Institutionally Controlled CERCLA Sites
In operation since 1949, the Idaho National Laboratory is a multi-program national laboratory that supports key U.S. Department of Energy (DOE-HQ) missions. The INL specializes in nuclear and energy research, science, conservation, and national defense, working toward fulfilling the Nation's future energy and national security requirements. U.S. Department of Energy, Idaho Operations Office (DOE-ID) oversees operations and research activities conducted at the INL.
In 1989, the INL Site was added to the National Priorities List under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) to address legacy waste from historical research operations. Consequently, another mission of the INL—Idaho Cleanup Project— is to reduce threats posed by historical contamination to protect human health and the environment.
This site provides a report on the INL institutionally controlled sites that do not qualify for unlimited use or unrestricted exposure.
