WIPP Transportation Safety Program Implementation Guide

The Western Governors’ Association established a Technical Advisory Group in 1989 consisting of representatives from western states located along the transportation corridor for shipments of radioactive waste to the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP), a deep geologic disposal site in New Mexico.

The group helps ensure the “safe and uneventful” movement of the waste. This guide was prepared cooperatively by the WIPP Transportation Technical Advisory Group and the U.S. Department of Energy Carlsbad Field Office.
