EIS-0453: Final Environmental Impact Statement

Recapitalization of Infrastructure Supporting Naval Spent Nuclear Fuel Handling at the Idaho National Laboratory

DOE prepared this Final EIS to evaluate the potential environmental impacts associated with recapitalizing the infrastructure needed to ensure the long-term capability of the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program (NNPP) and to support naval spent nuclear fuel handling capabilities provided by the Expended Core Facility (ECF).  Significant upgrades are necessary to ECF infrastructure and water pools to continue safe and environmentally responsible naval spent nuclear fuel handling until at least 2060.
