Summary

LANT

Identified new patterns of 90Sr conduct in groundwater that have passed way migration under the "Ukryttya" object. Shown that in alkaline groundwater environment with pH 8.5 – 10 volume activity of 90Sr is reduced to several Bq/l by creating weakly soluble compounds with СО32-, which precipitate. When pH above 10 - 11, increases 90Sr migration capacity and the values of 90Sr volume activity in groundwater samples reaches 150 – 2100 Bq/l.

Keywords: groundwater, industrial site of ChNPP, migration, 90Sr activity, pH, carbonate-ion.
