CCNS Public Scoping Comments to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission about Waste Control Specialists, LLC
CCNS submitted its public scoping comments to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) about Waste Control Specialists, LLC (WCS) proposal to construct and operate a Consolidated Interim Storage Facility (CISF) (aka “de facto parking lot dump”) at its Andrews, Texas facility. The scoping comments are the first step in a National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process that NRC is conducting about the proposal. CCNS described what it believes the “scope” of the draft environmental impact statement should include. CCNS urged NRC to deny WCS’s application and remand it back to WCS. We argued that the NEPA process should be “halted until such time as WCS submits an application that addresses the environmental, public health and safety, environmental justice, and short-term and long-term risks as outlined in these comments and those raised in opposition comments submitted by others, including Deborah Reade on March 12, 2017.”
