Event Description

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the Los Alamos National Security, LLC (LANS), have submitted a Class 3 permit modification request to modify the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) Hazardous Waste Facility Permit.

The modification revises the Permit to incorporate changes agreed upon by the April 21, 2017 Settlement Agreement, resolving a permit appeal filed in the United States District Court for the District of New Mexico (Case No. 10-01251). The changes describe the integration of the Permit with the 2016 Order on Consent, addition of a definition for "regulated unit," removal of a prohibition for the delegation of the Permittees' responsibilities, removal a clause regulating the Radioactive Liquid Waste Treatment Facility at Technical Area 50 and removal of references for the disposal of non-hazardous radioactive waste from the closure plans for LANL permitted hazardous waste management units.
