Most US uranium-producing states are 'agreement states' vis a vis the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and have authority to issue permits and regulate uranium mining and milling. The NRC's role is then minimal. In February Wyoming, the major uranium production state, passed legislation to make it an agreement state, along with all the other uranium-producing states.

A nuclear flask is a shipping container that is used to transport active nuclear materials between nuclear power station and spent fuel reprocessing facilities.. Each shipping container is designed to maintain its integrity under normal transportation conditions and during hypothetical accident conditions.

In the near future, because of a potential high-level waste repository being built, the number of these shipments by Southeastern Utah nuclear waste transportation study book and rail is expected to increase.

More t drums of nuclear waste that have been buried in Utah are likely to include some material that is so radioactive state law forbids its burial.

Wayne County is an irregular east–west rectangle at the southern extent of the Colorado Plateau of southeastern Utah (Figure 1).

Nuclear Waste Program Sincethe U.S. Nuclear Waste Program Has Underestimated Its Transportation Component. The Blue Ribbon Commission recommended prompt efforts to develop “one or more” consolidated (off-site) storage facilities, and “one or more” geologic disposal facilities.

Utah’s Coordinated Human-Service Public Transportation Plan Page 4 This plan has been prepared by the staff of Southeastern Utah Association of Local Governments. Content information received through various surveys, dialog, and involved input from agency sources. A great appreciation goes to out to all participants.

Contact: Michael Bryant. Utah’s contribution to the nuclear waste problem Utah participated in the United States’ nuclear build-up starting in through the 70’s. Uranium was mined in southeastern Utah, with radioactive tailings piled nearby. Mills crushed, ground and chemically processed. The State of Utah, local ranchers, and certain members of the Goshute Indian Tribe oppose the introduction of a storage facility tot he reservation.

Utah Governor Mike Leavitt contends that the state is already overburdened with nuclear waste, and the transportation of waste to the reservation would pose a threat to citizens.

One area of concern in nuclear waste transportation is the exposure of waste handlers, drivers, and the general public to radiation even during routine (non-accident) conditions. Even though shipping containers are shielded and designed to reduce exposures to radiation being emitted by the spent fuel or high-level waste, federal regulations.

The purpose is to consolidate the current design standards and practices into a single reference point to help foster accurate, efficient, and consistent signal designs.A uranium isotope is a uranium isotope, regardless of its country of origin.

But for two Democratic congressmen, there’s a problem with low-level nuclear waste from Italy being dumped in Utah, even though plenty of radioactive refuse has already been deposited there from U.S.
