60,000 pounds total for a period not to exceed 10 days.
3. The Worst-Case Release Scenario and Alternative Release Scenario
The Worst-Case Release Scenario. Failure of the largest storage tank when filled to the greatest amount would release 160,000 pounds of Anhydrous Ammonia, which represents the volume of the largest storage tank at 85 percent capacity as limited by design standards. The distance to the endpoint (point of dispersion to 200 ppm) is 1.18 miles.
Alternative Release Prevention Program. The alternate release scenario, based on the five-year accident history (or the most likely potential incident) is a release from reactor piping or hoses. The distance to the endpoint (point of dispersion to 200 ppm) is .59 miles.
