Bullet point summary of the Moab Project and the White Mesa Mill Alternative. The context of this summary is that in 2001, the Moab site, in Grand County, Utah, fell under the control of the Department of Energy. A plan was then formed to relocate the uranium mill tailings pile on the Moab site to the White Mesa Mill (located approximately six miles south of Blanding, Utah), a fully licensed and active uranium mill site.

This research was completed money allocated during Round 5 of the Citizens’ Monitoring and Technical Assessment Fund (MTA Fund). Clark University was named conservator of these works.
