Dear Mr. Garner:

In September of 2007, EnergySolutions filed an application with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to import 20,000 tons of radioactive waste from nuclear reactors being decommissioned in Italy. According to that application, the waste would be processed in Tennessee with the resulting product to be disposed of in EnergySolutions’ Clive, Utah, Class A disposal site.
