TO LER.50-321/1979-021, REV. 5 EDWIN I. HATCH NUCLEAR PLANT - Hatch 1 NONROUTINE RADICLOGICAL ENVIRONMENTAL OPERATING i ANOMALOUS MEASUREMENT REPORT l
} This report which supplements the previous .submittals on LER 50-321/1979-021 provides updated data on tritium levels in groundwater ;
- samples taken from locations where the average value during the first
]' quarter of 1983 exceeded 3.0 E4 pCi/1 which is the report level for tritium in environmental water samples according to Table 3.2-3 of the 4
ETS. There continues to be no significant impact on the public health and safety due to these readings which exceeded the report level. As reported previously, any releases to unrestricted areas are through the- outfalls of the drainage system; such - releases continue to be small and result in nonsignificant doses to the public.
i High tritium levels have been found in groundwater samples taken from i' two separate areas of the plant yard - an area centered just south of-CST-1 and an area about the north side of .the Unit 1 turbine ,
building. These areas appear to be _ essentially unrelated to each other in that the causes of the high tritium levels are different and there appears not to be a good hydraulic connection between the two areas. t There were three reportable locations (test holes P16, T12 and T18) for the - CST-1 area for the fourth quarter of 1982. During the first quarter of 1983, test holes P16 and T18 were dry and the average tritium level at T12 dropped below the report level to 1.38 E4 pCi/1.
There were ' four reportable locations (test holes N98, T3 and T4, and
! the steam pipe chase for the auxiliary boiler) for the area about the north side of the Unit I turbine building for the fourth quarter of E
1982. During the first quarter of 1983, the average tritium levels at T3 and the steam pipe chase dropped below the report level and no sample was collected at T4. The average levels at T3 and the pipe
! chase were 2.76 E4 and 6.59 E3 pCi/1, respectively.
l The tritium levels found in all samples gathered at N9B, the only reportable location for the first quarter of 1983 along with a complete listing of the past average quarterly levels at this location are presented in Table 1.
. Gamma scans were run on each sample collected in the steam pipe chase. No radionuclides above background were found.
