Endstates Initiative

Scientific and technical, institutional and regulatory, and closure management challenges are currently hindering cleanup and closure of remaining environmental legacy waste sites across the Department of Energy (DOE) complex. There are no simple solutions for these integrated challenges and they demand innovative scientific and technical solutions and approaches, developed with the regulatory community.  DOE Office of Environmental Management (EM), Office of Soil and Groundwater Remediation is developing and implementing a systems-based, risk-informed framework to help site owners meet these challenges.
