  • This document is the Baseline Inventory Report for the transuranic (alpha-bearing) wastes stored at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) in New Mexico. Waste stream profiles including origin, applicable EPA codes, typical isotopic composition, typical waste densities, and typical rates of waste generation for each facility are presented for wastes stored at the WIPP.
  • This report consists of information related to the waste forms at the WIPP facility from the waste originators. Data for retrievably stored, projected and total wastes are given.
  • WIPP-DOE-157, ''Data Package Format for Certified Transuranic Waste for the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP),'' specifies the arrangement of data which are required to be reported to the WIPP for transuranic (TRU) waste to be received. Contractors may also choose to use this format as a vehicle to transmit TRU waste information to interim storage sites prior to the opening of the WIPP. These instructions have been prepared as a reference guide for those personnel responsible for the transmission of the Data Package to the WIPP. WIPP-DOE-157, Revision 1, does not contain side bars indicating passages that were revised becausemore » the entire document was reorganized and rewritten. Because of the prevalence of interactive databases that do not use 80-column cards to input data, data package input specified in WIPP-DOE-157 is no longer structured for 80-column cards. This restructuring also permits greater flexibility in data field sizes. Certain fields were added to the data package, and others were deleted. For those sites having automated data processing systems available for use, it should be understood that the computer system will place the information into the specified format for transmittal. Therefore, the waste generator need not be concerned with the specifics of how the data items are arranged in the format, but rather with being certain that the required information has been input into a computer system. At the time of shipment, the computer system will retrieve the required information for all the packages in that shipment and write the information in the Data Package Format for transmission to the WIPP (or interim storage site) over the specified communications system. Therefore, these instructions are primarily for use by data-processing personnel to aid them in programming the system to provide the transmittal information in the Data Package Format.« less
  • The purpose of the WIPP No-Migration Variance Petition is to demonstrate, according to the requirements of RCRA {section}3004(d) and 40 CFR {section}268.6, that to a reasonable degree of certainty, there will be no migration of hazardous constituents from the facility for as long as the wastes remain hazardous. The DOE submitted the petition to the EPA in March 1989. Upon completion of its initial review, the EPA provided to DOE a Notice of Deficiencies (NOD). DOE responded to the EPA`s NOD and met with the EPA`s reviewers of the petition several times during 1989. In August 1989, EPA requested thatmore » DOE submit significant additional information addressing a variety of topics including: waste characterization, ground water hydrology, geology and dissolution features, monitoring programs, the gas generation test program, and other aspects of the project. This additional information was provided to EPA in January 1990 when DOE submitted Revision 1 of the Addendum to the petition. For clarity and ease of review, this document includes all of these submittals, and the information has been updated where appropriate. This document is divided into the following sections: Introduction, 1.0: Facility Description, 2.0: Waste Description, 3.0; Site Characterization, 4.0; Environmental Impact Analysis, 5.0; Prediction and Assessment of Infrequent Events, 6.0; and References, 7.0.« less
