IDAHO FALLS, Idaho – Brad Bugger, a program analyst with the DOE Idaho Operations Office, briefs the EM Site-Specific Advisory Board (SSAB) Chairs during an Idaho National Laboratory (INL) Site tour last week. The group visited the Radioactive Waste Management Complex, Advanced Mixed Waste Treatment Project, Experimental Breeder Reactor-I, Advanced Test Reactor, and Integrated Waste Treatment Unit. The SSAB Chairs meet twice a year, rotating among EM sites. The SSAB was created to involve stakeholders more directly in EM’s cleanup decisions, providing advice and recommendations on the cleanup and environmental management activities.
Nate Loftus with Fluor Idaho, EM’s Idaho National Laboratory Site contractor, addresses the EM Site-Specific Advisory Board Chairs inside the Transuranic Storage Area/Retrieval Enclosure, where thousands of waste drums await shipment to EM’s Waste Isolation Pilot Plant for permanent disposal.
