- Lysimeter testing of polymer impregnated tritiated concrete (PITC) specimens at the Savannah River Laboratory (SRL) has continued. After twenty-three weeks, an average tritium fraction release rate of 3.37 x 10/sup -7/ day/sup -1/ has been determined in the percolate water with no measurable release to the air. Data from this experiment is extrapolated to estimate long-term tritium releases. A duplicate PITC specimen is in static leaching in distilled water. After seventy-two days, the average tritium fraction release rate has been 1.96 x 10/sup -5/ day/sup -1/. An estimation of the increased severity of static leaching in distilled water relative to lysimeter testing is made.
