Title: Review of Tank Lay-Up Status at US Department of Energy Radioactive Waste Tank Sites

Abstract

During fiscal year (FY) 2001 as part of a Tanks Focus Area strategic intiative, tank lay-up options were developed and evaluated for the two high-level waste (HLW) storage tanks at the West Valley Demonstration Project. As follow-on task, a list of key waste tank contacts throughout the US Department of Energy complex was developed. Visits were then made to the primary DOE sites with radioactive waste storage tanks to discuss the concept and applicablility of tank lay-up. This report documents the results of individual discussions with tank closure staff at the four DOE Sites concerning tank closure status and plans as well as lay-up options and activities.
