EA-1822: Final Environmental Assessment

Idaho National Laboratory Stand-Off Experiment (SOX) Range

The objective of this environmental assessment (EA) is to evaluate the potential environmental impacts of creating and operating a high-energy x-ray Stand-Off eXperiment (SOX) Range at the INL Site by evaluating two alternatives: (1) the proposed action, and (2) a No Action alternative. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) reviewed several possible alternatives and determined that the only reasonable alternative involved locating the project at a previously disturbed location north of Test Area North (TAN)/Technical Support Facility (TSF) to meet the purpose and need and satisfy program requirements; no off-site locations met the site selection criteria.
