Abstract: Burial in the ground is widely accepted by national and international authorities as a safe and practical way to dispose of solid radioactive waste. Between 1960 and 1968 the Australian Atomic Energy Commission (AAEC) used an area at Little Forest near Lucas Heights for the disposal of waste with low concentrations of radioactivity that originated predominantly from its Research Establishment (RE) some 2 km to the southeast.
