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.
