Early Phase Clean-Up Actions after Nuclear Accidents
The work reported has been performed with the purpose of working out a guide for
planners of early clean-up actions in nuclear fallout situations and for decision
makers in the Nordic countries. The actions considered are hosing of roofs, walls
and paved areas, lawn mowing, removal of snow, pruning of trees and bushes and
vacuum cleaning of streets. The expected effects, mainly as life time dose reduction,
and consequences regarding practicability, waste produced, staffing and protection
are presented for urban, suburban and rural living environments.
The work has been performed within the framework of the Nordic Nuclear Safety
Research Programme 1994 -97 with full financial support from the Swedish Rescue
Services Agency (Statens Räddningsverk).
