In 1998, the U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) plans to begin a $19 billion program to dispose of 176,000 c.m. of transuranic waste that will be permanently stored in the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP), a repository near Carlsbad, NM. However, DoE must first obtain from EPA a certificate of compliance with its disposal regulations for radioactive waste and meet the requirements of RCRA for handling and disposing of hazardous waste. This report assesses the prospects for opening WIPP and determines how well DoE is positioned to begin filling it in the first few years of operation and longer.

High-level nuclear waste -- one of the nation's most hazardous substances -- is accumulating at 80 sites in 35 states. The waste is supposed to be disposed of in a geologic repository at Yucca Mountain, about 100 miles northwest of Las Vegas, NV. However, the repository is more than a decade behind schedule, and the nuclear waste generally remains at the commercial nuclear reactor sites and DoE sites where it was generated. This report examines the key attributes, challenges, and costs of the Yucca Mountain repository and the two principal alternatives to a repository that nuclear waste manage
