Abstract : In this report, the results of a hazards analysis of the Western Area Demilitarization Facility (WADF) at Hawthorne, Nevada are summarized. The details of the analyses are provided in three reports (references 1, 2 and 3) and are not repeated in this document. Each of the detailed reports consists of two volumes. Volume 1 is a summary of the analysis results with appendices covering special problem areas. Volume 2 contains fault tree diagrams for each of the plant areas that were evaluated. This final report contains an overview of the WADF systems (Section 2), the hazards analysis methodology that was applied (Section 3), a discussion of the quantitative fault tree results in terms of the 95 percent confidence level (Section 4), and a compilation of the conclusions and recommendations for each area of the facility (Section 5). The recommendations have been prioritized in section 6 (refer to Table 2 on pages 50-54). Recommendations with rankings of 6 to 10 are considered to be crucial and should be implemented, or at a minimum critically evaluated.
