For cleanup work to continue, the Department of Energy (DOE) proposed a new landfill, the Environmental Management Disposal Facility (EMDF) which has been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC). Cleanup of legacy contamination is urgent and necessary. Unfortunately, the selected approach may result yet again in future generations having to deal with today’s problems, as the discharge criteria for EMDF have not been set and may not even be subject to public input.
