SPENT BARIUM SULFATE RESIDUE DISPOSAL
Dear Mr. Goff:
Reference is made to your letter dated October 1, 1968, requesting
permission to dispose of approximately 2,500 tons of spent Barium
Sulfate at our Quarry Site near Weldon Spring, Missouri.
Justification, sufficient to grant the permission requested, does
not appear adequate at this time. Currently, the AEC has no operations
at Weldon Spring and would be uninterested, therefore, in adding to
our limited existing surveillance responsibility at the site. Should
the Cotter Corporation continue to have an interest in the pit stored
raffinates at the Weldon Spring Plant Site, as you have previously
indicated, we would be happy to reconsider and evaluate any mutually
beneficial proposal you might wish to offer.
If we can be of further assistance in this or other matters do not
hesitate to call on us.
