Springville Journal – Guest Column:It’s time for the Department of Energy to clean up West Valley.

August 31, 2019 –  The following is a guest column from the Town of Ashford Board: 

Once again, the Town of Ashford and the West Valley Demonstration Project are on the outside looking in as far the United States Department of Energy is concerned. A recent DOE proposal for interpreting high-level waste might have cleared the way for relocation of West Valley’s high-level waste, but DOE has now updated that proposal to exclude West Valley. Also, DOE could be disposing the transuranic waste that has been stored at the site since the 1980s, but DOE refuses to dispose of this waste at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant, the one disposal site in the nation where it belongs. The Town of Ashford and its residents deserve better. Link to column
