FY-1980. Although preparation of the comprehensive environmental impact
reports for the demonstration sites is the responsibility of the contractor,
the Environmental Assessment Task of the STES Program will be responsible for
preparing the official DOE Environmental Assessment for each selected Phase II
During FY-1980 the staff on this subtask drafted the ATES Environmental
Assessment. The Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) provided primary techni-
cal support for development of the EA.
Environmental Data Acquisition and Evaluation
Acquisition of environmental data is an important activity of the Environ-
mental Assessment task. The technical and engineering activities of ATES tech-
nology development and the environmental concerns and environmental regulatory
requirements must be integrated. The objective is to ensure that meaningful
environmental data are acquired and fully evaluated during the feasibility
testing and demonstration phases to support eventual commercial use. This
activity will support the test facility activities, the demonstration pro-
jects, and the other technical support tasks. The information generated in
this support area will be used in the NEPA environmental documents and will
address anticipated concerns of the general public.
Environmental Advisory Assistance
The Environmental Assessment Task will provide environmental advisory
assistance to the STES Program. The staff will answer internal and external
queries concerning environmental matters, assist STES personnel in evaluating
demonstration proposals for environmental considerations, evaluate contractor
environmental documents, and assist in preparing of program-level reports and
With the exception of the increased FY-1980 and 1981 assistance to con-
tractors on demonstration projects, this support effort should be fairly
uniform throughout the program's lifetime.
