July UPF UPDate makes case for Environmental Impact Statement

With the National Nuclear Security Administration  dumping the old “Big Box” UPF, the Red Team proposal”a smaller UPF, some operations moved into older, deteriorating facilities indefinitely, and construction of some smaller, less-secure facilities”is a significant change from the old plan. So it obligates NNSA to prepare  a new Environmental Impact Statement. OREPA’s July UPF UPDate looks at the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act which says NNSA must start the EIS early in the process.

Sunday Vigil at Y-12 in Oak Ridge Tennessee

Sunday Vigil

OREPA has held Sunday vigils every week for more than 22 years at the main entrance to the Y-12 Nuclear Weapons Complex (intersection of Scarboro Rd and East Bear Creek Road). We will now be holding the vigil at 4:00PM ET during the winter months so we don’t have to be sitting out in the dark. We are outdoors and space our chairs; when covid numbers are up, we encourage people to wear masks. Bring your own chair, we have some umbrellas for sun shade or rain.
