    The Rocky Flats Plant was a U.S. manufacturing complex that produced nuclear weapons parts in the western United States, near Denver, Colorado. The facility's primary mission was the fabrication of plutonium pits, which were shipped to other facilities to be assembled into nuclear weapons. Operated from to , the complex was under the control of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC Location: Jefferson County, Colorado. Abstract. The review presents a short discussion of the principal adverse effects of uranium mining and milling on the environment: release of radionuclides and toxic elements with atmospheric and liquid effluents from uranium mines and mills, dispersion of radionuclides with and from solid wastes produced by uranium mining and milling, and contamination of ground waters from in situ leaching Cited by: 8.

Supporting Member States with environmental remediation and decommissioning of nuclear facilities is an important part of the IAEA's work. This topic was discussed in detail today in Vienna at the IAEA's General Conference during the side event 'Sustainability of the Nuclear Fuel Cycle: Focus on Decommissioning and Environmental Remediation.'.

Uranium in the environment refers to the science of the sources, environmental behaviour, and effects of uranium on humans and other animals. Uranium is weakly radioactive and remains so because of its long physical half-life ( billion years for uranium).The biological half-life (the average time it takes for the human body to eliminate half the amount in the body) for uranium is.
