Annual Transportation Report for Radioactive Waste Shipments to and from the Nevada Test Site: Fiscal Year 2009 [open pdf - 2MB]
Following the Department of Energy's (DOE) publication of the "Final Environmental Impact Statement for the Nevada Test Site and Off-Site Locations in the State of Nevada" (DOE/EIS 0243), the DOE, Nevada Operations Office/Nevada Site Office compiled a Mitigation Operation Plan to address issues in the report. One of the elements in the plan was the publication of an annual transportation report, summarizing "waste shipments to and from the Nevada Test Site (NTS) Radioactive Waste Management Site (RWMS) at Area 5 and Area 3." [...] "This document satisfies requirements regarding low-level radioactive waste (LLW) and mixed low-level radioactive waste (MLLW) transported to and from the NTS during FY 2009. In addition, this document provides shipment, volume, and route information on transuranic (TRU) waste shipped from the NTS to the Idaho National Laboratory, near Idaho Falls, Idaho."
