The White Mesa uranium mill in Southeastern Utah.

The Environmental Protection Agency has ruled the White Mesa uranium mill in Southeastern Utah can no longer accept radioactive waste from Superfund sites. The mill sits just a few miles away from the Ute Mountain Ute community of White Mesa. KZMU's Justin Higginbottom speaks with a lawyer who fought for this decision about the mill’s future.
