Abstract

The decontamination and decommissioning (D&D) of retired nuclear reactor plants and the restoration of the landsite to its original state is of primary importance to the nation. As of December 1977, there have been fifty-two reactors constructed at the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory (INEL). Seventeen of these are currently operable; the others are in various stages of retirement ranging from defueled and placed under protective confinement to completely decontaminated and open to the public. Several reactors at the INEL have undergone D&D in the past, but these projects were done individually without an integrated plan. An integrated, site-wide, long-range D&D plan1 has been developed at the INEL, and the Organic Moderated Reactor Experiment (OMRE) facility is the first reactor to be addressed by this plan.
