EPA PROPOSES RULE TO ELIMINATE
RADON MEASUREMENT OF OLD TAILINGS CELLS
Comment Period Extended to October 31, 2014

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a proposed changes to the National Emission Standards for Radon Emissions from Operating Mill Tailings: 40 C.F.R. Part 61, Subpart W. The proposed changes would end the requirement to measure radon emissions from the older tailings impoundments at White Mesa. The radon emissions from Cell 2 exceeded the emission standard of 20 pico Curies per square meter per second (20pCi/m2/-sec). Radon emissions from the tailings impoundment increased due to the dewatering of the impoundment. Energy Fuels Resources Inc. (Energy Fuels), the mine owner, reduced the radon emissions by cleaning up windblown tailings from Cell 3 and addition soil to the interim cover. Under the new regulations, Energy Fuels would not have known of the increase in radon emissions and would not have had to reduce the emissions to meet the standard. Under the proposed rule, Energy Fuels will not have to measure radon on Cell 3, which will also go through a lengthy dewatering process.
