July UPF UPDate makes case for Environmental Impact Statement

With the National Nuclear Security Administration  dumping the old “Big Box” UPF, the Red Team proposal”a smaller UPF, some operations moved into older, deteriorating facilities indefinitely, and construction of some smaller, less-secure facilities”is a significant change from the old plan. So it obligates NNSA to prepare  a new Environmental Impact Statement. OREPA’s July UPF UPDate looks at the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act which says NNSA must start the EIS early in the process.

Sunday Vigil at Y-12 in Oak Ridge Tennessee

Sunday Vigil

The OREPA Board has now decided that we are prepared to do a limited re-opening of the Sunday vigil to allow for slightly more participation.  We are asking anyone who wants to attend a Sunday vigil to sign up in advance—by the Thursday before. There are two ways to sign up. You can email Ralph at orep@earthlink.net or you can call him at 865 776 5050. If the five slots are already taken, we’ll ask you to wait until next week. All vigilers are expected to wear masks. Bring your own chair. Avoid physical contact and maintain an appropriate social distance in the circle of chairs. Of course, if for any reason you feel you may have been exposed to the virus or to someone with the virus, you should not attend the vigil. At this point, we are not resuming our monthly potlucks.
