actions taken under it, are

The State is responsible

reviewing, commenting on, and

released in harmful amounts. Each of these laws gives
the State and EPA authority to regulate DOE Oak Ridge
Operations in specific areas of environmental manage-

its own internal policies, called "orders," that govern
how the agency conducts business.
The Division maintains a section devoted to NEPA
that reviews documents concerning DOE's proposed
activities on the ORR. The Division comments on these
documents to help ensure that DOE decisions provide
the widest range of beneficial uses with the least degra-
dation to the environment or risk to health and safety.
Comments reflect the State's policy of promoting deci-
sions that bring with them the least degradation or risk
for the most benefit.

cal 1999 include the following:
