DOE would conduct no maintenance or surveillance on the RWS, with the exception of the L-Lake dam, which would be maintained until the Lake's water level returned to the original Steel Creek stream bed in approximately 10 years.
DOE has concluded the amount and uncertainty in shutdown implementation costs suggest the RWS should continue to be operated while DOE monitors RWS operating and maintenance costs to determine when continued operation becomes too costly.
DOE considers continued operation of the RWS to be environmentally preferable in the short-term because L-Lake remain as a lake with its ecology unaffected.

 DOE - NNSA/NSO -- EM Strontium-90 Sensor Project - Hanford
Strontium-90 contamination of ground water is an important issue for the Department of Energy (DOE), especially at Washington State's Hanford Site where N-Reactor operations have resulted in a plume of 90Sr in the near surface groundwater that is continually released into the Columbia River.
DOE is planning to remediate this plume with the objective of reducing the amount of 90Sr entering the Columbia River.
In order to assess the effectiveness of the remediation effort and to verify the reduction of the 90Sr levels entering the river, it is imperative to compare 90Sr levels before and after remediation begins.

Moreover, we have been informed by the Savannah River Operations Office that the proposal is not set forth or incorporated by reference in the contract between WSRC and the DOE.

 American Whitewater - NWRI - Doe 2. Gorge: Blevins Bridge on Bear Cage Road to Highway 19E bridge (Hampton)
The area around the Snatcher is pretty congested, requiring a tight eddy turn, ferrying back across the river behind huge boulders, a class III rapid with a hard right turn at the bottom, and ends with a five-foot drop into a pool.
From here you can ferry to far river right to line up for a slide, but there is a bad piton rock at the bottom of the drop.
To avoid the hole, enter the rapid tight against the river left wall, and work towards the middle of the rapid, taking care not to fall off into the far river-left seam.

 Mark H. McCormack v. Westinghouse Savannah River Company
That is the only alleged discriminatory action for which he seeks relief in his complaint, and Part 708 does not apply to such an alleged action by a contractor that has never employed the complainant.
The DOE believes that contractors should have the managerial discretion to deal with employee disciplinary matters as they deem appropriate, and that contractors with effective employee protection programs should have the opportunity to address and resolve complaints of reprisal internally.
The DOE recognizes, however, that in certain instances company procedures are not a substitute for Federal administrative procedures.

 NETL: News Release - DOE Study Raises Estimates of Coalbed Methane Potential in Powder River Basin
The study, Powder River Basin Coalbed Methane Development and Produced Water Management Study, was prepared by Advanced Resources International of Arlington, VA. The Energy Department's Office of Fossil Energy commissioned the study through its National Energy Technology Laboratory to help federal and state agencies plan for future development of this significant natural gas resource.
The study found that discharging water produced during coalbed methane operations into rivers and streams – a practice currently allowed by state permits since the quality of the water is generally as good as normal drinking water – is the lowest cost option and results in the largest estimates of economically recoverable gas.
The new DOE study also concludes that future coalbed methane operations will require fewer wells than previously estimated by other studies and that the amount of water associated with coalbed methane production in the Powder River Basin may be substantially less than the studies estimated.

Abraham said reported incidents of guards sleeping on duty, employees repeatedly losing keys, and other indicators of poor performance at DOE facilities, although rare, were unacceptable and will not be tolerated.
He proposed the new initiatives as well as a new culture where lab staff are free to air their concerns about security to managers without fear of retribution, rather than seek out the news media or the inspector general’s office.
DOE also is investigating the possibility of federalizing its security forces and creating a single, highly specialized elite federal force within the department, rather than relying mostly on contract security forces, as is the case today.

Preview: Scenery on the Doe from Roan Mountain to Hampton is extremely spectacular with the steep rock and evergreen fa├žade of Fork Mountain on the west and Cedar Mountain on the east scrambling skyward almost 1,100 feet from the water's edge.
