The links listed below summarize some of SEA’s recent and historical Radioactive Waste projects including LLRW, MLRW, TRU and High-Level wastes:

High-Level Mixed Radioactive Waste

SEA assisted a government contractor in determining the origins, scope and purposes of the treatability testing provisions of RCRA. SEA prepared an Expert Report in this regard for use in an ongoing dispute with a State Agency over the proper interpretation of this provision. SEA determined that the State’s interpretation was inconsistent with the origins purpose and historical implementation of RCRA’s treatability provision.

High-Level Mixed Radioactive Waste - Permitting

SEA was retained by a national environmental group to assess the applicability of RCRA’s substantive and permitting requirements to the ongoing treatment of mixed high-level radioactive wastes at a governmental facility. In particular, SEA assessed the legitimacy of claims by a government contractor of exemptions under RCRA by virtue of the waste water treatment tank and totally enclosed treatment exclusions. This case was resolved to the satisfaction of all parties involved.

Radioactive Waste Remediation

SEA was retained as a Superfund (CERCLA) regulatory and policy expert in a case involving the remediation of a radioactive material processing site in the southern U.S.  Prepared an expert report highlighting the inconsistency in the application of the “useful products” doctrine to governmental defendants as compared to private party defendants in the Case.
