Price, R.L. Jackson, C.W. Myers. The Basalt Waste Isolation Project (BWIP) broke ground at Hanford Site inconducting tests aimed at siting a safe and isolated repository for reactor irradiated fuel and other nuclear byproducts. Between and enactment of the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of (NWPA), studies at the Hanford site continued to evaluate the geologic and hydrologic suitability of the BWIP repository in.

[Abstract only]}, author = {Price, S M and Gephart, R E}, abstractNote = {Within the Basalt Waste Isolation Project, geohydrologic studies are focusing on repository site characterization, particularly those factors that might influence groundwater.

Potential groundwater contamination above the one-time candidate repository for high-level nuclear waste in the Columbia River Basalt (CRB), USA, is evaluated in a flow-transport model withelements for a period of 1 million years. The hydrogeologic database originates from the Basalt Waste Isolation Project, which ended ingiving way to the Yucca Mountain project.

The application of such large-scale field tests should help promote public confidence in the constructibility of a high level waste repository.
