Yucca Mountain Hearing Documents Available on US NRC On-Line Database

The US Nuclear Regulatory Commission has made nearly 3.7 million documents from the adjudicatory hearing on the proposed nuclear waste repository at Nevada’s Yucca Mountain publicly available in the agency’s online documents database. The documents were formerly part of the Licensing Support Network created to allow various parties and the public access to documents needed for the hearing on the Department of Energy’s request for a construction authorization for the repository. The LSN was shut down when the hearing was suspended in September 2011 after Congress reduced funding.
