The New Mexico Department of Public Health requested the assistance of the Public Health Service in an investigation of waste disposal at the uranium ore milling plant of the Anaconda Company at Bluewater, New Mexico. The investigation was undertaken because of concern over possible pollution of groundwater in the Grants-Bluewater area. The Health Department expressed particular concern over the possibility of excessive nitrates from the mill wastes polluting the wells that serve as the source of municipal water supply for Grants, New Mexico. The report summarizes activities and data available to date, and suggests the direction in which the investigation should continue.
