EIS-0310: Notice of Intent to Prepare a Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement

Accomplishing Expanded Civilian Nuclear Energy Research and Development and Isotope Production Missions in the United States, Including the Role of the Fast Flux Test Facility

The Secretary of Energy recently announced DOE’s intent to prepare a programmatic environmental impact statement (PEIS) on accomplishing these new missions through the proposed enhancement of the existing infrastructure, including the possible role of the Fast Flux Test Facility (FFTF), located at DOE’s Hanford Site near Richland, Washington. This PEIS will analyze the potential environmental impacts of alternative ways to meet the projected irradiation needs for the next 35 years.
