Just how radioactive is that nuke fuel the feds want to bury in Nevada? Sandoval wants to know
[link to www.lasvegassun.com]


The Energy Department said it expects federal approval for the shipments soon.

A newspaper report says there would be 403 canisters each containing 2.6 kilograms of uranium. Each would have a high level of radiation but there would be a shield on the containers to reduce the radiation in half.

The materials would be buried at 40 feet or more at the location formerly called the Nevada Test Site about 65 miles from Las Vegas.

In September the nonprofit Institute for Policy Studies said the Department of Energy plans to waive safety requirements to dispose of uranium 233 by putting it in a landfill.

It said the federal agency has failed so far to account for all uranium and that the material "is stored in safe facilities or safely dispose of." The study said that if as little as 19 pounds of uranium 233 fell into the wrong hands, it could make an explosion that could destroy all of downtown Washington, D.C., or a similar-size city.
