Accelerating contamination cleanup and reuse of radioactive land by determining environmental remediation end states

Sites with radioactive contamination usually require action to protect people and the environment, and to enable transition to a different future use.

To support environmental management of these sites, a new publication from the International Atomic Energy Agency presents a process to determine the “end state” of the site to be remediated or being remediated, and implications for the site future use and necessary controls.

The approach is intended to assist those responsible for a site in making an informed and transparent decision on what is the mutually agreed end state.

It provides a common basis for all stakeholders involved in the decision-making process, who are working on achieving consensus, so that the potential for misunderstanding is reduced.
