EIS-0245-SA-02: Supplement Analysis

Management of Spent Nuclear Fuel from the K Basins at the Hanford Site, Richland, Washington

DOE prepared this Supplement Analysis (SA) to evaluate whether the potential environmental impacts of the proposed action – transferring canisters of spent nuclear fuel from the 105-K East Basin to the 105-K West (KW) Basin for final packing into multi-canister overpacks using existing equipment at KW - have been adequately considered in existing NEPA analyses. Based on the analysis in the SA, DOE determined that the proposed action does not constitute significant new circumstances or information relevant to environmental concerns, therefore no additional review under NEPA is required.
