- As anionic species, both Tc-99 and I-129 are expected to be mobile in the soils beneath the burial ground. These two isotopes were analyzed in groundwater collected from research wells screened in the tritium plume leaving the burial ground. The maximum observed concentrations of 22 pCi/L of Tc-99 and 12 pCi/L of I-129 in the plume wells are above background levels and confirm the mobility of these species. The earlier measurements included in this report have been reported before.1,2 The data indicate that the I-129 concentrations may be increasing with time. Because of the long time (greater than one year) involved in obtaining results for these ultra low-level analyses, this work included analysis of only a few wells inside the burial ground. This limited selection of wells does not permit a mapping of the groundwater concentration isopleths.
