Ute tribe argues that uranium waste threatens water

 


In a video released Tuesday, the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe and Grand Canyon Trust claim that the White Mesa uranium mill in southeast Utah puts local water sources at risk of contamination.

The 36-year-old mill is the only conventional uranium mill operating in the country. It also borders the White Mesa community, a satellite reservation of the Ute Mountain Ute reservation.
