The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant, or WIPP, is the world's third deep geological repository (after Germany's Repository for radioactive waste Morsleben and the Schacht Asse II Salt Mine) licensed to store transuranic radioactive waste years. The waste is from the research and production of United States nuclear weapons.

The project is estimated to cost $19 billion Coordinates: 32°22′18″N °47′37″W /. Continuing RESPEC’s decades of experience at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) through support for Sandia National Laboratories Carlsbad Program Group (SNL/CB), this project includes on-call, as-needed support for up to five individuals (a combination of scientists, engineers, and technicians) for field testing and programmatic support at Sandia’s facilities in.
