- The Environmental Monitoring and Compliance (EMC) Department within the Environmental and Health Protection Division (EHP) at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is responsible for environmental surveillance to: (1) assure compliance with all Federal, State, and DOE requirements for the prevention, control, and abatement of environmental pollution, (2) monitor the adequacy of containment and effluent controls, and (3) assess impacts of releases from ORNL facilities on the environment. To meet these objectives, the EMC Department has implemented a surveillance program that consists of both monitoring and sampling of environmental constituents. The surveillance program for 1988 includes sampling and monitoring of air, water from surface streams and point sources, fish, milk, soil, and vegetation (grass) for radioactive and nonradioactive materials. This report includes data for air, surface water, and milk. Surveillance points are located on-site to quantify discharges from ORNL facilities, and off-site to determine public exposures and to establish background reference levels. The purpose of this report is to provide Laboratory and Central Management personnel with the most recent information on environmental conditions. 1 ref., 15 figs., 44 tabs.
