Review Board Checking in May 15 on Yucca Mountain Work

The U.S. Nuclear Waste Technical Review Board will meet May 15 in Arlington, Va., to discuss the latest U.S. Department of Energy activities related to development of the repository for spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste at Nevada's Yucca Mountain.

The board is scheduled to discuss several topics, including the use of depleted uranium oxide, a drilling program carried out by Inyo County in California, waste package designs, DOE's saturated zone model, near-field chemistry, and volcanic hazards analysis.

The board was created by the Nuclear Waste Policy Amendments Act of 1987 as an independent review of the technical and scientific validity of DOE activities to dispose, package, and transport spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste. This meeting will be open to the public; the site is the Crowne Plaza Hotel, 1480 Crystal Drive, at 703-416-1600.
