The assessments were accompanied by gamma logging to determine a remediation strategy. Following characterization activities, Micah Group was contracted based on previous performance to excavate, condition, and package for disposal approximately 100,000 cubic feet of radioactive material buried outdoors and beneath normally occupied work spaces. The project involved saw cutting interior floors and demolition of an 18,000 square foot production facility in order to access buried materials. Excavation was accomplished in three interior and two outdoor survey units. High activity, dry soils were placed directly into 5 cubic yard soft bags; wet wastes were conditioned with lime kiln dust in order to render them acceptable for disposal. Low activity waste was screened with scalping equipment and loaded via a conveyor system into dump trailers. Resultant wastes were shipped to either a licensed LLRW disposal facility or a Subtitle D landfill. Work required high level of coordination with plant facility to ensure safety goals were met or exceed, as well as providing for efficient production of work.
