DOE http://wyomingpublicmedia.org en DOE releases numbers from testing of uranium-contaminated site on Wind River http://wyomingpublicmedia.org/post/doe-releases-numbers-testing-uranium-contaminated-site-wind-river <p>The US Department of Energy has released data from sampling the agency did at the Riverton Uranium Mill Tailings Radiation Control Act Site in August. The area, which is on the Wind River Indian Reservation, was contaminated with uranium and vanadium in the late 1950s &nbsp;and early 1960s, when a uranium mill processed ore there. In the ‘90s the DOE recommended waiting for natural dissolution to clean the site, and levels of contamination seemed to be diminishing predictably until a big flood in 2010.

The Uranium Mill Tailings Radiation Control Act site was contaminated after hosting a uranium mill there in the 1960’s. &nbsp;</p> Thu, 02 Aug 2012 23:45:37 +0000 Irina Zhorov 27881 at http://wyomingpublicmedia.org More groundwater testing for uranium-contaminated Riverton site
