Title:
WASTE DISPOSAL SITE AND METHOD OF CONSTRUCTION THEREOF
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JPS6443387
Kind Code:
A
Abstract:

PURPOSE: To provide a waste disposal site most adequate for disposal of a large amt. of low level radioactive waste in a narrow region by providing at least two tumuli of a ground level with side portions adjacent to each other and disposing the tumuli higher than the ground level on these adjacent side portions.

CONSTITUTION: This waste disposal site consists of the plural waste disposal sites respectively including central raised portions 7 and the sloping side portions 9a and 9b bordered with these raised portions 7. At least two tumuli 3a and 3b of the ground level are provided with the side portions 9a and 9b adjacent to each other and the tumuli 5 above the ground level are arranged in the adjacent side portions. Each tumulus is at least partly provided with a floor 11 and roof 13 formed of a deformable water-shedding material layer 32. The roofs 13 of the tumuli 3a and 3b form at least part of the floor of the tumulus 5. Consequently, the waste disposal site is hardly affected by a bathtub effect and is made most adequate for the disposal of a large amt. of the low-level radioactive waste. The waste disposal site is usable in area of geographic conditions where the ground water level is not significantly low.
