Esmeralda County Repository Oversight Program

Esmeralda County Repository Oversight Program goals are to provide oversight of the proposed Yucca Mountain High Level Waste Repository 90 miles north of Las Vegas. This website contains information about the Yucca Mountain site, the studies conducted by the Department of Energy (DOE), and the current licensing process regulated by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) which started in 2008.

Please see the current timeline of events here.

We've also included maps developed for ongoing studies conducted by the Esmeralda County Repository Oversight Program (ROP) offices to create a baseline of existing conditions of Esmeralda County. These maps can be useful to compare current conditions and to prepare for any future transportation of high-level waste through the county to the proposed Yucca Mountain site.( Please see the transportation page. )

We have also included photographs, links to regulatory authorities, the State of Nevada's Yucca Mountain Oversight website, and affected local governments in Nevada and California.

We update our links to Yucca Mountain in an effort to have a site that provides a broad and informative location where the public can visit and find current information regarding the future of Yucca Mountain. Please visit our news page for current information regarding the Yucca Mountain High-level Nuclear Waste Repository.
