Site Of The Day - LVRJ Yucca Mountain Archives

Yucca Mountain, located 100 miles northwest of Las Vegas, is the proposed site of a repository to hold the nation's nuclear waste. The U.S. Department of Energy wants to use the mountain to bury 77,000 tons of radioactive waste.

On Feb. 14, 2002, energy secretary Spencer Abraham recommended Yucca Mountain to President George W. Bush for nuclear waste storage. Bush has accepted the recommendation.

The Las Vegas Review Journal newspaper has been tracking this controversial proposal from the beginning.

Keep up with coverage of the project here and find out more about what it could mean to Las Vegas and Nevada.
