Environmental group sues uranium mill operator
Question of the Day
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - An environmental group is suing the operator of a southern Utah uranium mill, alleging it has worsened pollution in neighboring communities.
Grand Canyon Trust filed the suit in Utah federal District Court Wednesday against Energy Fuels Resources relating to operations at its White Mesa Mill in San Juan County.
The group says the mill’s radon emissions in 2012 and 2013 surpassed federal standards and alleges the company ran more waste pits during that time than federal regulations allowed.
Trust attorney Anne Mariah Tapp says emissions from the nation’s last operating conventional uranium mill pose serious health risks.
The company said in a statement Friday it has complied with regulations and has not been issued any violations.
Surrounding towns include Blanding and Bluff, a little over 300 miles south of Salt Lake City.
