Description

As established by the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982, as amended, the United States Department of Energy`s Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Management is responsible for managing and disposing of the Nation`s spent nuclear fuel from civilian nuclear power reactors and high-level radioactive waste from defense activities. The program will provide leadership in developing and implementing strategies that assure the health and safety of the public and workers, protect the environment, and merit public confidence, in an economically viable manner. To accomplish the program`s mission, we are developing a waste management system culminating in a geologic repository for permanent disposal deep beneath the surface of the earth. Our goals include: (1) determining whether Yucca Mountain, Nevada, designated by the Nuclear Waste Policy Amendments Act of 1987 as the only site currently to be evaluated, is suitable for a geologic repository; (2) resolving the issue of acceptance of spent fuel from nuclear utilities in 1998; (3) developing more effective working relationships with external parties who have an interest in the waste disposal mission; and (4) establishing a new funding mechanism that will permit efficient and effective execution of our mission and achievement of our goals. This report contains details of the program`s accomplishments and activities over the past fiscal year and the audited financial statements for the Nuclear Waste Fund.
