The Consortium for Risk Evaluation with Stakeholder Participation (CRESP) has completed the Interim Progress Report for the Hanford Site-wide Risk Review Project. All those interested in the Hanford cleanup are invited and encouraged to submit written comments.

The interim progress report provides the results of the first set of 25 evaluations completed for risks and impacts to human health and resources at Hanford Site. A total of approximately 60 evaluations are to be completed for the Project. The interim progress report also contains observations that have emerged from Project work completed to date.

FINAL Methodology for the Hanford Site-wide Risk Review Project

In order to help ensure potential risks and impacts are consistently evaluated, CRESP is using a scientifically sound methodology to conduct the Risk Review Project. A draft of the methodology was tested using pilot cases and made available to the public and independent experts for comment (September 4 2014, Revision A). The DOE, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and State of Washington Departments of Ecology and Health also provided input. More than 300 comments were received, reviewed and carefully considered. The draft was revised based on comments and input received, lessons learned from the pilot case studies conducted to test the draft methodology, and other information reviewed. The final methodology (August 31 2015 Revision 0) was submitted to the DOE, EPA, and State of Washington on August 31, 2015 and is considered a public document.
