Subject: Request for Information

Mr. Edquist,


The Utah Department of Environmental Quality referred your request for information about the former Atlas millsite to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). Thank you for your interest in the Moab Uranium Mill Tailings Remedial Action (UMTRA) Project. DOE assumed ownership of the former Atlas millsite in October 2001. Since then, DOE has spent approximately 60 million dollars through fiscal year (FY) 2007. These costs have been paid for by the federal government; the State of Utah does not participate in cleanup costs associated with the Moab UMTRA Project. Anticipated FY 2008 funding is approximately $23 million.


Additional information about the Moab UMTRA Project can be found on our website at www.gjem.energy.gov/moab. The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission may have additional information about the site when it was owned by Atlas Minerals Corporation.
