Geological Survey (USGS) on the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Yucca Mountain Project. Let me emphasize from the outset how seriously USGS takes this situation. In February Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham declared Yucca Mountain safe and suitable as a geologic repository and President Bush accepted the declaration.

By law, Nevada was allowed a veto of the site. Gov. Kenny Guinn issued his veto in Aprilbut three months later, Congress overrode the veto and approved Yucca Mountain. The USGS-NVWSC office in Henderson, Nevada assisted the USGS-YMPB by maintaining a water-resources monitoring network (Yucca Mountain Environmental Monitoring Program) to assist DOE in meeting environmental and water-permit requirements.

However, this monitoring network was discontinued in March. Yucca Mountain – A Potential Geologic Repository The Department of Energy (DOE) is studying Yucca Mountain as a potential repository for radioactive waste. If approved, the site would be the nation’s first geological repository for disposal of spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste.A bill to expedite the licensing and development of Yucca Mountain nuclear waste site in Nevada was passed by a subcommittee on Thursday, clearing the first hurdle for legislation expected to be.Selected Ground-Water Data for Yucca Mountain Region, Southern Nevada and Eastern California, January-December USGS Open-File Report [Glen L.
