Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Uranium waste in western Pennsylvania
State DEP waste plan concerns officials

A state environmental agency should take another look at a plan to ship
uranium-contaminated waste to a landfill in Westmoreland County, local
officials say. 

"This maybe wasn't the best decision," said East Huntingdon supervisor
Howard Keefer, who asked the state Department of Environmental
Protection for another review of the plan. 

In October, DEP issued a permit to the Kiski Valley Water Pollution
Control Authority to remove 12,000 cubic meters of uranium-contaminated
ash from a former wastewater treatment lagoon in Allegheny Township. The
ash is slated to go to the Greenridge Landfill in East Huntingdon before
the end of the year.
