PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The Waste Isolatian Pilot Plant (WIPP) opened on March 26,1999, for the permanent disposal of defense-generated transuranic (TRU) waste generated by and temporarily stored at the production sites. With WIPP open, efforts are now focused on achieving the Department of Energy's (DOE'S) strategic vision for WIPP and the National TRU Waste Program (NTP). This vision is to remove all TRU waste from DOE closure sites, to dispose of all legacy TRU waste from DOE sites with an ongoing nuclear mission, and to dispose of all newly generated TRU waste as it is generated.
