EA-1541: Finding of No Significant Impact

Demolition of Building 51 and the Bevatron, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Berkeley, California (duplicate no. provided as EA-1561)

The Department of Energy has completed an environmental assessment that evaluates the impacts of demolition of the Bevatron and the structure that houses it, Building 51, at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). The primary project objectives are to eliminate potential hazards associated with Building 51; to reduce the burden on LBNL maintenance resources; to free space for potential future activities; and to help satisfy DOE policy requiring that the square footage of new construction at a DOE facility be balanced by elimination of an equivalent amount of excess space.
