EIS-0200-SA-01: Supplement Analysis

Disposal of Contact-Handled Transuranic Waste at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP)

DOE is proposing to revise the “where to prepare” decision that was based on the Waste Management Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement, DOE/EIS-0200-F, May 1997 (WM PEIS). The proposed change, as described more fully below, is to create a centralized capability at WIPP that would be used to characterize annually up to 1,250 cubic meters of DOE’s contact-handled transuranic (CH-TRU) waste out of about 7,000 cubic meters expected to be received annually for disposal at WIPP.
