Long-Term Institutional Management of U.S. Department of Energy Legacy Waste Sites APPENDIX A Committee's Statement of Task The purpose of this project is to assess approaches for developing criteria for transition from active to passive remediation and subsequent long-term disposition, including institutional control with monitoring and surveillance, of U.S. Department of Energy waste sites and facilities such as Hanford, Washington; Savannah River, South Carolina; Idaho National Engineering Laboratory; and Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Tennessee. Such criteria will include technical feasibility, future land use, performance assessment of remediation activities, and risks to health, safety, and the environment associated with long-term site disposition. Relevant federal and state regulatory requirements and agreements will be included. Appropriate approaches will be applicable to facilities such as high-level radioactive waste tanks (including related facilities and contaminated environments), buried radioactive waste (such as the Hanford low-level waste disposal sites), and on environments contaminated by nuclear testing (such as the Nevada Test Site weapons test event location).
