Abstract

The Nevada Risk Assessment/Management Program (NRAMP) was part of a national effort by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to develop new sources of information and approaches to risk assessment, risk management, risk communication and public outreach as these objectives relate to the ecological and human health effects of radioactive and hazardous material management and site remediation activities. This final report presents a synopsis of the NRAMP effort that occurred from 1995 to 2000. Included in this report is a brief history of NRAMP including a description of the DOE Notice of Program Interest (NOPI) goals and how the NRAMP objectives tied in with the NOPI goals, a brief description of risk assessment activities related to the Nevada Test Site (NTS), and recommendations for future work.
