Description
 
During the Cold War, the Dept. of Energy (DoE) produced nuclear materials for nuclear weapons at its Savannah River Site (SRS) by dissolving highly radioactive spent nuclear fuel from reactors in a facility known as H-Canyon. DoE planned to end H-Canyon operations in 2007 but now plans to continue H-Canyon operations until 2019 to process additional nuclear material. This report: (1) identifies the types of nuclear materials DoE will process using H-Canyon and its associated costs of operation; (2) determine whether SRSís radioactive waste storage tanks and associated nuclear waste facilities are capable of handling the additional waste generated by H-Canyon; and (3) describe H-Canyonís compliance with safety and environ. requirements.
