EIS-0157-SA-01: Supplement Analysis

Continued Operation of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories, Livermore, Oakland Operations Office, Oakland, California

Volume I: Main Report

This supplement analysis (SA) was prepared in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA). It considers whether the Final Environmental Impact Statement and Environmental Impact Report for Continued Operation of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories, Livermore (DOE 1992), hereafter referred to as the “1992 EIS/EIR,” should be supplemented, a new environmental impact statement (EIS) should be prepared, or no further NEPA documentation is required. The main body of this SA focuses on the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) portion of the 1992 EIS/EIR because of the considerable number of LLNL activities relative to those of Sandia National Laboratories, Livermore (SNL) (now known as Sandia National Laboratories/California). The SNL portion of the SA is presented as Appendix A. The SNL component of the SA when compared with the 1992 EIS/EIR indicates that (1) there are no substantial changes to the proposed action relevant to environmental concerns at SNL and (2) there has not been any significant new information uncovered related to environmental concerns there.
