Pre-Meeting Comments and Questions
On September 5, Brian Costner, leader of the Energy Research Foundation
environmental activist group, called the WSRC-SW&ER Public Involvement Manager to
request a chart describing the technical changes as a result of the N&S Process (Ref.
A7). Mr. Costner also questioned whether a public meeting was really needed for this
issue. After reviewing the chart, Brian Costner offered that this proposed design and
construction standards appeared to be a reasonable way to plan and complete
remediation work. His support was limited on the health and safety requirements under
OSHA though. He expressed some doubt as to the thoroughness and the level of
protection offered/provided to SRS waste site workers, as SRS is currently
implementing/satisfying OSHA requirements. He is not convinced that our current
methods of giving waste site workers a site-specific document, such as a HASP, to read
and a 15 minute site-specific briefing is adequate to ensure the health and safety of
workers is protected. He acknowledged these workers receive general OSHA training,
but questioned whether the site-specific training, outlining the risks at each site was
adequate to ensure worker protection. WSRC acknowledged his concern. Satisfied that
his input was being considered, Mr. Costner stated that he would not need to attend the
public meeting.

Post-Meeting Question and Comment
Jeff Crane, EPA, called the WSRC-SW&ER Public Involvement Manager to ask general
questions about whether compliance with environmental regulations/laws would be an
objective of this proposed process. The Public Involvement Manager assured him that
legal requirements would be met. He said EPA supports a process that streamlines the
current remedial process while ensuring compliance with all environmental laws and
regulations.
