Phone 2 Action - Protect Bears Ears Region from Radioactive Waste from Japan

After extracting the small amount of uranium the waste contains, the toxic leftovers would be dumped — forever — in the White Mesa Mill’s waste pits just east of Bears Ears National Monument’s original boundaries and next door to the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe’s White Mesa community.

Please urge Utah regulators to:

  • Require that Energy Fuels Resources (USA) Inc. obtain a specific import license from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission for the Japanese waste.
  • Deny future requests to send toxic and radioactive waste to the White Mesa Mill.
  • Protect groundwater and air quality in the Bears Ears region for the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe’s White Mesa community and for future generations.

Please take 1 minute to personalize your message, share your experience of Bears Ears, and explain why bringing more foreign radioactive waste to the region concerns you personally. Your personal message helps regulators understand public concern.
