Other Radiological and Nuclear Waste Shipments
Communication, collaboration, coordination and consultation are the keys to effective transportation planning for all radiological and nuclear waste transportation campaigns at a local, state, regional and national level. Regional planning for the shipment of nuclear waste began in the western United States and has spread across the nation.
Colorado works closely with the following agencies on developing the transportation plans and public information outreach for a number of radiological and nuclear waste campaigns in addition to those destined to the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant.:
- Department of Energy (USDOE) Environmental Management
- Los Alamos National Laboratory
- USDOE National Nuclear Security Administration
- Nuclear Regulatory Commission, University shipments of spent nuclear fuel
