Yucca Mountain Standards

In the development of the planned Yucca Mountain repository, EPA’s single role is to set human health and environmental radiation protection standards. The repository will not be allowed to open unless it meets EPA’s requirements.

EPA has developed amendments to the final standards for the planned Yucca Mountain high-level waste disposal facility that are fully protective of human health. In developing these amendments, EPA considered substantive public comments received during the public comment period. The amendments to the final standards were signed by the Administrator on September 30, 2008.

The following documents contain the final standards and related information:
