  3. Map of 129 Sites that May Require LTS IFD-0004 02-23-99

  4. 150 • 1996-2000 • Need for LTS Established • Recognize LTS issues • Develop initial LTS baseline • Identify specific LTS challenges • Portions of some sites enter LTS Additional Sites Schedule Uncertain LTS Office formed 100 • LTSM of Large, Complex Sites • Hanford • Oak Ridge • Savannah River • Idaho • 2001-2006 • Build operations for effective LM • Build LTS into cleanup decisions • Develop site LTS transition plans • Develop LTS S&T Roadmap • Establish Office of Legacy Management • Resolve site-specific & nat’l LM issues • Additional portions of sites enter LM No. Sites in Legacy Mgt. • Rapid Pace of • Site Transfers • UMTRCA Title II • FUSRAP sites • Fernald • Mound • National Labs • Rocky Flats • Weldon Spring • Simple Site Transfers • UMTRCA Title I • Small Reactors 50 • 2006- • LTSM program in full operation • Implement site-specific LM plans • Transfer LM responsibilities • Deploy LM technologies 0 1990 2000 2010 2020 2030 2040 Fiscal Year DOE needs a sustainable, long-term approach

  5. Property Transfer/Lease • Lease/Permit Portions to • Other Federal Agencies • Hanford Reach National Monument (DOI/USFWS) • Savannah River (DOA/USFS) • Rocky Flats Wildlife Refuge (DOI/USFWS) Third Party Cleanup • Transfer Portions to Private Sector • Pinellas • Miamisburg • East Tennessee Technology Park Mining and Milling Army COE FUSRAP • Transfer Portions to Local Gov’ts • Los Alamos National Laboratory NRC Licensees Legacy Management Responsibilities are Evolving Department of Energy Responsibility (LM Record Keeping) Sites that Supported Former DOE Missions Transfer of LM Responsibility GSA • Sale to Private Sector Owner • (e.g., Oxnard) • Private Sector Sites • FUSRAP • Mining & Milling • Research • Nuclear Fuel Cycle EM Program Cleanup • Continuing DOE Missions • NA (e.g., Los Alamos, NTS) • SC (e.g., LBL, ORNL) • NE (Argonne-West) MOAs MOUs Permits AEA §161(g) Hall Amendment Waste Repositories (e.g., WIPP) PL 105-119 (1998) Hall Amendment Legacy Management and Long-term Surveillance & Maintenance UMTRCA Title II Shared LTSM MOU NWPA §151

  6. EMS will help with the transition from cleanup to stewardship Consensus on “Criteria” by Federal, State and Local governments & Stakeholders Legacy Management Active Site Remediation Site surveillance Transition Framework and maintenance Information management Application and enforcement of institutional controls Environmental monitoring Develop LTS Planning Implement and Optimize LM Apply Site Transition Framework

  7. BNL Identified LTS-EMS Integration Opportunities • Environmental Stewardship Policy • Risk-based Budget Prioritization • Organizational Responsibility and Training • Compliance Assurance • Institutional/Project-specific Operational Controls & Maintenance • Monitoring, Surveillance and Reporting • Emergency Preparedness, Response and Contingency Management • Records Management • Performance Reviews, Corrective Action and Improvement • Stakeholder Involvement

  8. Capability Enhancements to Sustain Long-Term Environmental Stewardship

  9. Principles of Long-Term Stewardship • LTS is a Department-wide responsibility • LTS is a component of all aspects of Departmental decision-making • The Department is a trustee of natural and cultural resources • LTS should be incorporated into relevant Departmental policies, practices, and systems • An intergenerational approach is needed for LTS • LTS policy must provide a consistent framework and acknowledge sites’ need for flexibility • Involvement of stakeholders and state, local, and tribal governments is critical to LTS
