On June 27, 1989, Secretary of Energy Watkins announced a 10-point Initiative to strengthen environmental protection and waste management activities in the Department of Energy (DOE). One of the initiatives involves conducting Environmentai Assessments at DOE's operating facilities. The purpose of the Environmental Audit of selected Fossil Energy Sites in Wyoming is to provide the Secretary with information on the current environmental regulatory compliance status and associated vulnerabilities of the facilities, root causes for noncompliance, adequacy of environmental management programs. and response actions to address the identified problem areas. The scope of the Environmental Audit of Selected Fossil Energy Sites in Wyoming is comprehensive, covering all environmental media and Federal, State, and local regulations, requirements, and Best Management Practices (BMP). The environmental disciplines to be addressed in this Audit include air, soil, surface water, groundwater, waste management, toxic and chemical materials,radiation, quality assurance, inactive waste sites, and environmental management. Preliminary review of the Fossil Energy Sites in Wyoming reveals that some of these environmental disciplines will have limited applicability due to the inactive status of most of the Wyoming Sites. The Audit also addresses the performance of environmental management functions and oversight by the Laramie Project Office (LPO) , the Morgantown Energy Technology Center (METe), and the Headquarters Fossil Energy (FE) offices. At several of the Audit sites, activities unrelated to the DOE may currently be occurring. These are not included within the scope of the Audit. Only those activities/facilities within the authority of the Department (past or present) will be investigated.
