Monitoring of REMP level in tomato plants.
Normandeau Associates has been providing Radiological Environmental Monitoring Program REMP sample collection and reporting services for nuclear generating stations across the Eastern U.S. for over four decades. Having worked on numerous REMP projects, we provide a broad range of expertise and all the necessary capabilities needed to fulfill the normal requirements of REMP, including qualified manpower, quality assurance program elements, and equipment. In addition, we excel at the ability to quickly mobilize response teams to assist clients with REMP emergency drills, including sample collections for actual events.
We recognize that Quality Assurance (QA) programs vary from the formal requirements of the nuclear industry for safety-related items to non-regulatory requirements of the commercial industry. Our Quality Assurance program for REMP is consistent with the requirements of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) Regulatory Guides 4.15 and 4.1 as applicable to each project. Compliance audits performed by our nuclear clientele and the U.S. NRC confirm the adherence of our REMP services to U.S. NRC requirements, as well as site-specific procedures and protocols for our clients.
In addition to REMP support, we perform other environmental surveys and sample collections for our nuclear clientele, to include NPDES compliance monitoring, groundwater monitoring for tritium and other potential radiological contaminant releases, determinations of sediment buildup in cooling ponds and source waters, and 316(a) thermal discharge and 316(b) cooling water intake studies.
As a science-based environmental consulting firm with over 40 years of experience providing REMP services, Normandeau stands out for its ability to guide you to sound, defensible and reasonable science-based decisions for project and regulatory compliance.
