A federal appeals court panel has delivered the second legal defeat in three weeks to a company seeking to build and operate a low-level nuclear waste dump in the Mojave Desert. A three-judge panel of the District of Columbia Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals dismissed the case of US Ecology Inc. on Tuesday. The case sought to force the U.S. Department of Interior to sell a 1.7-square-mile Ward Valley site to the state of California for use as a dump for radioactive waste.

The state Health Services Department has ordered its attorneys to find a way to build a controversial low-level nuclear waste dump in the Mojave Desert if a key state commission carries out its intention to block the construction. The fate of the proposed $40-million facility 24 miles west of Needles, in the Ward Valley, has been unresolved since June, when the State Lands Commission deliberately delayed action.

Scientific evaluation of the safety of the proposed Ward Valley nuclear waste dump has come to a halt after the firm chosen to operate the dump threatened to sue the scientists involved. The testing to determine if radioactive waste could leak from the eastern Mojave Desert site was to be carried out by Lawrence Livermore Laboratory and two members of a National Academy of Sciences panel on Ward Valley, for the U.S. Department of the Interior.

Progress has yet to pay a call on this steamy little city overlooking the Colorado River. Sure, there's a batch of spiffy new townhouses going up along the golf course, but economic development remains as rare as a cool breeze in August.

American Ecology Corp., an Agoura Hills waste management firm, said its US Ecology Inc. subsidiary is moving the headquarters of its California radioactive waste disposal operations to Sacramento from Agoura Hills. US Ecology had previously planned to manage the operations from Louisville, Ky. But the company said it would better serve its California business from Sacramento.

American Ecology reported a 59% drop in net income on a sales decline of 22% for the calendar first quarter. The Agoura Hills waste management firm said it earned $700,000, or 24 cents per share, on sales of $10.4 million. American Ecology attributed its downturn to delays in the implementation of laws governing low-level radioactive wastes, which are handled by American Ecology's subsidiary, U.S. Ecology.

Gov. Kay Orr said today that her life has been threatened and that she will not campaign in a county divided by plans to build a low-level radioactive waste facility. The threat came within the last six months, and she knows who made it, Orr said at a news conference this morning. But she declined to disclose the name. The Nebraska State Patrol is investigating, she said.

Radioactive material that would be deposited in the proposed Ward Valley low-level nuclear waste dump near the Colorado River would come largely from nuclear reactors and could be far more toxic than previously portrayed, according to a study by the Congressional Research Service.
