This website provides access to the Safety Analysis Report (SAR) portion of the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Yucca Mountain Repository License Application, submitted to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) in June of 2008. The report is divided into five chapters, which are subdivided into numerous sections. A straightforward table of contents lists hyperlinks to individual sections of the report, which are in PDF format. The SAR contains a wealth of information on the specifics of the Yucca Mountain Repository, though the individual PDF files are somewhat difficult to navigate. The chapters treat the following subjects (in order): repository safety before permanent closure; repository safety after permanent closure; DOE’s research and development programs to resolve outstanding questions; DOE's performance confirmation programs; management systems involved with the Yucca Mountain project.
