DOE’s report to Congress on cleanup progress

Please read article, cited after the quote. Articles open in a new window.

Here is the link for the report by the Dept. of Energy’s Environmental Management program, as directed by the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008.

Here’s a little excerpt from the big document:

“The current EM life-cycle cost estimate range, which covers the period of 1997 through completion, is $274 to $330 billion. This includes $69 billion in actual costs from 1997 through 2007, and an additional estimate of $205 to $260 billion to complete EM’s remaining mission. EM is analyzing its cost and schedule project baselines to further optimize the program. This strategic planning effort will concentrate on the technical, programmatic, and performance challenges facing the cleanup projects. It is focused on footprint reduction and near-term completions to reduce monitoring and maintenance costs and on alternative approaches to dispositioning tank waste, excess SNM and SNF.
