Title: 4th Quarter and Annual Transportation Report FY2018

Abstract

This report satisfies the U.S. Department of Energy, National Nuclear Security Administration Nevada Field Office (NNSA/NFO) commitment to prepare a quarterly summary of waste shipments to the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS) Radioactive Waste Management Complex (RWMC) in Area 5. This report summarizes the fourth quarter of fiscal year (FY) 2018 and serves as an annual report for the following types of shipments: Low-Level Radioactive Waste (LLW); Mixed Low-Level Radioactive Waste (MLLW); Classified Non-Radioactive (CNR) Waste; Classified Non-Radioactive Hazardous (CNRH) Waste; Tabular summaries are provided that include the following: Number and external volume of LLW, MLLW, and CNR/CNRH shipments; Waste generators for LLW, MLLW, and CNR/CNRH shipments to and on the NNSS; Carriers for LLW, MLLW, and CNR/CNRH shipments to and on the NNSS; Waste generator shipments by quarter; Highway routes used by carriers; Incident and accident data applicable to LLW, MLLW, and CNR/CNRH shipments. In this report, shipments are accounted for upon arrival at the NNSS, while disposal volumes are accounted for upon waste burial. Volume reports showing cubic feet (ft 3) generated using the Low-Level Waste Information System may vary slightly due to rounding conventions for conversions from cubic meters to cubic feet. Shipments are transported by motormore » carriers that are either identified on the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Motor Carrier Evaluation Program (MCEP) list, have been evaluated in a manner similar to the MCEP process, or are government vehicles. Government vehicles are not evaluated using the MCEP process but are fully compliant with all transportation regulations and requirements.« less
