Nuclear Regulatory Commission - Press Release
No: IV-16-018 August 31, 2016
NRC Issues Confirmatory Action Letter to Power Resources, Inc.
Nuclear Regulatory Commission has issued a Confirmatory Action Letter
to Power Resources Inc. of Casper, Wyo., documenting actions that the
company has agreed to take before resuming shipments of radioactive
sludge to a Utah facility.
The letter formalizes commitments
company officials made to the NRC following two incidents in which
containers of radioactive barium sulfate sludge, a byproduct of uranium
ore processing, arrived at the facility in Blanding, Utah, with some
external contamination from leakage during transport. The incidents
occurred in August 2015 and March 2016.
