Final Environmental Impact Statement For Remedial Action Standards For Inactive Uranium Processing Sites (40 CFR 192), Volume I.
The Environmental Protection Agency is issuing final standards for the long-term control of tailings piles at inactive uranium processing sites and for cleanup of contaminated open land and buildings. These standards apply to tailings at locations that qualify for remedial actions under Title I of Public Law 95-604, the Uranium Mill Tailings Radiation Control Act of 1978. This Act requires EPA to promulgate standards to protect the environment and public health and safety from radioactive and nonradioactive hazards posed by residual radioactive materials at the twenty-two uranium mill tailings sites designated in the Act and at additional sites where these materials are deposited that may be designated by the Secretary of the Department of Energy. The Final Environmental Impact Statement (Volume I) examines health, technical considerations, costs, and other factors relevant to determining standards. Volume II contains EPA's responses to comments on the proposed standards and the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EPA 520/4-80-011).
