EIS-0380: Notice of Intent to Prepare a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement

Continued Operation of Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, New Mexico

The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), an agency within the DOE, announced its intent to prepare a supplemental site-wide environmental statement (S–SWEIS) to update the analyses presented in the Final Site-Wide Environmental Impact Statement for Continued Operation of the Los Alamos National Laboratory (SWEIS) (DOE/EIS–0238; January 1999).

Multiple comments were received regarding the type of NEPA document that NNSA should prepare, including comments calling for the development of a new SWEIS, rather than a supplement to the 1999 SWEIS (EIS-0238). In response, NNSA announced the preparation of this SWEIS (EIS-0380), instead of the Supplemental SWEIS originally proposed.
