Uranium waste on tribal lands

The press reports that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency reached two settlements this week that will address uranium contamination on the Navajo and Hopi reservations.

The agency says Rio Algom Mining has agreed to investigate levels of contamination at 1 of its sites near Gallup N.M. and that under a separate agreement, the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs will assess the 30-acre Tuba City dump to determine how best to clean up contaminated soil, groundwater and waste.
