Users will find current news clippings, documents, photos, maps, and much more information on the history and current developments of the Yucca Mountain Repository Project in Nevada.
Includes the text of numerous documents and reports on the subject of nuclear waste and Yucca Mountain, as well as links to federal, state, local and regional government sites, non-governmental organizations, legal resources, and technical resources.
Berkeley Lab is responsible for hydrological (seepage and transport) and thermal-hydrological-chemical coupled-process testing and modeling at Yucca Mountain 's Exploratory Studies Facility. This site provides information on ambient testing, heater testing, laboratory testing, and quality assurance.
The Commission's final report was submitted on January 26, 2012 and the Commission's work completed, so its site has been archived in Cybercemetery.
