TENORM (Technologically Enhanced Naturally Occuring Radioactive Materials) are naturally occurring radioactive material whose radionuclide concentrations are increased by or as a result of past or present human practices. These materials can be generated as part of Oil and Gas exploration and production activities or any other industrial process that removes and concentrates metals such as water treatment. There are no Federal rules for the management of these materials and the State of Colorado has been using guidance to help provide regulatory relief and direction to generators and disposal facilties that possess these materials. CDPHE has now been charged with promulgating regulations to deal with these materials.
