YERINGTON PROJECT

MINE REMEDIATION

Project Description

USA Environment, LP was contracted to conduct three separate remedial actions at the Former Anaconda Mine in Yerington Nevada. The remediation involved removal of 6,000 tons of radiological soil, removal of 21,000 feet of “transite” asbestos pipe, and capping 25 acres of tailings in two former evaporation ponds. All actions were completed in compliance with an EPA Administrative Order on Consent, ahead of schedule and with no injuries to onsite personnel. The EPA “was particularly impressed by the strong emphasis placed on worker health and safety throughout the entire project.”
