Fed Sets Date For Nuclear Waste Storage

(Washington, DC) — The federal government has set a new target date for a nuclear waste storage site.

The Department of Energy hopes to identify a permanent location by the year 2026, and have the burial site open in 2048.

Originally, the DOE had hoped to begin storing radioactive waste from the nation’s nuclear power plants and other sites at Nevada’s Yucca Mountain in 1998.

The Obama administration has all but stopped work on the Yucca site northwest of Las Vegas, which has led to lawsuits by several states.
