Background

    EPA's Office of Air and Radiation (OAR) has requested SAB advice 
related to EPA's review of its regulatory standards in 40 CFR Part 
192--Health and Environmental Protection Standards for Uranium and 
Thorium Mill Tailings in regard to underground In-Situ Leach Recovery 
(ISL/ISR) facilities.
    EPA is authorized to develop standards for the protection of public 
health, safety, and the environment from radiological and non-
radiological hazards associated with residual radioactive materials. 
The Agency is currently undertaking a review to determine if the 
existing standards, last revised by EPA in 1995, should be updated. The 
expectation is that ISL/ISR operations will be the most common type of 
new uranium extraction facility in the United States. These facilities 
can affect groundwater. Accordingly, EPA is seeking scientific advice 
and relevant technical criteria to establish standards and procedures, 
including the relevant period of monitoring for ISL/ISR facilities, 
once uranium extraction operations are completed, in order to provide 
reasonable assurances of aquifer stability and groundwater protection.
