Title: TRU waste shipment dry run preoperational checkout plan

Abstract

The WIPP (Waste Isolation Pilot Plant) is a major system acquisition authorized as a research and development facility to demonstrate safe disposal of both remote handled (RH) and contact handled (CH) TRU defense waste in bedded salt. In addition to these full-scale demonstrations, the WIPP will provide facilities for experimentation with radioactive materials. This plan documents the scope for the preoperational checkout of the shipment of transuranic defense waste from generator/storage (shipper) sites to the WIPP facility. As readiness is a phased effort, portions or all of this plan may be exercised at a given time. It has been prepared in compliance with WP 06-2, WIPP Waste Transportation Manual. Results from the preoperational checkout establish the basis for a preoperations checkout report to be used for WIPP and generator/storage site operational readiness review activities. A separate preoperational checkout and preoperational checkout report will be performed and prepared for each site upon completion of the demonstration. 7 refs.
