EPA wants to dig up, ship out ordnance-plant waste|

Mead-area residents and the general public are invited to a meeting tonight to discuss how to clean up radioactive and other hazardous waste at the University of Nebraska Agricultural Research and Development Center on the outskirts of town.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is proposing two possible solutions: Dig up the waste, separate it, and ship it to several facilities for proper disposal, or leave it in place with a protective cap or cover and monitor it for many years.
Depending on which option the federal agency chooses, the cost could range from $5.7 million to $7.5 million.
EPA says its preference is to dig up the buried waste, separate it and transport it off site.
