experience at decommissioning and operating nuclear power plants has shown that leaks and spills from systems and components and work practices have the potential to impact onsite soils and groundwater. License material in soil and groundwater, while not a health or safety issue, must be managed in order to ensure that public and environmental safety is being maintained and to minimize the impact on decommissioning and site release. As the nuclear utilities gain experience in implementing groundwater protection programs, they look for even more innovative technologies for groundwater protection, monitoring and remediation. Innovative technologies must be technically advanced, be sustainable and energy efficient, and be cost effective, while continuing to provide assurance that the site groundwater is being protected.
