Redevelopment at the Site

Recreational activities surrounding the site include, but are not limited to, hunting, fishing, camping and rafting. Limited mine reclamation and exploration drilling activities also take place nearby. Land use on site is mostly fall and winter grazing of beef cattle. In the future, the PRP expects to transfer parts of the site to the Department of Energy (DOE) Legacy Management program. The DOE program will conduct long-term maintenance and surveillance of the repositories. Site stakeholders expect that the PRP will transfer other portions of the site to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Montrose County.
