Purview: West Valley Nuclear Site and other nuclear waste sites across the country
Note: As the only commercial reprocessing facility in the United States and by provisions of the West Valley Demonstration Project Act, West Valley has the ultimate obligation and responsibility to prove that the serious risks of nuclear waste can be isolated from the environment for hundreds of thousands of future generations. This is a national issue associated with the nuclear industry and includes military endeavors and aspirations.
