Does anyone out there know if there are models or studies that were used
as the basis for the total sanitary sewerage discharge limits in
10CFR20? I know the specifics of potential dose would be as varied as
there are possible emission sources or receptors. But I haven't been
able to find anything justifying the 5 Ci tritium limit (other than, it
just seems to be a conservative number that is unlikely to affect public
Thanks for any advice.
