Risk Review of Department of Energy Environmental Cleanup for U.S. Congress

Congressional budget authorization language in 2014 directed the DOE to “retain a respected outside group … [to] undertake an analysis of how effectively the Department of Energy (DOE) identifies, programs, and executes its plans to address those risks [to public health and safety from the DOE’s remaining environmental cleanup liabilities], as well as how effectively the Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board (DNFSB) identifies and elevates the nature and consequences of potential threats to public health at safety at the defense environmental cleanup sites.” EAC Director Michael Greenberg led this effort. A report was submitted to Congress in 2017, and a scholarly article is currently in peer review.
