EIS-0337-SA-01: Supplement Analysis

West Valley Demonstration Project Waste Management

The Department of Energy’s (DOE) West Valley Demonstration Project (WVDP) prepared a final waste management environmental impact statement (WVDP WM ElS) that examined the potential environmental impacts associated with the proposed shipment of radioactive wastes that were either in storage or would be generated over a 10-year period (DOE 2003). Since the EIS was issued, new information has become available regarding the volume and type of low level radioactive waste (LLW), and DOE now proposes to use additional disposal locations for LLW waste for which the transportation impacts were not analyzed in the WVDP WM EIS.
