EPA/AR RIN: 2060-AP43 Publication ID: Spring 2010 
Title: Revision of Health and Environmental Protection Standards for Uranium and Thorium Mill Tailings and Uranium In Situ Leaching Processing Facilities 
Abstract: EPA’s regulations in 40 CFR 192 establish standards for protection of the public health, safety, and environment from radiological and nonradiological hazards associated with uranium ore processing, and disposal of resulting waste materials. These cross-media standards, which apply to pollutant emissions and site restoration, must be adopted by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, their Agreement States, and the Department of Energy. We propose to review all the standards in the existing rule, revise the regulations to take into account significant changes in uranium industry technologies and their potential impacts to groundwater, recent revisions in EPA drinking water protection standards, judicial decisions concerning the subject regulations, and need for new radiological risk assessments to take into account unanticipated risks to the general public and environment. New proposed facilities proposed in states from Virginia to Alaska, in addition to ongoing regulatory efforts by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for facility licensure and groundwater protection in advance of concomitant revised EPA standards, add to the urgency of undertaking this effort.
