Waste Isolation Pilot Plant

The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) program's goal is the safe and uneventful shipment of transuranic waste to the WIPP while being prepared to respond should an incident occur involving a shipment. Intergovernmental contracts with two state agencies fund the training of first responders along the WIPP route in Texas; assistance to local governments with their emergency plans; and the tracking of intrastate WIPP shipments.
