Title: Waste Isolation Pilot Plant CH TRU preoperational checkout plan

Abstract

The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) 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) transuranic defense waste in bedded salt. In addition to these full-scale demonstrations, WIPP will provide facilities for experimentation with radioactive materials. This plan documents the scope for the contact handled (CH) transuranic (TRU) waste handling systems preoperational checkout at WIPP. Results from the CH TRU preoperational checkout establish the basis for a preoperations checkout report to be used for WIPP operational readiness review activities. The report will be provided to the State of New Mexico, prior to WIPP waste receipt, and will satisfy, in part, the Agreement for Consultation and Cooperation between the US Department of Energy (DOE) and the State of New Mexico. The objective of the preoperational checkout is to demonstrate that CH TRU waste can be received at WIPP, transported underground (U/G) and emplaced in the U/G repository safely while meeting WIPP Quality Assurance requirements. 6 refs., 6 figs., 10 tabs.
