"EPA Agrees To Update Radon Emissions Standards From Uranium Mills"

"The Environmental Protection Agency agreed Friday to update its standards on radon emissions from uranium mills, including Cotter Corp. in Cañon City.

Published Friday in the Federal Register, the agreement was reached following a 2008 lawsuit filed by Colorado Citizens Against ToxicWaste and WildEarth Guardians. The suit challenged the “failure” of EPA to strengthen nationwide radon standards at uranium mills, and the EPA agreed to conduct an expanded public process while revising and updating its radon standards.

CCAT representatives called the decisions a victory for public health."
