[DOE LETTER HEAD]
December 10, 2007
The Honorable A.J. Eggenberger
Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board
Dear Mr. Chairman:
The purpose of this memorandum is to transmit the Office of Environmental
Managementís (EM) Low Priority Facility Review Reports identified in Enclosure 1 as
the next incremental deliverable to satisfy Commitment 8.6.3 of the Department of
Energy implementation Plan for Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board
Recommendation 2004-2, Active Confinement Systems, July 2006. High priority and
medium priority review reports were transmitted to the Board on June 8 and September
10, 2007, respectively.
As over a year has passed since our July 14, 2006, transmittal of the original EM priority
listing, project changes have affected that list. A revised listing is included as Enclosure
2 which provides the current status of all low priority facilities on the original listing.
Enclosures 3 through 9 are the review report for the current EM low priority facilities.
Program Secretarial Officer concurrence and approval of any identified gaps and
upgrades, if necessary, will be in accordance with Deliverable 8.6.5.
If you have any comments or feedback, please call me at (202) 586-0738 or
Mr. Dae Y. Chung, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Safety Management and Operations,
at (202) 586-5151.
