Abstract

Radioactive substances, such as radium, in water treatment wastes often result in difficult and confusing situations for those people with responsibility for handling and disposing of the wastes. In 1990, the US Environmental Protection Agency signaled its concern by issuing guidance for the disposal of radionuclide-bearing wastes and for stemming potential radiation hazards. Substancias radioactivas, tales como el radio, encontrados en los deshechos de los tratamientos de aguas, producen situaciones difíciles y confusas para quienes tienen la responsabilidad de manejar y deshacerse de esos deshechos. En 1990, la Agencia Protectora del Ambiente de los E.U. demostró su preocupación al preparar unas guías para la eliminación de deshechos que contienen radionúcleos y en el caso potencial de problemas de radiación.
