Recent investigations of uranium mining and milling operations in the Grants Mineral Belt of New Mexico found serious environmental problems to be associated with these activities. The purpose of this investigation was to determine whether or not similar problems existed in the South Texas uranium belt. The investigation showed that these problems did not exist. Activities included in the investigation were (1) a literature search to gather background information; (2) a search of the files of state environmental regulatory agencies to assemble pertinent data; (3) an aerial and surface reconnaissance of the area involved; and (4) discussions with involved persons in both the governmental and private sectors.
