Confine in a lagoon or other basin.
Expose to weathering processes.
Containerize and ship to a national or international landfill.
In the case of BW/CW, you can add decontaminating chemicals to your consideration list for material to dispose of as well.
Monitoring Radiation Safety.
If appropriate radiation hard measures are taken, health risk
to the operator and the soldier
will be minimized. You need to apply the principles of time, distance, and shielding to the waste generated as a result of
contaminated water purification. Ensure that operators keep exposure tine to a minimum, they stay away from equipment if it
is not necessary to be present during some phases of operation, and the waste container is shielded with whatever is available
(for example: sand bags, parking another truck nearby). Radiation warning signs an be posted, if available, to keep
unnecessary personnel away from the purification equipment. Other areas occupied by troops should be set up well away
from the purification operation if possible.
Water Production in an NBC Environment. The ROWPU can successfully decontaminate water up to 99 percent. A post-
treatment section must be used in order to remove 99.9 percent of the NBC contaminants in the product water.

purification equipment to operate on coastal raw water sources. This part is intended to provide some insight into techniques
and procedures necessary to overcome operational difficulties associated with water purification at coastal sites.
Monitoring Safety Considerations. Just as in regular land-based operations, high voltages are used in the operation of OISS
equipment. Death on contact may result if personnel fail to observe safety precautions. The equipment's electrical circuits
contain high voltages when in operation. Do not attempt inspection or maintenance while equipment is connected to a power
source. Failure to do so may result in injury or death to personnel.
When wellpoint(s) are being installed, the area near the hole may fluidize creating a wider hole. This could result in loss
of solid footing, and an operator could fall into the hole being drilled. This could also result in
