National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) prepared DOE/EA-2159 to analyze the potential environmental impacts associated with the proposed relocation of most of the Y-12 Development Organization’s operations to an existing offsite facility located at 103 Palladium Way, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, approximately 9.5 miles west of the Y-12 National Security Complex. NNSA’s proposed action is to acquire a 21-acre site at 103 Palladium Way, slightly modify the existing facility, relocate equipment and materials, and house the Y-12 Development Organization operations in the modified facility for the next 15 or more years.
