Conceptual Design of a Monitored Retrievable Storage Facility
In order to achieve timely acceptance of spent nuclear fuel into the federal radioactive waste management system and to limit the amount of additional at-reactor storage capacity that...

System Impacts on MRS Operations
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...

Helping a Community Control its Future: Potential Negotiating Packages and Benefits for an MRS Host
The voluntary siting process for the Monitored Retrievable Storage (MRS) facility set forth in the Nuclear Waste Policy Amendments Act (NWPAA) of 1987 provides a potential host community...

Mangling the Models: Real-Life Experiences in Voluntary Siting
Social scientists are accumulating a growing body of research to guide the development of communications models for siting controversial facilities. The models developed by our social...

Feasibility Assessment Grants in Support of Volunteer Siting of a Monitored Retrievable Storage Facility
The Monitored Retrievable Storage facility (MRS) is an integral component of the planned Federal radioactive waste management system. The MRS will temporarily store spent fuel from commercial...

Safeguards and Security Issues at the MRS Facility
The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Management (OCRWM) is responsible for disposing of the nation's high level radioactive waste in a way that ensures...

Fear of Permanence: The Challenge of Siting Interim Facilities
This paper examines an increasingly urgent and surprisingly difficult task: siting potentially hazardous facilities that are intended to operate for a limited period, such as a Monitored...
