operational practices important to the effective management of each of the
waste types, such as waste segregation.
Waste Sources and Characteristics
This section summarizes how and where the waste is generated (i.e., waste
streams) and how it enters the appropriate waste handling or treatment system.
For each waste type (i.e., radioactive, mixed, or hazardous) discuss by
characteristics, composition, and waste material form (i.e., gaseous, liquid, or
solid) the effluent discharges, emission limits, and permitting.
Waste Handling or Treatment Systems
This section summarizes the processes to treat different waste types and forms
produced in the facility. This brief summary should include system function,
and basic chemical or physical operating principles (e.g., sedimentation, ion
exchange, decanting). Also include or reference simplified process flow
diagrams that show the location of equipment and instrumentation (including
