ETEBA to Host Public Information Session on DOE’s Proposed Disposal Facility
The Energy, Technology and Environmental Business Association (ETEBA) is pleased to announce that it will host a Public Information Session regarding the U.S. Dept. of Energy’s proposal to construct an additional on-site low-level waste disposal facility on the Oak Ridge Reservation. The session will be held on Wednesday, July 27, 3:00 to 5:00 p.m., at Pollard Auditorium, 210 Badger Avenue, Oak Ridge. The public is cordially invited to attend.
The U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge Office of Environmental Management (OREM) has identified four site alternatives for the proposed Environmental Management Disposal Facility (EMDF). The purpose of this session is to provide the public with information about these four sites in preparation for the formal public comment period that will occur later this year. Representatives of DOE, the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC), and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will provide an overview of the site alternatives as well as the regulatory issues and requirements associated with these four sites, and will be on hand to address questions from the public following the presentations.
