EA-1137: Finding of No Significant Impact

Nonnuclear Consolidation Weapons Production Support Project for the Kansas City Plant Kansas City, Missouri

Based on the analysis of impacts in the EA, the proposed action to use an electrochemical etching process on solid depleted uranium components at the DOE's Kansas City Plant would not significantly affect the quality of the human environment within the meaning of NEPA.  Therefore, the Department is issuing this finding of no significant impact and the preparation of an environmental impact statement is not required.  Furthermore, there is no practicable alternative to locating the proposed action in the floodplain (because the Kansas City Plant is located entirely within the floodplain), and the proposed action would be designed to avoid or minimize impacts to the floodplain (including limiting construction to an already developed area).
