Attend the Governor’s public hearing on uranium mining on Monday June 18, 6:00pm at Chatham High School, 100 Cavalier Circle, Chatham, VA.
The National Academy of Sciences’ report on uranium mining confirms that Virginia’s wet climate and vulnerability to extreme natural events presents steep challenges to uranium mining, milling, and disposal of radioactive wastes. Tell Governor McDonnell’s Uranium Working Group we need to heed the report’s warnings and KEEP THE BAN!
Virginia has a nearly 30-year ban on uranium mining. The uranium industry is making a well-financed push to repeal the ban so they can mine and process uranium, starting in Southside Virginia. Drinking water, human health, farmland, property values, wildlife and tourism across Virginia are at risk.
