'CAU 426 consists of one Corrective Action Site (CAS) which is comprised of four waste trenches (CAS Number RG-23-001-RGCS). The trenches were excavated to receive solid waste generated in support of Operation Roller Coaster, primarily the Double Tracks Test in 1963, and were subsequently baclctllled. The Double Tracks Test involved the use of live animals to assess the biological hazards associated with the non-nuclear detonation of plutonium-bearing devices (i.e., inhalation uptake of plutonium aerosol) (DOE, 1996).'
