Colorado Uranium Disposal Site Stays Open

The waste site where the U.S. Department of Energy is stashing uranium mill tailings will be open through 2031 in part due to the federal coronavirus relief and spending bill.


This is an extension based on a bill signed in December which extends the life of the site through 2031 or until the site is full.


Originally the Department of Energy had been planning to completely shut down this facility no later than 2023. If that were to happen, the site would need to stop accepting disposal waste no later than September 30, 2021.


The site covers about 94 acres and accepts low-level radioactive waste. This is the only government-owned, noncommercial disposal facility in the united states which is still open to accept uranium mill tailings.


Apparently the site is already about 95% full, but at the current rate there's enough space for the site to stay open for over 80 more years.
