(c) If more than one radionuclide is released, the following conditions shall also be satisfied:
1. The license shall determine the fraction of the limit in Table III of Schedule RHS 8-30 represented by its releases into sanitary sewerage. This shall be done by dividing the actual monthly average concentration of each radionuclide released by the licensee into the sewer by the concentration of that radionuclide listed in Table III of Schedule RHS 8-30; and
2. The sum of the fractions for each radionuclide required by part 1 of this subparagraph does not exceed unity; and
(d) The total quantity of licensed and other radioactive material that the licensee releases into the sanitary sewerage system in a year does not exceed:
1. 5 curies (185 GBq) of hydrogen-3;
2. 1 curie (37 GBq) of carbon-14; and
3. 1 curie (37 GBq) of all other radioactive materials combined.
