The national high level nuclear waste management program has reached a crisis. The Department of Energy is ready to proceed with underground testing, but they are prevented from doing so. Meanwhile, the ratepayers' money continues to be spent. Some of the road blocks facing the program seem insurmountable. It is time to evaluate the current program and determine whether it is workable. If the program is not workable, an alternative approach must be taken. This paper identifies the problems currently facing the high level waste management program and provides options for restructuring the program.
