This is the web site of the world's first underground repository licensed to safely and permanently dispose of transuranic radioactive waste left from the research and production of nuclear weapons. In addition to providing access to documents and background information, this home page also offers an excellent listing of useful links to other resources of interest. The Science@WIPP link, in particular, accesses a great deal of scientific and research information related to the repository.
