2.0 Site Status Summary
In September 1996 General Atomic's (GA's) SNM license was amended to authorize only decommissioning activities. By an application dated October 11, 1996, and supplements dated December 5, 1996; April 18, 1997; and January 15, 1998; GA requested an amendment to its license to incorporate a site DP. GA is undergoing site wide decommissioning in accordance with the DP. Amendment 76 lowered the possession limit to less than a critical mass in 2003. All areas have been decommissioned, and the final status surveys where NRC is the lead agency will be completed in 2008. The primary radioactive contaminant is uranium-235. Soil will be remediated to levels specified in option 1 of the BTP, "Disposal or Onsite Storage of Thorium or Uranium Wastes from Past Operations," [46 FR 52061; October 23, 1981]. Facilities and equipment will be decontaminated to levels specified in "Guidelines for Decontamination of Facilities and Equipment Prior to Release for Unrestricted Use or Termination of Licenses for Byproduct, Source, or Special Nuclear Material," [USNRC, Policy and Guidance Directive FC 83-23, Division of Industrial and Medical Nuclear Safety, November 4, 1983]. GA intends to decommission to radiation levels required for unrestricted use and to terminate its SNM license.
