NRC Yucca Mountain Directorate: Follow-up to the August 26 Public Teleconference

The following was emailed out by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Yucca Mountain Directorate on August 27th:

Greetings,

Thank you to all who participated in yesterday’s teleconference concerning the process for submitting comments on the NRC staff’s draft supplement.  We heard a number of requests or concerns and are working to address them as resources allow. 

Documents related to the supplement, as well as other recent documents concerning the proposed repository licensing process are available at http://www.nrc.gov/waste/hlw-disposal/key-documents.html#er (or, from the NRC’s main web page, go to the Radioactive Waste tab and select High-Level Waste Disposal in the drop-down list, and then go to Key Documents).  As we mentioned during yesterday’s call, we’ll be posting the handouts that we’ll provide at the meetings, and we’ll post links to other documents that are available in ADAMS. 

Information about all of the NRC’s public meetings can be found on the public meetings web page -- from the NRC’s main web page, go to Public Meetings and Involvement and select the Public Meeting Schedule item in the drop-down list.  The direct link for this page is http://meetings.nrc.gov/pmns/mtg.  This link is for the NRC’s newly-implemented public meetings announcement system, and we sincerely regret the confusion you experienced because this link was not included in the Federal Register notice. 

Here’s a link to the NRC staff’s draft “Supplement to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Environmental Impact Statement for a Geologic Repository for the Disposal of Spent Nuclear Fuel and High Level Radioactive Waste at Yucca Mountain, Nye County, Nevada,” NUREG-2184: http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-collections/nuregs/staff/sr2184/
