Eureka County's nuclear waste program is looking back to reflect on what has occurred in the decades-long federal nuclear waste repository program. The County's effort is two-fold. With the assistance of its technical team, the County prepared a Lessons Learned Report [600 KB PDF] which was submitted to the President's Blue Ribbon Commission on America's Nuclear Future; the report was submitted in March 2011.
The County is also undertaking a Lessons Learned Video Project, to capture on film and transcript the recollections and insights of key participants and observers. Nuggets of the interviews are presented here along with the full transcript of each interview. The complete videos and transcripts will also be made available to researchers for historical and archival purposes.
