Opening of Public Comment Period for DOE's Proposed Plans

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has completed the investigation and evaluation of decontamination and decommissioning (D&D) and waste disposal alternatives of the Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant (PORTS) through a comprehensive Remedial Investigation and Feasibility Study process.  The DOE now invites public comment on two Proposed Plans - one for the buildings being considered in the Process Buildings and Complex Facilities D&D decision and one for the Site-Wide Waste Disposition decision.  Each Proposed Plan presents a preferred alternative and a detailed evaluation of all the alternatives considered.

Ohio EPA has concurred with both Remedial Investigation Feasibility Studies and Proposed Plans.
