Radiation Safety Monitoring Program


There are 4 types of radiation monitoring activities at the ​LAMP

Lynas Monitoring Activities:

  • Occupational Exposure Monitoring Program
  • Environmental Radiation Monitoring Program 
  • Continuous Aerosol Monitoring System (AMS)

Regulatory Monitoring:

  • AELB Monitoring – carried out by the AELB

NO radiological impact to public

Permissible Limit for public = 1 mSv per year; Permissible Limit for radiation workers = 20 mSv per year

NOTE: Dose is an overestimate, MDL values were used for values less than MDL in calculating doses

Monitoring Stations for water sampling

​​​​


Effluent TSS measured over time at the point of discharge from the LAMP: Levels LOWER than the permissible limit (Std B Water Quality)

​​​​

 


Effluent COD measured over time at the point of discharge from the LAMP: Levels LOWER than the permissible limit (Std B Water Quality)

​​​​

 


Iron concentrations in effluent measured over time at the point of discharge from the LAMP: Levels LOWER than the permissible limit (Std B Water Quality)

​​​​

 


Manganese concentrations in effluent measured at the point of discharge from the LAMP: Levels LOWER than the permissible limit (Std B Water Quality)

​​​​

 


​​​​

Discharge water quality:
Quality of the final discharge is WELL BELOW LIMIT of the Standard B


Water quality Upstream and Downstream: 
  1. ​WELL WITHIN Class II and Class III of NIQWSM
  2. ​Heavy metals and other metals were UNDETECTED OR FOUND IN TRACE LEVELS
