Red Team Report is Recipe for Disaster

The NNSA released the secret Red Team report on Thursday, May 1. A quick review of the report shows it contains an ambitious and complicated plan to relocate enriched uranium operations to several existing facilities at the Y12 Nuclear Weapons Complex in Oak Ridge while at the same time building a streamlined Uranium Processing Facility.

The key problem to the plan is simple: it requires the very thing NNSA has proven time and again it is incapable of doing”strong and effective management of a challenging project.

OREPA’s May UPF Update has a first response to the Red Team Report. You can read it by following the link below:

Sunday Vigil at Y-12 in Oak Ridge Tennessee

Sunday Vigil

The OREPA Board has now decided that we are prepared to do a limited re-opening of the Sunday vigil to allow for slightly more participation.  We are asking anyone who wants to attend a Sunday vigil to sign up in advance—by the Thursday before. There are two ways to sign up. You can email Ralph at or you can call him at 865 776 5050. If the five slots are already taken, we’ll ask you to wait until next week. All vigilers are expected to wear masks. Bring your own chair. Avoid physical contact and maintain an appropriate social distance in the circle of chairs. Of course, if for any reason you feel you may have been exposed to the virus or to someone with the virus, you should not attend the vigil. At this point, we are not resuming our monthly potlucks.
