- California’s Policy on TRU Waste Shipments: Since 1989, California’s Governor designated the California Energy Commission (Energy Commission) as the lead state agency for planning the proposed DOE shipments of TRU waste in California. The Energy Commission is responsible for coordinating activities of other state agencies that will be involved with the WIPP shipments. These agencies include the California Highway Patrol (CHP), the California Emergency Management Agency (Cal EMA), the California Department of Public Health – Radiologic Health Branch, the California Environmental Protection Agency, the California Department of Fish and Game, the California Department of Transportation, and the California Public Utilities Commission Rail Safety Branch. The Energy Commission and these agencies have prepared several background papers and provide comments on WIPP transportation safety issues and policies.
- Along with ten other western states, California has been actively involved since 1989 in the efforts of the Western Governors’ Association (WGA) and DOE to cooperatively develop a comprehensive safety program for shipments to WIPP. New Mexico and Idaho co-chair the WGA Technical Advisory Group for WIPP Transport. As part of the WGA-DOE safety program, the Energy Commission has coordinated California’s input to federal plans and policies for these shipments. The Energy Commission has prepared background information to inform Californians of DOE’s shipment plans, the WGA WIPP transport accident prevention and emergency preparedness program, and California’s issues and concerns.
