With less low-level radioactive waste each year and availability of South Carolina's Barnwell landfill, Pennsylvania environmental officials said Monday the state will consider suspending a search for its own disposal site. Environmental Protection Secretary James M. Seif said options for disposing of the waste were limited in 1980 when the federal government directed Pennsylvania to find a storage site. "That's not the case today, and that's why we need to explore whether it makes sense for Pennsylvania to continue the siting process," Seif said. The Barnwell site, which was supposed to close earlier this decade, was reopened by South Carolina to waste from around the country in 1995.

' That approach, designed to dispel the fear that the state would place the site in a community that did not want it, produced no volunteers. Suspension of the search, which . so far has cost $37 million, would have to be approved by a consensus of the multistate compact, said Christina Novak, a spokeswoman for the Pennsylvania environmental agency. i The, federal law requiring states to find locations for storing low-level radioactive waste sets no time limit on the searches, Ms. Novak said. The Pennsylvania search, therefore, could be placed on hold indefinitely and could resume later if circumstances warranted, she said, v New Jersey suspended its search earlier this year, she said.
