National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) activities:
On May 1, 2013, the NNSA issued a finding that the transfer of the Kansas City Plant at the Bannister Federal Complex to a new owner would have no significant impact on the environment. The environmental assessment analyzed a representative and realistic range of potential future uses of the land and facilities at the Bannister Road location. Because the actual future uses are not currently known, this analytical scenerio served as a basis for estimating the potential environmental impacts of the proposed action. Potential future uses would be contingent upon receipt of necessary permits, authorizations, and additional environmental reviews.
