Department of. This program facilitated the cleanup of 15 million cubic yards of uranium tailings at former uranium mill sites in nine western Colorado communities. Because much of the cleanup is complete, the focus has shifted to primarily "Post-UMTRA issues," or the discovery of new uranium mill tailings material by private citizens, utility companies or local governments.

A radioactive waste disposal site for material from a former uranium mill, removed as part of the federal Uranium Mill Tailings Remedial Action Project. The Climax Mill, located on the Colorado River in the middle of Grand Junction, operated from totons of million tons of tailings left at the site have been used as.

This annual report documents the Uranium Mill Tailings Remedial Action (UMTRA) Project environmental monitoring and protection program. The UMTRA Project routinely monitors radiation, radioactive residual materials, and hazardous constituents at associated former uranium tailings processing sites and.

The effect of this action was to remove the uranium mill tailings from any control at all. With the support of the U.S. Public Health Service, the State of Colorado formally protested, but it did.

the state from activities associated with the Uranium Mill Tailings Remedial Action (UMTRA) Project during Colorado state fiscal year (FYI (1 July through 30 June ). To capture employment information, a questionnaire was distributed to subcontractor employees at the active UMTRA Project sites of Grand Junction, Gunnison.

The Uranium Mill Tailings Remedial Action (UMTRA) Project was created by the United States Department of Energy (DOE) to monitor the cleanup of uranium mill tailings.

In the US Congress passed the Uranium Mill Tailings Radiation Control Act (UMTRCA) which tasked the DOE with the responsibility of stabilizing, disposing, and controlling uranium mill tailings and other contaminated. URANIUM MILL TAILINGS REMEDIAL ACTION PROGRAM From the late s, it was known that the misuse of uranium tailings was not unique to the Grand Junction, Mesa County area.

Inthe U.S. Congress passed Public Progress report on the Grand Junction uranium mill tailings remedial action program bookthe Uranium Mill Tailings. The mill processed about million tons of ore and uranium-laced slimes and slurries through milling and leaching before the mill closed.

Left behind: million tons of tailings spread over   The Moab UMTRA Project is to relocate mill tailings and other contaminated materials from a former uranium-ore processing facility (millsite) and from off-site properties known as vicinity properties in Moab, Utah, to an engineered disposal cell constructed near Crescent Junction, Utah.

Uranium mill tailings were among the first hazardous nuclear weapons production legacy wastes to be created as their production go back to s and the places were uranium was first mined and milled in.

Pohl papers, Collection Number: National Waste Terminal Storage Program Progress Report, for period April 1, to Septem Box 16 Progress Report on the Grand Junction Uranium Mill Tailings Remedial Action Program. February from the Grand Junction site were accepted for co-disposal with Uranium Mill Tailings Radiation Control Act residual radioactive materials at the Grand Junction, Colorado, Disposal Site.

The primary relevant and appropriate regulations for the remediation of the Grand Junction site are 40 CFR ,File Size: 1MB. InCongress authorized the DOE to assess and clean up contamination at 24 designated former uranium processing sites. The DOE is also responsible for cleaning up properties in the vicinity of the sites where wind and water erosion deposited tailings or people removed them from the site for use in construction or landscaping projects.

The U. Dept of Energy is responsible for bringing 22 former uranium millsites into compliance with ground water standards determined by the U. Environmental Protection Agency.

These standards require that contaminants in the ground water not cause an unacceptable risk to human health and the environment.

One of three compliance strategies is selected for each site; no further Author: Donald R. Metzler, Sam Marutzky, Randall Juhlin. Mill tailings are the fine-grained, sandy waste byproduct material that remains after the milling process has extracted and concentrated the uranium from the ore.

Mill tailings are typically created in slurry form during processing, and are then deposited in an impoundment or "mill tailings pile," which must be carefully regulated, monitored. By that time USV had significantly expanded operations on site and formally named the town Uravan (derived from a combination of the words uranium and vanadium, the winning entry in a company-sponsored contest).

Finally, in the early- to mids, USV built another mill at Uravan to process mill tailings into uranium oxide, or yellowcake.
