 Uranium Mill in Tuba City, Arizona

 

Tuba City Uranium MillTuba City Uranium Mill

The Tuba City Uranium Mill Site is located in Coconino County, Airzona and is covered under EEOICPA as a DOE facility for the remediation period of 1985-1986 and 1988-1990. Remediation workers  for these years are eligible to file Part B and Part E claims.  Workers covered by RECA 5 (Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA)) at Tuba City Uranium Mill are also eligible to file a Part E EEOICPA claim.

During its 10 years of operations, this mill processed about 800,000 tons of uranium ore. This ore processing is covered under the auspices of the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act and is not separately covered under EEOICPA. However, DOE environmental remediation contractors performed environmental remediation under the Uranium Mill Tailings Radiation Control Act (Public Law 95-604) at this former uranium ore processing mill from January 1985 –February 1986 and again from January 1988 – April 1990. DOE and DOE contractor employees who performed this remediation are covered under EEOICPA. (credit DOE)

The September 1982, History of Domestic Uranium Procurement under US AEC Contracts, Final Report, pages A-3 to A-6 extensively describes the work done at Tuba City Uranium Mill.
