Location of the site relative to prominent natural and man- made features
such as rivers, lakes, mountain ranges, dams, airports, population centers.
General location map to define the boundary of the site and show the
correct distance of significant facility features from the site boundary.
Public exclusion areas and access control areas.
Identification of the point where the Evaluation Guideline is applied.
Additional detail maps, as needed, to present near plant detail, such as
orientation of buildings, traffic routes, transmission lines, and neighboring
Population information based on recent census data is included to show the
population distribution as a function of distance and direction from the facility.
Demographic information emphasizes worker populations and nearby residences,
major population centers, and major institutions such as schools, hospitals, etc., to
the degree warranted by potential offsite consequences. The minimum area
addressed is defined by the area significantly affected by the accidents analyzed in
Chapter 3, "Hazard and Accident Analyses."
This section describes the site's meteorology, hydrology, and geology.
This section provides the meteorological information necess ary to understand the
regional weather phenomena of concern for facility operations and to understand
the dispersion analyses performed.
This section provides the hydrological information necessary to understand any
regional hydrological phenomena of concern for facility operation and to
understand any dispersion analyses performed. Include information on
hydrological character of the site. Discuss or reference, to the degree necessary,
the average and extreme conditions as determined by historical data to meet the
intent of this section.
This section provides the geological information necessary to understand any
regional geological phenomena of concern for facility operation. Describe the
nature of investigations performed and provide the results of the investigations.
Include geologic history, soil structures, and other aspects of the geologic
character of the site.
