Abstract : Concern over the final disposition of the Basin 'F' liquid has prompted the initiation of several studies into the possible methods of treatment and/or stabilization of the Basin 'F' liquid. One such study is an evaporation experiment initiated in June 1980 by personnel of the Treatment Technology Branch. The purpose of the evaporation experiment was to (1) determine the evaporation rate of the Basin 'F' liquid, (2) identify any changes in the evaporation rate at various stages of dryness, (3) identify any changes in the physical and chemical properties of the Basin 'F' liquid at various stages of dryness, (4) determine the approximate weight of solids to be expected at the equilibrium concentration or at dryness, and (5) determine if the Basin will evaporate to an equilibrium concentration or completely to dryness.
