Event: DOE-NRC Technical Conference Call on the Draft Waste Incidental to Reprocessing Evaluation for Closure of Waste Management Area C at the Hanford Site
Event Date: Thursday, October 11, 2018 11 am – 1:30 pm PST
 


The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is seeking public comment on the Draft Waste Incidental to Reprocessing (WIR) Evaluation for Closure of Waste Management Area C (WMA C) at the Hanford Site.  

The Draft WIR Evaluation is an important step toward closure of the 16 single-shell tanks at Hanford's C Tank Farm, also known as Waste Management Area C (WMA C). Waste from these tanks has been successfully retrieved, and safely closing the emptied  tanks would be a significant achievement in DOE’s Hanford cleanup mission. DOE has a record of safely and successfully closing emptied underground waste tanks at the Savannah River Site in South Carolina and the Idaho National Laboratory in Idaho.

DOE is consulting with the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) on the Draft WIR Evaluation and the underlying performance assessment. Following consideration of public comments and NRC consultation, DOE anticipates issuing a final WIR Evaluation.
