Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Nuke waste near Hill Air Force Base
Nuclear Regulatory Agency OKs Utah waste repository

Waste News
September 12, 2005

The Nuclear Regulatory Agency authorized a license for Private Fuel
Storage LLC to build and operate a nuclear waste repository in Skull
Valley, Utah.

The commission voted 3-1 on Sept. 9 to deny the state of Utah´s final
appeal in the matter. The state had argued that one of the 7,000 F-16
military jets flying each year from nearby Hill Air Force Base could
crash into the site, causing radioactive contamination.
