DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY
Finding of No Significant Impact: Disposition of DOE Excess
Depleted Uranium, Natural Uranium, and Low-Enriched Uranium
AGENCY: Department of Energy.
ACTION: Finding of No Significant Impact.
SUMMARY: The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE, the Department) has
completed an Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Disposition of DOE
Excess Depleted Uranium (DU), Natural Uranium (NU), and Low-Enriched
Uranium (LEU) (DOE/EA-1607). Based on the analysis in the EA, the
Department has determined that the proposed action, DOE dispositioning
its excess uranium inventory using one or a combination of two
methods--(1) enrichment to either NU or LEU product and subsequent
storage or sale of the resultant NU or LEU product (Enrichment
Alternative), and (2) direct sale to appropriately licensed entities
(Direct Sale Alternative)--does not constitute a major Federal action
significantly affecting the quality of the human environment within the
context of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA).
Therefore, the preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS)
is not required and the Department is issuing this Finding of No
Significant Impact (FONSI).
