  • Hopi villages address EPA with uranium plume concerns

    By S.J. Wilson
    Upper Moenkopi, Arizona (NFIC)

    Members of the Hopi Tribe joined with Navajo allies to hear from federal and private agencies what they can expect as far as remediation efforts at the Tuba City open dump only two miles from an UMPTRA (Uranium Mill Tailings Remedial Action) site.

    Governor Hubert Lewis welcomed the visitors, explaining that villagers were present to discuss clean closure of the Tuba City open dump. Studies support that the Rare Metals uranium mill used the dump to dispose of contaminated materials.
