Lake Barrett is an independent consultant in the energy field. He has worked in the nuclear energy and nuclear materials management areas for over 4 decades, most recently as the head of the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Civilian Nuclear Waste Management, which is responsible for implementing the United Sates' programs for spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste, as mandated by the Nuclear Waste Policy Act. In that capacity, he led the complex scientific Yucca Mountain Geologic Repository program through the statutory site selection process, culminating with the Presidential site designation and subsequent successful House and Senate votes.
Lake also served at U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, where he was directly involved with the early response to the Three Mile Island reactor accident and became the Site Director, responsible for regulatory programs during the stabilization, recovery, and cleanup of the damaged reactor. He also has extensive managerial and engineering experience in DOE's Defense Programs and private industry at both Bechtel Power Corporation, with commercial nuclear power plants, and Electric Boat Division of General Dynamics, with nuclear reactor and submarine systems design, operation, and decommissioning. He is a long time member of the American Nuclear Society and the Institute of Nuclear Materials Management.
