Topics:  Radiation Protection

Fixed contamination was unexpectedly identified on a legacy cask stand at the Materials and Fuels Complex. Modifications and paint removal were being performed in preparation for re-purposing the stand. Radiological controls personnel were asked to free release the stand so it could be transported off-site for further work. Work had been previously performed on the stand in various shops, including removal of some components. During the performance of radiological surveys a spot of fixed contamination was discovered on the removed catwalk portion of the stand. No loose contamination was discovered in any area or on personnel. Other items and tools associated with the work were surveyed and appropriately controlled.
