Description:

Yucca Mountain in south central Nevada is the site of a governmental project for long-term storage of radioactive waste. Although it is a highly controversial subject, the project, if approved and completed, will certainly be an engineering marvel. A tunnel to a massive repository deep under the mountain is expected to take several years and cost billions of dollars. The Nuclear Waste Page of Eureka County has continually updated reports about the status of the project, pictures and maps of the surrounding area, and information about federal and state legislation. A detailed timeline shows the history of the issue and even continues until 2033 with future plans for Yucca Mountain. This Web site is an excellent resource for people to learn about the project and the many factors involved in nuclear waste storage.
