COMPLIANCE WITH SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT OF APRIL 15, 1997, IN NEVADA V. PENA CIVIL ACTION NO. CV-94-00576-RMP-(RLH)
Our Chief Counsel has informed me that the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Office of General Counsel has initiated consultation with the U.S. Department of Interior (DOI),concerning the status of the existing land withdrawals for the Nevada Test Site. This action, along with the production and transmission for internal review of DOE'S Draft Final Area 3 Performance Assessment before November 30, 1997, satisfies the two conditions set forth in Section II.A.1 of the Settlement Agreement. We expect that several meetings with DOI officials will take place before consultation is completed and we can inform you of the results of that process.
Carl P. Gertz, Acting Assistant Manager
