The Large Helical Device of the National Institute for Fusion Science started D-D experiments in 2017. To ensure the safety of the facility, it is important to develop evaluation methods for environmental tritium transfer. Tritiated water (HTO) in atmosphere and soil is transferred to plants, and organically bound tritium (OBT) is formed by photosynthesis. Prediction of OBT formation is important, because OBT accumulates in plants and causes dose through ingestion. The objective of this study is to estimate environmental tritium transfer using a simple compartment model and practical parameters. We proposed a simple compartment model consisting of air-soil-plant components, and tried to validate the model by comparison with a sophisticated model, SOLVEG. In this study, we plan to add wet deposition to the model and obtain parameters from measurements of soil permeability and tritium concentrations in air, soil and plants. We also establish rapid pretreatment methods for OBT analysis.

The purpose of this study is to develop the technique to evaluate the environmental tritium behavior of the nuclear facility origin. Tritium concentrations of river water, precipitation and ground water around the NIFS site were determined by low background liquid scintillation measurement system combined with the electrolysis using solid polymer electrolyte. The electric conductivity and flow rate of the river and isotopic ratio of oxygen and hydrogen of water samples were also measured. The tritium concentrations in precipitation showed the seasonal variation and the range were 0.09-0.78 Bq/L. The tritium concentrations of river water and ground water were almost constant, 0.34 and 0.24 Bq/L respectively. The simple dynamic model for the site around the NIFS facilities was developed using measured data, and the behavior of tritium was simulated.

The "Mizunami Underground Research Laboratory" has been carrying out scientific research in granite to establish the technological basis for high-level radioactive waste disposal. To get reliable information on the rock mass geology and hydrogeology and on the bedrock conditions, a pilot borehole investigation was carried out before sinking the ventilation shaft. During this investigation, a zone with high hydraulic head and low hydraulic conductivity was observed at around GL-400m. To reduce water inflow during excavation, pre-excavation grouting with micro-fine cement was done in this region before sinking the Ventilation Shaft. Despite the high hydraulic head and the low hydraulic conductivity, effective reduction of water-inflow was achieved.

The Mizunami Underground Research Laboratory (MIU), one of the main facilities in Japan for research and development of the technology for high-level radioactive waste disposal, is under construction in Mizunami City. In planning the construction, it was necessary to get reliable information on the bedrock conditions, specifically the rock mass stability and hydrogeology. Therefore, borehole investigations were conducted before excavations started. The results indicated that large water inflow could be expected during the excavation around the Ventilation Shaft at GL-200m and GL-300m Access/Research Gallery. In order to reduce water inflow, pre-excavation grouting was conducted before excavation of shafts and research tunnels. Grouting is the injection of material such as cement into a rock mass to stabilize and seal the rock. This report describes the knowledge and lessons learned during the planning and conducting of pre-excavation grouting.

Grouting has practical importance for the reduction of groundwater inflow for the construction of underground facilities. Considering the performance assessment aspects of a radioactive waste repository, the performance of engineered barrier system could be adversely affected by high pH plume generated from grout using material such as ordinary Portland cement. Therefore, a quantitative estimation of the effectiveness of grouting and grout material is essential. Study of grouting performance was carried out in Mizunami URL excavated in crystalline rock. The target volume for the investigation is the rock surrounding a refuge niche where the pre-excavation grouting was performed. Ten investigation boreholes were drilled and several kinds of investigations were carried out. The groundwater flow analysis was performed to estimate the effect of grouting quantitatively. The results suggested that the existing grouting technology is effective to reduce groundwater inflow into drift and the hydraulic conductivity in surrounding rock may decrease more than one order of magnitude before grouting.

Grouting is practically important to reduce groundwater inflow into a cavern for construction of underground facilities. Studies on the grouting performance were carried out in Mizunami URL excavated in crystalline rock. The aims of these studies are to evaluate the applicability of existing grouting technology and to develop the methodology for the estimation of grouting performance, e.g., the extension of grout, hydraulic property change. The results suggests that the existing grouting technology is effective to reduce groundwater inflow into drifts and the hydraulic conductivity in the surrounding rock may decrease by two orders of magnitude before grouting.

The Mizunami Underground Research Laboratory, one of the main facilities in Japan for research and development of the technology for high-level radioactive waste disposal, is being constructed in Mizunami City. By October 2005, the excavation of the Main and Ventilation Shafts had reached depths of 172m and 191m, respectively. However, shaft sinking was then suspended for about 6 months due to high concentrations of boron and fluorine in the inflow water in the shafts, which exceeded the environmental discharge limits. To resolve this problem, an additional effluent treatment system was adopted, and shaft sinking restarted in April 2006. Pilot boring investigations were performed at the both shafts. This report shows the status and subject of investigations and construction of Mizunami Underground Research Laboratory.

The results from the pilot borehole investigations conducted at FY2006 at Mizunami Underground Research Laboratory are presented. The investigations are carried out to obtain various information for the planning of water treatment facility, planning for the grouting and revision for the construction design by understanding the geological environment below the excavating area. From the result of the investigations, important section of the inflow water and hydrochemical composition which should be treated in the water treatment facility have been obtained. Required informations on the planning for the future construction of MIU are addressed.

This study carried out to confirm the applicability of existing grouting technology for reducing of inflow and find the investigation methods as a part of contract study with METI. The site, where called refuge niche, was located at 200 m sub-stage in Mizunami URL. Pre-excavation grouting was performed before excavation of refuge niche and the various investigations/modeling were carried out for pre-excavation grouting area around refuge niche. The results suggested that existing grouting technology is applicable to reduce inflow and the permeability in grouted area may decrease max, two order of magnitudes.
