EIS-0310-SA-02: Supplement Analysis

Nuclear Infrastructure Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement Supplement Analysis Determination for Plutonium-238 Production for Radioisotope Power Systems

DOE  prepared this SA to evaluate the potential environmental impacts associated with its determination that the 2001 ROD offers the optimum approach for production of Pu-238. The SA helped to determine if there are significant new circumstances or information relevant to environmental concerns which would warrant preparation of a supplement to the NI PEIS or a new EIS, or that the 2001 decision can be implemented without any further NEPA review. DOE completed the SA in September 2013 and has made the determination that there are no substantial changes to the original proposal for production of Pu-238 analyzed in the NI PEIS or new circumstances or information relevant to environmental concerns that would warrant preparation of a supplement to the NI PEIS or a new EIS, and that the 2001 decision made in the NI PEIS ROD for Pu-238 production can be implemented without further NEPA review.
