Seeking a license for nuclear dump

June 03, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

The Bush administration will submit a license application to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission today to build a controversial nuclear waste dump at Yucca Mountain, the Associated Press learned.

The repository would hold 77,000 tons of waste, mostly used reactor fuel, which would come from power plants across the nation. State officials question the dump's safety.
