Background and renewal

This is a draft permit renewal for the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility.

The MWSF has been in operation since 1996 and stores containers of radiologically contaminated dangerous waste (mixed waste). The facility is designed for storage of mixed wastes for greater than 90 days.
The MWSF stores containers of waste generated from work on nuclear-powered naval vessels and radiological work performed inside the PSNS & IMF boundary. The facility also stores waste generated by PSNS & IMF personnel at offsite facilities owned by the U.S. Navy.

For more information see the Nuclear Waste Program public comment page.
