Filed under: Sierra Nevada (Calif. and Nev.). The Yucca Mountain Nuclear Waste Repository, as designated by the Nuclear Waste Policy Act amendments ofis a proposed deep geological repository storage facility within Yucca Mountain for spent nuclear fuel and other high-level radioactive waste in the United States.

The site is located on federal land adjacent to the Nevada Test Site in Nye County, Nevada, about 80 mi ( km. NOTE: Page numbers in these comments refer to "Technical Bases for Yucca Mountain Standards," a report from the National Research Council's Board on Radioactive Waste Management, Committee on Technical Bases for Yucca Mountain Standards which I will call "YMS Committee" for brevity.

The repository means the proposed Yucca Mountain. Content About a Mountain is a non-fiction book by the American essayist John d’Agata. Focusing on the US government’s proposal to build a nuclear waste storage facility at Yucca Mountain just outside Las Vegas, the book weaves environmental reportage with a meditation on the meaning of Vegas.

Yucca Mountain is a mountain in Nevada, near its border with California, approximately miles ( km) northwest of Las d in the Great Basin, Yucca Mountain is east of the Amargosa Desert, south of the Nevada Test and Training Range and in the Nevada National Security is the site of the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository, which is currently identified by.

The Agency received the NAS Report, entitled Technical Bases for Yucca Mountain Standards, on August 1, The report provided many findings and recommendations for the technical issues involved in the rulemaking and clear separation of policy issues from technical issues.

The Energy Policy Act of requires the EPA to promulgate a health-based standard, in lieu of any other radioactive waste standards for the Yucca Mountain si.

The plan was added to the fiscal budget reconciliation bill signed on Decem EPA’s role is to set standards for protecting the public and the environment from exposure to radiation from potential releases from the waste in Yucca Mountain. In Section of the Energy Policy Act ofCongress charged EPA with setting site-specific radiation protection standards.

The National Academy of Sciences releases “Technical Bases for Yucca Mountain Standards,” which contains the recommendations on which EPA based their standards.

bases, for positions which the NRC may choose to advocate in its interactions with the NAS Committee on Technical Bases for Yucca Mountain Standards (NAS Committee). The recommendations should assure adequate health and safety of the public and lead to regulatory standards.

The National Academy of Sciences' Committee on Technical Bases for Yucca Mountain Standards recommended that standards for the disposal of high-level radioactive waste at Yucca Mountain should 1. set a limit on the risk of individuals, 2. use the critical group approach, as defined by the international Commission on Radiological Protection; 3.

define the critical group using present Author: U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.the findings and recommendations of NAS in its report titled: "Technical Bases for Yucca Mountain Standards"(NAS Report, Docket A, Item II-A-1).

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) will incorporate EPA’s final standards into its licensing regulations. The Department of Energy (DOE) must demonstrate compliance with these standards.
