Public Comment Period on the Draft Waste Incidental to Reprocessing Evaluation for Vitrified Low-Activity Waste

 

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is holding a 120-day public comment period on its Draft Waste Incidental to Reprocessing (WIR) Evaluation for Vitrified Low-Activity Waste (VLAW). The Draft WIR Evaluation analyzes whether the VLAW meets waste management criteria, is incidental to the reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel, and may be managed (disposed of at the Hanford Site) as low-level radioactive waste in the future as has always been envisioned.

The comment period is from May 26 to Sept. 26, 2020. A public webinar meeting will be held on June 10, from 1 to 4 p.m. PT. To participate via GoToWebinar, please follow the instructions below:
