      The emissions of low level waste water where in direct contravention of the Antarctic Treaty, which bans military operations as well as radioactive waste in Antarctica.

        Natural discharge of the aquifer takes place where the aquifer comes into contact with the alluvium of the Altamaha River. Permeability of the aquifer increases with depth. The potentiometric surface of the aquifer has a gradient of 7 m/km (23 ft/mi) to the north, toward the Altamaha River.

      The northern end of the tailings dam has been used intermittently as a repository for low level radioactive waste since April , when the site was gazetted under the Crown Lands Act and placed under the care, control and management of the (then) Minister of Mines and Energy.

The primary possible route of public exposure to contamination in the future is via migration of contaminants to the Snake River Plain Aquifer.

However, CERE concluded that the risk of such exposure is low because of the long distances between INEEL and the nearest water supply wells and natural processes (such as biodegradation, radioactive.
