National Nuclear Security Administration’s (NNSA)
Complex Transformation 2006-2008

The U. S. Department of Energy’s NNSA has completed a Supplemental Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement for the possible transformation of the nation’s nuclear weapons complex.  This is an outgrowth of a DOE Stockpile Stewardship Program in the 1990s that assessed the structure for the complex in terms of the location and functions of nuclear-weapons-related facilities throughout the country.  Three major proposals are being considered by NNSA: (1) consolidating plutonium production, surveillance, and research and development into a consolidated Plutonium Center - 5 alternative sites; (2) consolidating what are referred to as Category I/II special Nuclear Materials (including plutonium, uranium enriched in the isotope 233 or 235) – 2 alternatives; and consolidating, relocating and or eliminating several duplicative or excess facilities located around the country.

Working as a subcontractor to Tetra-Tech, Inc., Barry Lawson Associates served as moderator for the Stockpile Stewardship Program meetings a decade ago and in 2006 moderated several of the seventeen public meetings held around the nation on the current initiative .  The meetings are the first set of meetings anticipated on this project and were focused on the scope or breadth of the PEIS study recommended by members of the public.  The firm also moderated a set of hearings on the Draft SPEIS in February and March of 2008.  For more information on the program, please see: http://www.complextransformationspeis.com/.
