An excerpt from ISNetworld® RAVS®* Safety plan Natural Occurring Radioactive Material – NORM Program

    There are two types of NORM material: Discrete and Diffuse.

 The first, discrete NORM, has a relatively high radioactivity concentration in a very small volume, such as a radium source used in medical procedures or level gauges. Because of its relatively high concentration of radioactivity, this type of NORM poses a direct radiation exposure hazard.

 The second type, diffuse NORM, has a much lower concentration of radioactivity, but is spread out over a large volume of material, such as contaminated soil. Diffuse NORM poses a different type of problem because of its high volume and low concentration of radioactive material. The following are six sources of diffuse NORM:

 Metal Mining & Processing Waste

  1. Coal Ash
  2. Phosphate Waste
  3. Uranium Mining Overburden
  4. Oil and Gas Production Wastes
  5. Water Treatment Residues

 Diffuse NORM may pose a health hazard because of its many uses. For example, though most metal-mining waste is stored near where it is generated, small amounts have been used as construction backfill and road building materials. It is also used in concrete and wallboard.
