Abstract : On July 15, 1991, you requested that we review the Department of Energy's (DOE) efforts to resume plutonium operations at the Rocky Flats Plant in Golden, Colorado. You specifically asked us to examine DOE's efforts to resolve the environment, safety, and health (ES&H) issues identified before and after plutonium operations were suspended at Rocky Flats in November 1989. As agreed with your offices, this fact sheet provides information on (1) the process that is used at Rocky Flats to identify and manage ES&H issues, (2) the overall status of the ES&H issues at Rocky Flats, and (3) the status of ES&H issues at the buildings where DOE plans to resume plutonium operations.
