A number of scientists, all of whom participated in development of the former Soviet Union's waste injection program, explain past decisions regarding deep injection disposal of liquid radioactive wastes resulting from Cold War weapons production activities. Considerations of safety, research, practical experience in building disposal systems, and proper monitoring are explored. Translated from the Russian work published by Izdat (1994). Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

Dr. Michael G. Foley, principal editor for this translation, a staff scientist at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (operated by Battelle), is an acknowledged Western expert on the storage and migration of radioactively contaminated wastes at the former Soviet Union's principal nuclear-materials reprocessing sites. Dr. Foley has published numerous reports, journal articles, and presentations with his Russian counterparts, and he has traveled to Russia to participate in joint field-characterization activities to better understand the migration of radioactive contaminants at the sites.Review:
"This book is the most comprehensive account available in the West that describes the Soviet and Russian practice of disposing of radioactive wastes into deep geological formations. The authors have major technical responsibilities for the geological investigations, chemical interactions, and engineering of the facilities. They describe the geologic requirements, investigations for compliance, systems design, and results of the operation of massive systems at Tomsk-7 and Krasnoyarsk-26 for over 30 years.
"Written for the general public in Russia in 1994, the book offers valuable, unique data despite the fact that the material is not exhaustive in technical detail, and some questions do remain unanswered. The book is enormously beneficial because of its historical account of the development and implementation of the deep injection of radioactive wastes that allow the Russians to 'prevent impacts of radioactivity in many regions of the country.' It also gives more details about the requirements and the implementation of such systems than were previously available in the West. It should be of interest not only to the nuclear waste community but also to those struggling with the disposal of hazardous chemicals. It deserves to be published." -- Frank L. Parker, Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Vanderbilt University
