EA-1464: Final Environmental Assessment

Proposed Corrective Measures at Material Disposal Area H within Technical Area 54 at Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, New Mexico, National Nuclear Security Administration, Los Alamos Site Office

DOE, NNSA has the Congressionally assigned responsibility for the administration of LANL, including the management of radioactive and hazardous wastes generated by LANL mission support activities. As a result of historical LANL waste disposal practices, wastes disposed of within shafts at MDA H have been identified by NMED as potentially having a future adverse effect on human health and the environment. A CMS Report prepared for MDA H evaluated various corrective measure options for MDA H. DOE now needs to implement a corrective measure for MDA H so as to comply with the legal requirements of RCRA and the Atomic Energy Act of 1954.
