ANDREWS, TX (KCBD) - A decision in Utah potentially affects West Texas.
Tuesday, the Utah Radiation Control Board put off a decision until September about the fate of depleted uranium. One of the options would be to send it to the Waste Control Services site near Andrews.
You might recall W.C.S. from a NewsChannel 11 Investigates story pertaining to some controversy at that site. Some believe it's above the Ogallala Aquifer. Others, including Waste Control Services, say it is not.
