Title: Lessons Learned from Annual Inspection Process - 12329

Abstract

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Legacy Management's (LM) mission is to manage DOE's post-closure responsibilities and ensure the future protection of human health and the environment. LM has control and custody of legacy land, structures, and facilities and is responsible for maintaining them at levels suitable for their long-term use. As defined by the DOE guidance document Long-Term Stewardship Planning Guidance for Closure Sites, long-term stewardship refers to all activities necessary to ensure protection of human health and the environment. These activities include, but are not limited to, 'all engineered and institutional controls (ICs) designed to contain or to prevent exposure to residual contamination and waste, such as surveillance activities, record-keeping activities, inspections, groundwater monitoring, maintenance of other barriers and contained structures, access control, and posting signs'. The development and management of ICs have been, and continue to be, critical to the success of LM surveillance and maintenance activities. (authors)
