In summary, 100 drivers were treated by June 1999. Blanket treatment of 150 kg of uranium per month was successfully completed in August 1999. Thirteen blankets had been treated by the time of the meeting (September 19, 1999). Ten radioactive demonstration ceramic waste cans were produced in the summer of 1999. The Environmental Impact Statement was in the public comment period at the time of the meeting.
