 EPA: Federal Register: Environmental Restoration and Waste Management; Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement
The Department attempted to meaningfully analyze the environmental restoration alternatives that it originally defined as part of the ``proposed action.'' After considerable effort, the Department has concluded that it would not be appropriate to make programmatic decisions regarding cleanup strategies that would be applicable to all of the Department's sites.
Although the proposed action was defined in terms of integrating environmental restoration and waste management, the description of the alternatives in the Implementation Plan set forth separate sets of alternatives for environmental restoration and waste management.
In view of this modification the PEIS would be renamed the ``Waste Management Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement.'' The modified proposed action would focus on the evaluation and analysis of waste management issues confronting the Department and would incorporate potential impacts of environmental restoration on the management of wastes.

 Appendix B Environmental Restoration Data
The Environmental Restoration Report provides estimates of waste volumes for the cleanup of PRSs; some estimates for waste volumes to be generated by the decommissioning, including demolition, of structures; and some estimates for waste generation resulting from cleanup of canyon systems.
For example, whereas waste volumes have been estimated for the decontamination of structures at the LAAO tract assuming commercial development subsequent to transfer of the tract, estimates have not been finalized (and are not presented in the Report) of wastes generated from the razing of these structures prior to residential development of the tract.
For example, the Environmental Restoration Report analysis calculated the bounding waste produced from demolition of buildings associated with Records Center operations at the DP Road tract based on possible costs savings that could result from the demolition of the buildings rather than the remodeling necessary for building reuse after decommissioning.
