To successfully maintain the Department of Energy’s (DOE) environmental management mission on the Oak Ridge Reservation (ORR), a new waste disposal facility is needed. The current disposal facility is nearing capacity but there is significant cleanup remaining. DOE has worked collaboratively with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) to develop plans for a new facility—the Environmental Management Disposal Facility (EMDF). This facility will allow DOE to maintain its cleanup momentum in Oak Ridge, enhancing safety and enabling science and national security missions.
The recording of the public meeting about the proposed landfill held on Tuesday, May 17 is now available.
DOE’s Information Center provides citizens a consolidated facility to obtain information and records related to its projects and programs in Oak Ridge. If you would like paper copies of any of these documents, employees at the facility are available to assist with your requests and searches from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (EST), Monday through Friday. You can also search the complete catalogue online here.
