Radioactive Uranium To Be Moved From Oak Ridge Soon
For years now Nevada residents have fought a plan to dump nuclear waste into a dormant volcano known as Yucca Mountain. It appears now that they have lost the battle. U.S. Department of Energy officials say stocks of radioactive uranium could be shipped from the Oak Ridge National Laboratory to Nevada starting in 2013. Agency officials are not disclosing exact dates because of safety and security reasons because of the fissionable material's potential use in nuclear weapons. It appears now that the Department of energy has been approved to start the shipments by rail to the Nevada National Security site pending the official go ahead. The shipments are part of a program to dispose of a stockpile of old reactor fuel called the Consolidated Edison Uranium Solidification Project that has been housed at Oak Ridge for decades. (bg)
