The Nation

February 11, 1986

President Reagan, expressing confidence that the technology exists to offer "every precaution" against radiation leakage, said that certain areas of the country will have to accept their proximity to future hazardous-waste disposal sites. "We've got to have the confidence someplace along the line that we know enough now that we're not going to make this hazardous threat to any section of the country," Reagan told a group of out-of-town journalists. "But some places are the ones that we're going to have to pick," he said. Three sites--in Hanford, Wash., Deaf Smith County, Tex., and Yucca Mountain, Nev.--are the proposed finalists for the first nuclear waste depository.
