A flood through Moab uranium tailings could poison Las Vegas drinking water

An unseasonable flood through a 17 million ton uraniam tailing pile 500 miles upstream in Moab, Utah could spell the end of Las Vegas valley's drinking water supply. Isn't it about time mainstream science started paying attention to radiation remediation methods?

Fukushima saw a situation in which the engineers who built the facility did not properly anticipate the magnitude of storm that ended up hitting the facility on March 11, 2011. Their having put the emergency pumps in the basement further shows their total denial about what mother nature could do.

Such a catastrophe actually hangs over Las Vegas as well, and the extend of mother nature's unleashing wouldn't be that high above normal. Ninety percent of Vegas valley's drinking water comes from the Lake Mead reservoir, which is in the Colorado River drainage (source) -- about 500 miles downstream from a 17 million ton uranium tailing pile in Moab, Utah. There is no containment berm protecting the pile from an unseasonably flooding Colorado River.

Below is an email I received today from my New Energy Congress associate, Gary Vesperman, who lives in Boulder City, Nevada, neighboring Lake Mead. I share this for two reasons. One, to hopefully prevent such a thing from unfolding by spurring remedial measures; and second, to get you scientists among us thinking more about how we can remediate radiation in general.

It's an email Gary wrote to John Hutchison, who has working on nuclear remediation for several years, and is coming up with some promising results.

Hi Nancy and John,

Wednesday Steve Davis called. His wife Karen had found on the Internet my list of methods of neutralizing radioactivity.

One of their projects is mitigating the unhealthy radioactivity of a pile of 17 million tons of uranium mill tailings on a Colorado River flood plain a mile from Moab, Utah.

They live in Las Vegas. We met yesterday. 

I wrote for them a new compilation of "Radioactivity Neutralization Methods for Moab Uranium Mill Tailings" (attached [11 Mb docx]). Its first chapter from David Yurth includes an aerial photo of the pile. Google Earth also shows the pile NW of downtown Moab.

It's a serious mess that needs to be cleaned up. It may also be urgent because there may be a 'monster' El Nino brewing in the Pacific Ocean. See link on the front page of the book. If so, starting as early as this coming winter, there may be unusually heavy snow and rain in the Upper Colorado River basin. I have studied maps of Colorado and Utah. I don't see much in the way of dams in the Upper Colorado River which could hold back excessively heavy runoff. 

The excess Colorado River water could wind up flooding the Moab uranium mill tailings. Steve and I examined the Google Earth aerial photo of the pile. Steve told me there is NO containment berm protecting the pile from a flooding Colorado River. Massive amounts of very unhealthy radioactive materials would then leach into the Colorado River and ultimately render possibly undrinkable my own Boulder City tap water! Bye Bye Las Vegas! (Unless the Las Vegas water district chooses to not warn Las Vegas water users about their unsafe water!) 

As is Karen warned me and Arden that our water may already be too radioactive to drink. Before panicking I would first like to see some public health science and exact measurements of the radioactivity of Lake Mead water. I do remember reading from many years ago that Lake Mead water had at that time too much radium dissolved in it. I may have read about Lake Mead radium in the book "Perils of the Peaceful Atom"? 

During our meeting Steve, Karen, Arden and I decided that it would be best to move fast on doing what we can with the Moab pile.

The front page of the attached ebook links to Steve's brochure on the Moab problem. His company's website is Atlas Cities of Commerce   www.citiesofpeace.com 

David Yurth pointed out that any methods that are proven to reduce the radioactivity of low-level waste such as the Moab uranium mill tailings should also be applicable to high-level nuclear waste, particularly the Fukushima situation. So therefore a Moab project would be an ideal lab for testing radioactivity neutralization methods. Handling possibly lethal high-level waste requires expensive equipment and personnel. 

However the Moab tailings are still somewhat unhealthily radioactive. Steve told me that the heavy equipment used to shovel, truck, bulldoze, etc the tailings became so radioactive that they were buried in the vicinity of the pile! As is Moab residents do suffer higher than average rates of cancer. Nearby Navajo tribal members also want the mess cleaned up. 

In our discussion via emails about the Moab project, David wrote that he and some other people had actually met Jack Keller about 13 years ago in Seattle. It was found that Keller's 'volcano in a can' is a fraud. So at least I was able to delete about three pages of text re Keller's method. 

My goal with the Moab ebook is to simply compile methods that seem to be applicable only to the Moab pile. We still have way too many methods that somehow need to be winnowed down. 

What is your conjecture as to what your device may be able to do with the Moab uranium mill tailings?

I am still waiting for your parts list and drawings so I can replicate your device with two Las Vegas energy experts who have already volunteered to help me build one or more of your devices. Please expedite because of the Moab pile. I already have an offer to finance the procurement of parts and labor for your device. (I already have billed the funder for three hours of my own time.)

My plan is to take your device to Moab once we have it built and tested. I have no idea just how to go about actually applying your device to the pile. 

I certainly would take radiation measurements before and after turning it on next to or on top of the pile so that we could verify that your device actually does something useful with the pile. Do you have any idea from past experience how deep into the earth your device can effectively reduce radioactivity? How does the underlying geology affect your device's performance?
