Nye County residents split over Yucca'' s possible impacts

AMARGOSA VALLEY– Nye County residents and authorities are still divided on possible security and environmental impacts of the proposed Yucca Mountain hazardous waste repository, five years after the job was deserted.

A number of dozen residents and authorities who went to a public meeting Thursday night provided mixed views on a recent report by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff that concluded a nuclear repository 100 miles northwest of Las Vegas would yield “only a minimal increase” in health danger from radioactive particles that might leakage into groundwater.

Any pollution leaking into the groundwater below the repository would eventually take a trip through Amargosa Valley and into Death Valley.

While the job might enhance the fortunes of cash-strapped Nye County, which has actually been associated with the Yucca license application procedure because the website was accepted by Congress in 2002, some residents expressed hesitation about its security.

Amy Noel, general supervisor of Tecopa Hot Springs Resort, stated the potential contamination from the repository would influence regional eco-tourism, which has been booming for the previous few years.

“It seems like a really bad idea. I understand this has to do with this groundwater research, however to be transferring nuclear waste across the country to among the only locations that does not produce (it), it is bothersome,” Noel stated.

Others were less important of the idea. Bruce Crater, an Amargosa Valley citizen, said he was hoping the project was going to go through.

“I would much rather have that material right here at Yucca Mountain, 11 miles from where I live, a 1,000 feet underground safe and secure, because it’s on a site where nobody is going to go in there and trouble with the product that exists. They cannot shoot it, they cannot do anything that they do on these other sites,” Crater said.

The licensing process for the task was stopped when the Obama administration trimmed federal financing for the site in 2010. Nevertheless, a 2013 ruling of the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia forced the regulatory commission to proceed with license hearings.

An NRC panel conducted Thursday’s conference and another one in Las Vegas on Tuesday.
