Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Stakeholder Workshop on Long-Term Stewardship
To: Interested parties

I am writing to invite you to a Stakeholder Workshop to discuss the Draft
Long-Term Stewardship Study, recently released by the Department of Energy.

The Workshop will take place on:

Thursday, December 14, 2000
6:00-8:00 P.M. local time
Argent Hotel, 50 Third Street, San Francisco, CA

We have scheduled this Stakeholder Workshop to coincide with the December 13-15 Workshop on Land Transfer and Long Term Management of Contaminated Federal Facilities. The purpose of this Stakeholder Workshop is to exchange information and have some constructive discussions between the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and interested parties on the Draft Long-Term Stewardship Study.

DOE invites the general public, other Federal agencies, Native American
Tribes, state and local governments, and all other interested parties to
comment on the Draft Study. All comments will be captured and considered,
whether they are provided at the Stakeholder Workshop or through other means (see below).

The Draft Study has been prepared in accordance with the terms of a 1998
Settlement Agreement that resolved a lawsuit brought against DOE by the
Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and 38 other plaintiffs. It
incorporates input received during a public scoping process. The goal of
the Draft Study is to inform decision-makers and the public about the
long-term stewardship issues and challenges facing DOE and potential options for addressing such issues. The Draft Study primarily addresses
institutional and programmatic issues, not site-specific long-term
stewardship requirements, which are the subject of a separate Report to
Congress now being prepared.

Copies of the Draft Study can be requested by telephone at 1-800-736-3282.
The Draft Study and its supporting technical documents also are available
for review at www.em.doe.gov/lts.

Comments can also be submitted during the public comment period (which
extends through December 15, 2000) to Steven Livingstone, Project Manager,
Office of Long Term Stewardship, (EM-51), Office of Environmental
Management, U.S. Department of Energy, P.O. Box 45079, Washington, D.C. 20026-5079, phone: 202-586-9280. Comments may also be submitted
electronically to Steven.Livingstone@em.doe.gov or by fax to 202-863-7036.
In addition, the Department will conduct a formal public hearing on the
Draft Study. This hearing will take place Thursday, November 30, 2000, from
9:00AM - 1:00PM at the U.S. Department of Energy, Forrestal Building, Room 1E245, 1000 Independence Avenue, Washington, DC.

If you desire further information, please feel free to contact me at
202-586-9280 or Steven Livingstone at 202-586-9874. I look forward to a
productive workshop.
