Nuclear power developers face a rapidly changing regulatory landscape. With events that took place in Japan in March 2011, nuclear plant permitting processes and plant emergency plans will be subject to intense scrutiny by industry, government and the public.
E & E has performed environmental assessments for the nuclear cycle from mining through fuel processing through power operations and waste disposal. We have extensive experience with design and management of public outreach and public awareness programs and have pioneered many of the techniques and methods used by government and industry today. Our public participation experts have addressed every conceivable public awareness scenario ranging from a potential nuclear incident to the permitting of a new power plant.
E & E has staff experienced and trained in emergency preparedness and management, hazard mitigation procedures, business continuity, urban and land use planning, and public outreach and education. We can help clients anticipate new vulnerabilities and develop emergency and contingency plans that cover the range of maximum credible accidents at their facilities.
