Pahrump Valley Times – Radioactive waste to travel through Pahrump

August 30, 2017 – “Low-level radioactive waste will soon travel through Pahrump as part of the shipping campaign to the Nevada National Security Site, officials said.

Nye County will receive low-level waste from the West Valley Demonstration Plant [sic] in New York state.

The waste will be mostly made up of building debris consisting primarily of concrete rubble with some steel. In addition, shipments will include minor components of soil, piping, lightweight building debris and miscellaneous materials, officials said.” Link to Article
