Dear Mr. Chairman:
This letter transmits the revised Department of Energy's Implementation Plan (IP) for stabilization of the nuclear materials identified in Recommendation 2000-1. The revision is specific to the Hanford Section of the IP.
The update to the IP reflects new information on the techniques necessary to safely handle the sludge in the K Basins at Hanford and appropriate contingency for the risks to the project.
If you have any further questions, please contact me or Mr. James A. Rispoli, Assistant secretary for Environmental Management, at (202) 586-7709.
