The project today asked the US Dept of Energy to end the role of Normandeau Associates as the DOE’s Environmental Impact Statement contractor and to terminate the Memorandum of Understanding that outlined that role.

In it’s letter to the DOE, the project acknowledged some public expressions of concern regarding the use of Normandeau in developing a single body of environmental data for both the federal EIS process and the state permitting process.  The project had responded to those concerns in a February 16th letter to the DOE, and said today that “…(w)hile we do not believe that the concerns … are well-founded, we … have concluded that it is desirable to terminate … so that the EIS can be prepared free of the public concerns that have been voiced…”

The project also requested DOE’s assistance in promptly identifying and transitioning to a new EIS contractor.
