EIS-0291: Notice of Intent to Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement

High Flux Beam Reactor Transition Project at the Brookhaven National Laboratory, Upton, New York

The EIS will evaluate the range of reasonable alternatives regarding the future of the reactor, as required by NEPA, including: (1) no action (maintaining HFBR in a shutdown and defueled condition); (2) resume operation at a power level of 30 megawatt (MW) or up to 60 MW; (3) resume operation and enhance the facility; and (4) permanent shutdown with eventual decontamination and decommissioning (D&D). DOE invites individuals, organizations, and agencies to present oral and/or written comments concerning the scope of the EIS, including the environmental issues and alternatives the EIS should analyze.
