The Waste Management Working Group (WMWG) is chartered to leverage the expertise and experience of contractors to DOE. The purpose of the WMWG is to seek out and promote the best management and operating practices, cost effective technologies and disposal options for all waste streams generated at DOE facilities whether destined for DOE or commercial facilities. The WMWG is focused on complex-wide integration and technology transfer while supporting cost effective and efficient waste options. This will be achieved in a way that enhances complex wide communication and maintains a priority on safety, environmental stewardship, and security. In addition to the overarching main nuclear waste management focus of the WMWG, the WMWG incorporates the efforts of four technical Subgroups:
- High-Level Waste
- National Laboratory
- Packaging & Transportation
- Decontamination & Decommissioning (D&D)
As part of the recent restructuring within EFCOG, the inventory of lessons learned and best practices generated by the Decontamination & Decommissioning (D&D) and Facility Engineering Working Group will be maintained and made available to the users within the DOE complex. Future specific D&D and/or environmental remediation issues related to waste characterization, minimization, disposition, and recycling/reuse will be addressed under ad hoc task groups to be agreed to with DOE on a case by case basis.

EFCOG Sponsoring Directors
Moses Jaraysi is the current CH2M HILL Plateau Remediation Company Vice President for Environmental Program and Strategic Planning. Before joining the CHPRC he was the CH2M HILL Hanford Group Vice President for Environmental Programs overseeing compliant operations of the Tank Farms Complex and the Vadose Zone Remedial Program for the Hanford Tank Farms Closure Project. Mr. Jaraysi has about 30 years of experience in executive and general management tasks (20 of which working on DOE projects). His expertise includes management and technical experience in the fields of regulatory oversight and negotiations; environmental remediation and strategic planning; groundwater and soil remediation program development, Environmental Management System development and implementation, and heavy construction projects.
Mr. Jaraysi has a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from Polytechnic of Central London (University of Westminster, London, UK).
Jeff Stevens is Vice President of Operations for BWX Technologies, Inc., where he oversees operations for the Technical Services Group at 14 U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) sites.
Mr. Stevens has 30 years’ experience in managing government and commercial delivery organizations. He has led complex nuclear programs, including the decommissioning of DOE’s three gaseous diffusion facilities in Oak Ridge, Tenn., which spanned 4.9 million square feet and housed more than 328 million pounds of radioactively-contaminated material; the
Savannah River Site’s Waste Management organization; and the Rocky Flats decommissioning program. Jeff has implemented cultural change, overhead reductions, corporate restructuring/integration and infrastructure development. During his career, Mr. Stevens has led more than 100 decontamination and decommissioning, waste management and remediation projects at more than 60 nuclear/radiological sites, integrated decommissioning programs in 400 facilities, decommissioned more than 150 facilities, remediated 65 sites, and made more than 12,000 waste shipments.
A graduate of the Colorado School of Mines, Mr. Stevens holds a Bachelor of Science in Mining Engineering, with minors in Metallurgical Engineering and Mineral Economics. He served as Lieutenant in the United States Navy, where he was selected for the elite Navy Nuclear Propulsion Program, earning engineering officer certification from the Navy and the Department of Energy.
