Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Rocky Flats refuge
Dispute leaves Flats plan in flux
Mineral rights questions hold up conversion to wildlife refuge

By Todd Neff

December 7, 2004

A dispute over mineral rights has blocked an agreement central to Rocky
Flats' transition from nuclear-weapons plant to wildlife refuge 18
months after it should have been signed. 

Without the agreement, the division of responsibility between the U.S.
Department of Energy and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service remains
unclear, leaving in flux the future management of the land. 

There can be no legal transfer of Rocky Flats land to Fish and Wildlife,
and no Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge without the agreement. That
transfer is scheduled to happen at the end of 2006, once the $7.4
billion Superfund cleanup is complete.
