Army has new plan for JPG exit|
Peggy Vlerebome Madison Courier (IN) June 21, 2005
The U.S. Army has proposed a new idea for extricating itself from Jefferson Proving Ground, asking federal regulators to let it decommission its depleted-uranium license in five years. Unlike the most recent previous Army plan, the new one would not have the Army continuing to monitor the environment for five years at a time for an indefinite period.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff has accepted for technical review the Army’s proposal for how it would go about getting ready to decommission its license to use DU at the proving ground, where munitions containing radioactive depleted uranium were tested for 10 years beginning in 1983. The Army had to obtain a license from the NRC in order to use depleted uranium at JPG.
