COMMENTS due: Consent-Based Siting Process to Identify Federal CIS

March 4

The Office of Nuclear Energy (NE), U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), requests
information on how to site Federal facilities for the temporary, consolidated storage of spent
nuclear fuel using a consent-based approach. DOE anticipates that communities; governments
at the local, State, and Tribal levels; members of the public; energy and environmental justice
groups; organizations or corporations; and other stakeholders may be interested in responding
to this Request for Information (RFI). We especially welcome insight from people, communities,
and groups that have historically not been well-represented in these discussions. Responses to
the RFI will inform development of a consent-based siting process, overall strategy for an
integrated waste management system, and possibly a funding opportunity.
