LINAC Beam Dump

1999

The Particle Beam Dump at the north end of the LINAC Accelerator, Bldg. 930, was investigated under Operable Unit III. Elevated levels of metals in the recharge basin associated with this Area of Concern (AOC 20) were found and there was concern that they may impact tiger salamanders. Monitoring will be performed in accordance with BNL's SPDES permit and Five-Year Reviews will be conducted to ensure that the tiger salamanders are not impacted.
