DOE-NRC Technical Conference Call on the Draft Waste Incidental to Reprocessing Evaluation for Closure of Waste Management Area C at the Hanford Site

 

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) are hosting technical conference calls for the NRC to ask follow-up questions on DOE’s response to the Requests for Additional Information on the Draft Waste Incidental to Reprocessing Evaluation for Waste Management Area C (Draft WIR Evaluation).

 

Wednesday, Nov. 6, 12 – 2 p.m. PT

Thursday, Nov. 7, 12 – 2 p.m. PT

Tuesday, Nov. 12, 12 – 2 p.m. PT

The Draft WIR Evaluation is an important step toward closure of the 16 single-shell tanks at Hanford’s C Tank Farm. Waste from the tanks has been successfully retrieved, and safely closing the tanks would be a significant achievement in the Hanford cleanup mission.

 

The Draft WIR Evaluation demonstrates that the tanks (from which waste was retrieved), ancillary structures and their residuals at the time of closure will meet the WIR criteria.

 

DOE held a public comment period from June 4 to Nov. 7, 2018, and is consulting with the NRC on the evaluation and associated performance assessment. Following consideration of comments received during the public comment period and NRC consultation, DOE anticipates issuing a final WIR Evaluation for Waste Management Area C. Next, DOE may potentially determine whether the stabilized tanks, ancillary structures, and their residuals at the time of closure are wastes incidental to the reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel, are not high-level waste, and can be managed as low-level radioactive waste. For more information on the Draft WIR Evaluation and underlying performance assessment, visit https://go.usa.gov/xVmkc
