The Moab Uranium Mill Tailings Remedial Action Project is located in southeastern Utah. This 480-acre site includes a former uranium-ore processing facility that operated under private ownership from 1956 to 1984. The project includes relocation of the estimated 16-million-ton pile of uranium mill tailings and other contaminated material near the Colorado River to an engineered disposal cell constructed 30 miles north near Crescent Junction, Utah.
