NORM; MANS USE OF PRODUCTION ISOTOPES >50a.wt. & INDUSTRIAL CHEMICAL CONTAMINATES
Natural Occurring Radioactive Materials existing in mineral beds. Their present in nature is fact, that is a natural part of the footprint known as N O R M. Norm consist of daughter products, known to be radioactive, from the natural decay from Uranium 238 and Uranium 235. Radioactive -nuclides created by natural decay are hazardous. NORM levels in background soils or mineral beds can be in minor or increased level amounts. Some radionuclides are more hazardous that others. As first all being toxic in white powder form and as Radon in Gaseous decay form. Principally, buildup in basements or homes, increase the radiological hazard unless remediated.
In Steel production smelters, the levels of NORM become concentrated to amounts that are considered now Regulated NORM. (At levels needing regulation due to human; wildlife and environment detrimental health effects to Safety) .
Due to the” footprint”, meaning history of property use , it could have a level of nuclide-concentrate on the property that is elevated into the Regulated NORM category. The category level that will require clean up and disposal of hazards material, back to baseline levels prior to title insurances granting safe acceptability for humans.
Original “Baseline Footprint” is the forward approach to assess property prior to purchase. For radioactive material this requires special sensitive instrumentation. Doing so excludes possibilities of NORM in excess of normal original backgrounds levels in natural settings. These parameters are best taken with the Canberra” ISOCS” following a Marssim principal. That survey produces characterization of the property’s radioactive hazard materials
Termination Plans, are the organized Marssim approach guidelines to complete characterization. This plan describes, a cost effective way, procedures being established guiding the direction of remediation involving Radioactive Waste Disposal materials to levels are NORM, or Regulated NORM, guidelines, also personnel responsibilities for release documentation of NORM or Regulated NORM, as approved by regulatory agencies.
Final Status Footprint Baselines are taken after cleanup of source Radio nuclides sources. Parameters are best taken with the Canberra” ISOC” following the Marssim principal.
The economics of establishing the Baseline Footprint is comprehensive and covers many facets. First the evaluation will tell exactly what is in the content of soils on property. A property that contains Regulated NORM will be of questionable value than property with hazard assessments complete. .There – fore many state guidelines require hazard assessments. Property history through title companies and realtors are the regulating entities for the proper evaluation to buyers.
Title company certification will also shield businesses and business owners from litigation due to unknown exposures to hazard waste. Entities that own property are becoming more and more vulnerable as more is learned about industrial waste hazards including radioactive isotopes.
Idaho Nuclear Specialties LLC has the experience to do all of the required assessments necessary to certify the property footprint.. We can discuss, at your site, possibilities involving radio-nuclides history and radioactive waste materials boundary violations .
THE INDUSTRIAL BASE OF CHEMICAL CLEAN UPS RELY ON THE ALL KNOWN USES OF PROPERTY IN THE HISTORY
Property history refers you back to the records of OWNERSHIP in the past and products produced along with waste materials and waste dumping criteria. By allowing one of our team to research the procedure, and in doing a preliminary test for indicators of byproducts materials.

Those things that describe land usage in the past: good or bad in man’s zest for making things the environment can suffer in some cases those things can never be cleaned up, others yes allowing others to destroy your footprint can be devastating prevent ING you from thriving , causing injury or even death regulations instituted were developed to protect you and yours being aware is catastrophic, to your enjoying the life you were given.
