Regulators have decided that blended nuclear waste, including waste once considered too hot for Utah, is now good to be dumped in the state. Local environmental advocates of HEAL Utah are hoping to put the heat on the Governor’s Office to reverse that decision at a special rally Tuesday.
HEAL Utah along with other veteran state activists are rallying against a decision by regulators with the Division of Radiation Control to allow certain new blends of radioactive waste to be brought into the state by Energy Solutions. The activists will be rallying outside the board meeting of the Radiation Control Board, where regulators will be discussing and defending their decision to bring waste into the state, after the press conference and rally.
Come check it out Tuesday, Jan. 10, at 2 p.m., Department of Environmental Quality, 195 N. 1950 West, Salt Lake City.
