EPA PROPOSES YUCCA MOUNTAIN RULE TO PROTECT HEALTH FOR 1 MILLION YEARSWe'll be watching...
The Environmental Protection Agency proposes revised standards to protect public health at the radioactive waste repository at Yucca Mountain in Nevada for 1 million years.
The proposed rule would set a maximum dose level of 15 millirem per year for the first 10,000 years after the repository stops accepting waste, including spent nuclear fuel from power plants, and a standard of 350 millirem per year for the following 990,000 years.
