Moab Uranium Mill Tailings Remedial Action (UMTRA) project removing radioactive uranium from the old Atlas Uranium Mill site. The mill processed uranium for nuclear weapons and nuclear power plants from 1956-1984. The US Department of Energy fear that long-term exposure could harm human health, and that it may contaminate the adjacent Colorado River. 16 million tons of tailings are being removed to a safer disposal site 30 miles away. - Jim West - 2015-07-14
