Emergency Closure of Red Mountain Road on BLM-managed public lands near Piercy, CA The Skull Valley Bank of Goshute Indians is a federal recognized Tribe with 125 enrolled members. The Band’s reservation consists of 18,540 acres in Tooele County, Utah, about 70 miles West of Salt Lake City. Approximately 30 Band members live on the reservation. The proposed lease would have allowed for the operation of an Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI) on tribal lands. Spent nuclear fuel (SNF) consists mainly of intact fuel rods removed from a nuclear reactor. The rods contain pellets of uranium, each about the size of a pencil eraser, that are the source of heat inside a reactor vessel. When removed from reactors, the uranium pellets stay in the fuel rods, which remain highly radioactive and must be stored in specially constructed pools of water (‘‘wet storage’’) or in specially designed containers cooled by natural airflow (‘‘dry storage’’) until the radioactivity decreases to safer levels, a process that can take thousands of years. The proposed ISFSI at the Goshute Reservation would have been the first large, away from point-of-generation repository of its type to be licensed by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). The ISFSI would have been operated by PFS, a private, nongovernmental entity composed of eight NRC-licensed nuclear power generators. BIA was required to by law to consider environmental issues concerning the proposed lease. The decision to disapprove the proposed lease is the result of concern over environmental impacts associated with the proposal.
