April Meeting for Uranium Contamination of Navajo Nation

The EPA, Navajo Nation, other federal agencies, and organization will be having a meeting on April 16-17 in order to address the uranium contamination on the Navajo Nation.

During the fifth annual workshop for the Navajo Nation’s uranium contamination, the attending agencies, organizations, and members will be discussing the cleanup progress of the area since its 5-year plan first kicked off. The meeting will also discuss the next five-year plan. The contaminated areas are in three states, which is about the size of West Virginia.

The EPA, Department of Energy, Bureau of Indian Affairs, the Indian Health Service, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission are the federal agencies that will be attending the workshop. The event will kick off at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, April 16 at the Gallup Inn in Gallup, NM.
