This report presents the results of that review. It provides recommendations on analytical methods, on airborne containment monitoring, on operational procedures, on the applicability of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, and on involvement of workers and the public in implementation of the new AELs.DAAMS, a manual monitoring system, is used at stockpile and non-stockpile sites to confirm or deny MINICAMS TWA alarms (that is, reports of the presence of agent at concentrations greater than the alarm level) and at stockpile sites toanbsp;...
