Two site-specific EISs have been prepared to assess potential impacts of building and operating depleted UF6 conversion facilities at the Paducah and Portsmouth sites.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has prepared two site-specific Environmental Impact Statements (EISs) for the construction, operation, and decontamination and decommissioning of depleted uranium hexafluoride (DUF6) conversion facilities at the Paducah, Kentucky, and Portsmouth, Ohio sites.

The Notice of Availability for the two final EISs will be published in the Federal Register by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on June 18, 2004.
