Transuranic Waste Storage

Photo Date: January 1989
Photo Number: 170 016 002

Transuranic waste has been stored in containers on concrete pads since 1974. There are 19 storage pads occupying 114,000 square feet. The containers on some pads are covered with soil, while others have weather proof enclosures. The transuranic waste will eventually be retrieved and characterized to determine if it can be disposed directly or if treatment is necessary prior to disposal.
