Idaho National Laboratory (INL) Routine Maintenance Activities (Overarching)
CX(s) Applied: B1.3
Office(s): Nuclear Energy, Idaho Operations Office
The purpose of this overarching Environmental Checklist (EC) is to address activities that would meet the intent of the categorical exclusion (CX) B1.3 as described in 10 CFR 1021, Appendix B to Subpart D. These activities would consist of typical and non-typical types of actions, such as routine maintenance, minor modifications, and custodial service activities required to support safe and efficient plant operation, even if performed on an infrequent basis, and would occur on the INL Site and at those in town (Idaho Falls) facilities. These activities would be performed by Idaho National Laboratory (INL) Facility and Site Services personnel or off-site contractors. None of these activities would be performed as part of or in support of a larger project requiring an environmental assessment (EA) or an environmental impact statement (EIS). Activities not covered by this EC include: a) actions which will change the scope or mission of a facility, and b) actions which could cause a significant increase in environmental impact. This document would not support the expansion of a laboratory facility for operational purposes.
