Abstract: The location for the new Coeur d’Alene Basin Repository was selected based on a two-phased siting process. The first phase was to develop an inventory of potential candidate sites through research at the County assessor’s office and communication with realtors; local, state, and federal agencies; and the Coeur d’Alene Indian Tribe. A total of 94 candidate sites were carried forward to the second phase, which involved an initial screening exercise to winnow the 94 sites to a workable number for further assessment. During this phase, citizens’ input was incorporated into the repository siting process. To achieve this goal, two workshops were held to identify the important siting factors from the public’s perspective. The public input was distilled into a list of nine screening criteria. Performance scores/values from stakeholders were developed for every candidate site for each of the criteria. Based on citizen criteria ranking, the Osburn Tailings Impoundment was recommended for further evaluation. [All papers were considered for technical and language appropriateness by the organizing committee.]
