Abstract : This section provides the detailed results of our analysis of whether a given stream of annual deposits made into a uranium enrichment cleanup fund would be sufficient to pay for expected future cleanup expenses. For the purposes of this analysis, total cleanup costs are divided into three types: (1) decontamination and decommissioning (D and D), (2) remedial action, and (3) depleted uranium costs. Cleanup cost estimates and the timing of those expenses were taken from several sources, with all sources presenting their estimates in 1992 dollars. D and D costs for removing radioactive and hazardous materials and decontaminating the facility buildings were taken from a September 1991 report entitled Preliminary Cost Estimate Decontamination and Decommissioning of the Gaseous Diffusion Plants, prepared for DOE by Ebasco Services.
