Abstract: This paper describes the results of analyses conducted to evaluate impacts on monitored retrievable storage (MRS) operations and design resulting from possible changes in the CRWMS Reference System Design which involve the CRWMS functions of waste acceptance, transportation, and disposal. Changes in waste acceptance which impact MRS operations and design include potential requirements to accept fuel according to pickup policies other than oldest fuel first. Transportation system impacts on MRS operations and design include potential requirements to de-rate casks to accommodate transportation of hot fuel. Disposal system impacts center around impacts on the MRS from various thermal loading strategies at the repositor. The analyses that were conducted to address these issues utilized methodologies, tools, and in some cases, results of other ongoing Systems Analysis studies. In particular, these included the Throughput Rate Study and the System Implications of Repository Thermal Loading Study.
