Brookhaven National Laboratory 2010 Five-Year Review

The U.S. Department of Energy has completed a Five-Year Review for the Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) site, as required by the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA). This review serves to ensure that the implementation and performance of the selected cleanup remedies continue to be effective in protecting human health and the environment. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency concurs with the protectiveness determinations as reported within this Five-Year Review. This is the second site-wide Five-Year Review of all the remediation work performed at the BNL site. This includes remediation of groundwater contamination on and off of BNL property, excavation and disposal of contaminated soils and river sediments, removal of above- and below-ground storage tanks, capping of landfills, decommissioning activities and long-term surveillance and maintenance at the former Brookhaven Graphite Research Reactor (BGRR) and High Flux Beam Reactor (HFBR).  Land-use restrictions and institutional controls are in place to ensure that any residual contamination left in place is not dispersed and does not adversely affect human health or the environment.

These files are presented below in two ways: one large file containing all information, or a series of smaller files.
