This volume discusses the readiness of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) facility near Carlsbad, New Mexico, to serve as a geological repository for transuranic radioactive waste. WIPP is located in a Permian-age bedded salt deposit meters below the surface.

The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant, known locally as WIPP (pronounced "whip"), opened in after decades of back and forth between state and federal regulators. Today, it holds more t cubic meters of radioactive waste arriving from as far away as South Carolina.

Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) WIPP is the nation’s only repository for the disposal of nuclear waste known as transuranic, or TRU, waste. It consists of clothing, tools, rags, residues, debris, soil and other items contaminated with small amounts of plutonium and Waste isolation pilot plant book man-made radioactive elements.
