Low-Level Tritium Measurements in Groundwater near The Savannah River Site
Shapiro, Earl A.
MetadataShow full item record
The results of tritium analyses of ground water collected in 2001 and 2002 by the Georgia DNR in Burke and Screven counties near the Savannah River are reported. In some samples, the tritium concentration was below 10 pCi/L while in others it was between 1,010 and 13 pCi/L. With two exceptions, samples with detectable tritium concentrations were from the nearsurface aquifer, while the other samples were from deeper-lying aquifers. The values are compared with results presented by others during the past 10 years. Inferences by others concerning these findings are reported.
