Liquid releases

 

So far all we have talked about is airborne releases.

For events involving releases to the aquatic environment, e.g. rivers or oceans, the rating based on dose should be established using the criteria that we will explain in the next section. Liquid discharges resulting in doses significantly higher than that appropriate for Level 3 would need to be rated at Level 4, or above, but any assessment of radiological equivalence would be site specific and, therefore, cannot be provided here.
