EIS-0380-SA-02: Supplement Analysis

Transport and Storage of High-Activity Sealed Sources From Uruguay and Other Locations

This supplement analysis (SA) was prepared to assess whether there are substantial changes, or significant new circumstances or information, relevant to environmental concerns associated with continuing the National Nuclear Security Administration's (NNSA's) activities to recover and manage high-activity beta/gamma sealed sources relative to analysis in the Site-Wide Environmental Impact Statement for Continued Operation of Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, New Mexico (LANL SWEIS) and other relevant National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) reviews. This SA analyzes an aspect of the Off-Site Source Recovery Project (OSRP) that was not addressed in the LANL SWEIS (i.e., transportation of sealed sources recovered from foreign countries to the United States through the global commons 1 via commercial cargo aircraft) and examines the role of a commercial facility in managing these sealed sources.
